Dark brown with a thin off white head.

All Bourbon.

Malt and wood that could be fitting for a stout. Toffee and dark fruit, not so chocolatey or desserty. Good bite on the end from the hops, I assume.

Cola-esque, pleasant.

Exactly what I was looking for! The essence and body of the winter warmer was not overpowered by barrel characteristics. A great offering from Rahr & Sons and perfect for a cold night. Definitely living up to its name!

2014 edition, poured from 22oz bomber into snifter.

A: Walnut colored, almost opaque, with medium-high off-white foam with medium retention. Leaves behind good lacing.

S: Malt, dark fruit, barrel

T: Taste follows smell, with some wine-y sour, maybe from the barrel. There's also little spice and bitter lingering. Cannot identify the bourbon in the taste.

M: Creamy with good carbonation, medium-high strength.

O: Had higher expectations after 2013's great execution, and this was a let-down. Still it is a drinkable seasonal.
