Reviewed blind as part of Blind Beer BIF #6
A - Pours a murky muddy brown with very little foam.
S - Strong bourbon, raisin aroma, dark fruit and some vanilla
T - Flavor is the same as the aroma, dark fruit, plums, raisins, some sugary sweetness and bourbon. There is some alcohol present in the finish along with some more sweetness.
M - creamy mouthfeel, medium bodied with a light amount of carbonation. Lightly syrupy.
D - Very easy to drink and enjoy, the alcohol is noticeable but not detracting.
I'm guessing this is a quad or a barleywine but thats about as good as I can guess.
rip it open and its

2013 winter solstice release
The beer pours much darker than the regular barleywine - a very dark brown with a loose off-white/slightly grayish head and no sediment. The nose has deep notes of bourbon, leather & raisins, slight booze, and mild sweetness/fruit when it warms. The taste is a rush of barrel flavors, heavy on the oak tannins and bourbon caramel (definitely more more balanced as it warms) that transitions into the warming caramel/vanilla notes in time. It's full bodied, bold, and slightly syrupy with minimal carbonation with some harsher oak bitterness, which cuts deeply into the beer's bready body and leaves burning ethanol on the palate after each sip. I prefer the regular FGR barleywine in mouthfeel, but think this will not disappoint someone looking for big barrel notes in a bbbw.
