Wonderful smell. A little too thin in the mouth for my taste. Delicious.

22oz into a tulip. Pours a deep amber brown w/ a rich fluffy head, sticky lace.

Aroma is big caramel malt, warm roasted barley, toffee, brown sugar.

Taste is likewise sweet and malty. Caramel, toffee, dried figs and dates, warm booze.

Mouthfeel is thick and full bodied.

Overall a balanced, tasty winter warmer.

This was one of the top stars of the Fall trip to Washington and Oregon. Beautiful clear mahogany color in the tall Blanche de Chambly glass. Sensational woody flavor weaves its way through the booze. Sprightly mouthfeel and not so heavy bodied as many holiday beers. Great aroma of brandy and cedar.

Dry rather than sweet, which seems to allow the barrel taste to breathe and lets you enjoy more of the fruity flavors. Just enough malty sugars to mellow everything out. Hops are restrained but add some fruity notes and a bitterish finish. Some sharp and zingy notes complete the trip.

One of the absolute best winter brews I've had. The brewer calls this an "Imperial winter ale." Warm and racy with a satisfying tangy of whiskey. From the 22 oz bottle bought at Bottleworks in Seattle.

Had on tap at Brouwers. Review from notes.

A: Pours a dark brown, slightly burgundy color with a small tan head with minimal lacing.

S: Lots of roast, coffee witha slight hoppy kick.

T: Lots more caramel and chocolate. The finish is very chocolate forward, reminds me of a tootsie roll almost.

M: Medium to full bodied with moderate carbonation.

O: A solid beer, look forward to next years version.

Half growler filled at 99 Bottles - $9 for 32oz (not too bad)

A: Dark brown body with 1 finger head. Lots of small bubbles.

S: Vanilla, oak, booze, some dark fruits. No hops.

T: where do I start? so while the flavors that I do get are quite good, there isn't enough taste. It lacks the punch. This was the same problem with this brewery's porter - it doesn't pack enough flavors. I think the base beer they are using for this is the problem. The bourbon characters (vanilla, oak, booziness) are integrated quite nicely though.

M: This is the real problem with this beer. It's too watery. I think it's also lacking carbonation.

O: Overall - pretty ok. There are many many many other better bourbon aged offerings I would drink over this though.
