22 FL. OZ. bottle
Served in an imperial pint glass

A - It is rust colored with amber highlights. A skim of tan head is all that graces the top.

S - It smell like the spices have faded and vanilla has replaced them. It definitely has a bourbon smell.

T - The barrel aging has definitely changed it. The spices are virtually gone. It almost tastes like a barrel aged wee heavy. There are lots of malt and bourbon.

M - Medium with low carbonation.

O - I think the regular Frosted Frog is good. I think the barrel aged is really good. I really like its similarities to a barrel aged wee heavy.

look: 4 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4

Appearance: brown in color with a 1/2" head that slowly falls to a spotty surface foam.

Smell: winter spices such as nutmeg and cinammon with some caramel tones come through to the nose.

Taste: caramel, nutmeg, ginger, cinammon, dark fruit sweetness, and moderate bitterness create a nice christmas ale.

Mouthfeel: medium bodied beer. Light crispness from start to finish.

Overall: a nice winter ale that hits the flavor profile of the season. Easy to drink and nicely refreshing.
