3.7 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
22oz bottle into my Rochefort chalice. Bottle # 200 of 492.
The beer pours a watery dark brown with not much retention. The head is light tan, rises only about a half finger but then is gone right away leaving some on the outside of the glass. The lacing is light.
The aroma is medium and starts out very sweet. There are really nice notes of vanilla, caramel and cherry. At the end you pick up a bit of the bourbon.
The taste starts off kinda plain not a whole lot there. You get some sweet a little vanilla then a lot of bourbon to finish. For a beer that was 9 months in a barrell I’m surprised its stronger.
The feel is super watery, which is annoying with a light warm finish.
The drinkaility is ok.
Overall, this was pretty decent. The ale is a little to light and the flavor didn’t really soak up the oak and the bourbon as much.

Bottle:   Deep caramel, nearly brown, thin sudsy off-white head, sparce lacing.   Bourbon and honey on the nose, slight peatiness.   Sweet bourboney maltiness up front, honey comb like cereal, caramel malts, tasty!   Moderate to full body and mouthfeel.   Finishes with a big bourbon and honey comb cereal like maltiness.   Also hints of caramel and vanilla.   Much better than the already good Hibernation.   This is one sweet malty beer.   Thanks Trevor for providing such a treat!

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Thanks to ??? in Denver. Bottle number ???. Pours a dark glowing clear mahogany with a small tan fizzy froth. Chocolate and coconut aroma with a big but smooth bourbon note. Flavor is at first smooth chocolate and woody, some light cherry, lightly warming, very smooth and well envisioned, long woody slightly sweet aftertaste with just a touch of fruit. After a while I pick up on a tart green apple like sweetness that becomes a bit distracting. Round slightly glassy feeling body with soft fizzy carbonation, nicely thin and drinkable. Have one more left.

Bottle poured a dark brown with a dense head. Aroma has alcohol, sweetness and some musty accents. Flavor is sweet, caramel, molasses, wood and bourbon. A bit odd flavor as the alcohol is not hidden here.
