Great take on a BSDA. Pours a dark brown color with a fast fading tan head. No light gets through. Some lacing . Aroma is very pleasant. Malty. and aromatic. Taste is malty, sweet, with some oak and bourbon. The bourbon is subtle and doesnt overpower the beer. Plenty of spicing adds to the flavor as well as the aroma. Mouthfeel is rich, sweet and malty. Well worth a try

Poured from the bottle into a Bruery tulip glass.

A first sudsy and bubbly type formed head, that has a bit of shampoo thin retention to it. Settles to a khaki colored head of a finger with a good bowled collar at it's dissolve. Body color is a dark walnut brown, with hints of deep red hints.

Aroma is certainly Christmas"y" like without question. Large amounts of cherry to hinting nutmeg like brown spices. Comes off with touches of woody caramel qualities, and a nice candied like smell. Hints like a thick flowing beer is coming.

Palate makes some nice inroads. Light bodied for a barrel aged beer, but has some unique flavors. Juiced friut like quality, but with darker raisin and spice brown flavors. Mid palate has a pear like flavor more so than apple, with a finish that is notably cinnamon and nutmeg warm and pleasing. There is however a big boozy stomach warming quality to this beer, making it settle very hot and warm.

Definitely a big Christmas beer, a bit harsh, but certainly a good seasonal one.

The beer pours a nice and creamy tan head that dissipates quickly while the beer itself is an opaque dark chocolate black that looks nice. IT has a good looking creamy texture to it.

The smell is good. It has a good moderate bourbon note with a nice chocolate note to it. There are also some good dark fruit notes such as dates and raisins.

The taste is pretty good. It has a nice blend of dark fruit notes such as dates and raisins with Belgian spices.

The feel is good. It has a nice tingling carbonation and a medium body this is a bit thin for the style.

Overall, good and worth having but nothing to go crazy over.
