Notes & Commercial Description:
Beer added by: MasterSki on 10-23-2013

The Winter Woman imperial brown ale was aged in Woodford Reserve bourbon barrels and Appleton Estate rum barrels – and since we had the name “Working Mom” (thanks Kasey!) already chosen, we felt it appropriate to age the brew in the wood for nine months.

It is wonderfully complex: Notes of the bourbon, and to a lesser extent the rum, come through, married with chocolate, toffee, fruit, and vanilla from the wood. These flavors follow along to the palate, and additionally you will get some lingering hop bitterness and the alcohol warmth that you would expect from a beer this big.

Back on draft at the taproom, Nov. 2015.
Dark brown, undetermined clarity, sharper around the edges. Thin film on the surface slinks away after the first sip, leaving a thin ring of foam at the periphery, no lacing.

Aromas of sweet and nutty malt, mild vanilla and woody bourbon barrel notes from the Woodford barrel. Kind of subdued, some astringency to it that comes out more in the taste.

Big and malty, sweet with more than a hint of boozy bourbon heat. Sharpness from the alcohol gives it a somewhat bracing astringent quality. Vanilla, wood, toasted malts, rich and sweet becoming dry in the boozy finish. Overall it tastes good but is a little rough around the edges.
