Huge thanks to egrace84 for the share! Thanks elliot!
poured into snifter glass.
reviewed from notes taken 01/03/13.
Appearance: light to medium black bodied beer with a thin white cap of head.
Smell: Mellow barrel notes and huge gingerbread cookie and cinnamon. It smell just like GBS with a splash of bourbon.
Taste: This beer tastes just like GBS with a splash of bourbon! The barrel notes give this beer a touch of bourbon and vanilla. But the gingerbread flavor is fantastic and does not have an artificial flavor at all. Cinnamon and nutmeg also have a big prescence in this beer complimenting the gingerbread really well. This beer is sweet, but not even close to being cloyingly sweet, just the right amount of sweetness!
Mouthfeel: medium bodied beer with low end of moderate carbonation. This beer is so smooth. Its so balanced and just a little bit of creaminess! ABV is well hidden. No harsh booziness just a faint warming sensation.
Overall: Hardywood makes another crazy awesome beer. Honestly, I hope that GBS and BA GBS are going to be a Winter tradition for the brewers at Hardywood. GBS & BA GBS are the best christmas beers that I have ever had and no other beer even comes remotely close! The barrel really complements the beer; it still lets alot of the flavors of the base beer shine through and accent all of the regular GBS flavors!
Serving type: bottle

MY 400th DIFFERENT BREWERY REVIEWED!
Enjoyed at EBF 2014.
Sugary, gooey goodness; real gingerbread in a glass all mixed in with bourbon and there's hints of vanilla sprinkled in there. Nice and sweet but never cloying. This one delivers on its promise. Very, very good stuff.
Serving type: on-tap
