L: pours thick and dark brown with a film of tan head that fades fast. Black in the glass.
S: big cinnamon, coffee and nice barrel. I love the cinnamon in this.
T: very nice balance of cinnamon, coffee and barrel. My only knock is that it isn't as sweet as many, but this isn't a stout either. But this is all in balance.
F: very smooth, a bit of a dryer finish. This coats well for medium thickness.
O: a great Ba cinnamon and coffee beer.

2016 bottling, gold-wax capped.

Pours thickly and stout-dark with a large, fluffy tan head that laces well. Sweet yet balanced nose of sweet caramel, vanilla, bourbon, spices, faint coffee and chocolate, malty body...vanilla bourbon barrel and caramel blend awesomely with the light cinnamon character...not too boozy, though the barrel the there and the caramel, vanilla, and even toasted coconut are all present on the palate. Full bodied, sweet and fairly viscous and sticky, but smooth with no alcohol burn.

This thing is phenomenal. Not overly sweet, nice flavor profile, just right in my wheelhouse. Couldn't drink a lot of this though, might get cloying.

Bomber into a snifter appears black in color with a mocha head that fades leaving stringy lace.

This smells roasted and earthy with chocolate, plenty of coffee and anise with some booze and faint cinnamon.

The taste is bitter earth, coffee, cinnamon, chocolate, bourbon, oak, caramel and vanilla.

This is medium in body with modest carbonation. Some pretty solid stuff here.

Winter ales aren't usually my thing but this one is tasty. Lots of cinnamon and spice. Barrel is present too. Coffee bitterness tries to balance it all out. Real good brew!
