I can tell where they were going with this one, unfortunately for me, I got the bottle to late to get there. The beer is starting to go sour ( I bought several as Christmas gifts too :( ) The flavors of the beer couple with its turning don't work well together.

Sampling right now on 4/9/15. Comes in a pretty green 'wine bottle' that is 375ml or 12.7 ounce. BEST BUY DATE: 20/03/18 on back of label. Fra: MIKE and Til: MIKE. Since I bought it and drank it myself. LOL! From the Mikkeller At De Proef Brouweru, Lochristi-Hulfe in Belgium. Bought the brew yesterday on 4/8/15 at the local Hy-Vee just 20 mins away over in Council Bluffs, Iowa and was marked down to just $5.00 and the last one left in the discount bin. Regular price around Christmas is $10.00. Bottle chilled down to 36 degrees in my beer cooler and poured in to a snifter glass.

This 'Baltic Porter' style brew pours a pitch black in color with almost a 2-finger beige foamy head that finally settles down to a thin layer on top with more along the sides of the glass. The aroma of this "Holiday Ale brewed with spices & aged in a Brandy Barrels' is of various spices with roasted dark malts. More going on with the taste as there are many spices in the mix that I have no clue of what they are actually. So I will guess, some star anise, maybe some cloves and cinnamon and ? Anyway, there is lots of other flavors in the mix also with some burnt brown sugar, molasses, chocolate with some oak (?) and a hint of brandy from the barrels it was aged in. LOTS going on! Finishes with a slight bitter finish but doesn't last long. Full-bodied brew with good carbonation. Here is another 'sipper brew' and actually tasted better when it was warmed up. Overall it is different but good.

To finish the night off, Raul will finish the night off.

Thang is creamy, silky, 'good boozy,' and with all that kind of stuff that a real cowboy (like Raul) would love. I mean, Raul is feeling it like menudo while hungover. The right amount of chocolate and bourbon...

Just get it.

Yep!
