Notes/Commercial Description:
This beer is retired; no longer brewed.

During even the coldest of weather, warm up to the smooth, robust taste of our Winter's Bourbon Cask Ale. Full of rich aromas that you find in the winter months, hints of vanilla and flavorful hops, this is a beer that is great for pouring into a large tulip glass and enjoying with friends around a fireplace.

okay...

how can you call a beer a cask ale if it's in a bottle?

eh, macro people are funny...

it looks much lighter than a normal winter ale should.
it smells kind of strange like vanilla pudding with a shot of bourbon floating in the middle of it. it tastes overly sweet and has a weird bitter alcohol aftertaste, kind of reesty nasty weird aftertaste. it's kind of like having a vanilla bourbon and having the bourbon breath, only not so pleasant. it feels like a normal macrobrew in the mouth only sours your palate afterward. i'm not incredibly fond of this. if i wanted to eat pudding i'd eat some pudding, but i don't want to drink a beer that seems to strive to taste like pudding...
