Really enjoyed this one. Black with a nice brown head. Smell of ginger, cinnamon and peppers. Taste follows. Nice creamy mouthfeel, balance of flavors between the ginger, cinnamon and moderate spice from the peppers. Not too boozy like some of their recent offerings.

Green wax capped 22oz bottle from LambicPentameter (thanks man!). No apparent bottling date but I believe this was a holiday 2015 release. Served in a Barrel and Barley teku.

Pours oil black with two and a quarter fingers of pale tan head. The froth shrinks back tk a milky surface haze and jagged collar that deposits a few scattered clouds of lace.

The distinct aroma of milk sugar leads and is joined by cinnamon, cocoa and a very subtle oaky bourbon.

Cinnamon is right up front in the flavor with notes of milk chocolate, sweet lactose, a slight smoked pepper heat, ginger, subtle bourbon tinged vanilla, caramel and oak. Surprisingly, given the style, I detect little to no booze and almost no barrel presence. Tasty and easy to drink.

Smooth, creamy, medium full body with silky, soft carbonation. Aftertaste of ginger, cinnamon and milk chocolate covered chipotles.

My first brew from Witch's Hat is a clear demonstration that they can brew some damn fine beer. The Mexican chocolate stout is perhaps an increasingly overdone style but the use of ginger here separates Bourbon Barrel Furious Ginger from the herd. I'm glad I had the opportunity to try this and would recommend it as an interesting variation on the popular spiced stout style.
