Over 9 months in Stranahan’s Colorado Whiskey barrels has completely transformed our prized winter seasonal, producing a Hibernation that starts with big whiskey flavors before mellowing out into luscious chocolate, dark fruit, and vanilla. Each limited edition bottle is individually numbered, making a special addition to your cellar. If you can take only one beer into your cave this winter, we strongly suggest this one.

CampesinoTino (799) - Seattle, Washington, USA - MAR 30, 2015
750 ml Bottle. Reddish brown pour topped with a half-inch of tan head. Aroma of vanilla, brown sugar, dark fruits and toasted oak. Flavor is toffee, whiskey and chocolate with a bit of red wine and dark sugars toward the end. Mouthfeel is medium-bodied with low carbonation and a final dose of toasted malt and oak in the finish. Relatively smooth and easy to sip considering it’s high ABV.

JaBier (5928) - Capital City, Ohio, USA - JUN 20, 2015
Bottle purchased at the Beverage Source. Hazy brown pour with a thick tan head. Aroma of malt, caramel, bourbon and light hop. Caramel and bourbon flavor with a slightly dry finish. As it warms I’m getting a little bit of funkiness that suggests this one may have been on its way to infection. Glad I drank it early.

Capped 750 from Wine and Cheese. Pours really dark brown with a slight tan head. Aroma is chocolate treacle. Full bodied. Flavor is treacle, chocolate and something plummy/pruney. Whiskey is present - but not bourbon. Some wood. This is complicated stuff. Heat is detectable.

Had at RBWG 2010. Awesome chocolates and coconut in this. Obvious BA here, pretty damn good. I just wish the base beer was a bit better.

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!
