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.

22-MAR-2012, bottle @Papsø. Dark brown with low beige head. Hoppy malty nose. Sweet fruits and citrus. Fantastic hoppy malty american strong ale-like. Bourbon notes kicks in but really not overly barrel infused. Very like-able.

This was shared by Paul (King of all that is barrel-aged) last weekend. Thanks man! Bottle 431 / 492 The beer is dark brown and for the most part, transparent. The tan head stands in at 1/4" and leaves a decent amount of lacing in its wake. The aroma brings sweet malt, alcohol, oak, caramel, toffee. A very enjoyable brew, and a fine choice for sipping on the deck during the last days of winter. The beer is slightly sweet, with alcohol and barrel flavors prominent throughout. The feel is creamy and smooth, remarkably so given the 11.1% abv. Overall, a very tasty offering. I’m glad to have tried it and would certainly enjoy having it again.

Bottle shared by DalzAle (bottle 98/492). Pours hazahogany with a light thin head that fades to a film. Aroma has vanilla tootsie roll and a gentle barrel scent. Taste is more the same with smooth booze a gentle spice in the finish. Palate is slick and drying. Solid!

Pours an opaque dark brown with a white head that quickly recedes to a ring. The nose is candy and brown sugar with booze and exotic figs. The taste is rich with notes of raisin and figs with creme brulee, vanilla and caramelized sugar. A very sweet, candied, boozey old ale that really hits the spot. Well done

This was a bottle labeled 2011 and having12.4% ABV. In short, it had its way with me and I felt it by the end of the bottle. Strong aroma of whiskey and sweetness. Murky oak colored ale with a thin head. This beer was heavy but still had carbonation. Flavors of bourbon, oak, and caramelized sugar with a chocolate finish. It was boozy but complex.

Very chocolaty smell malty and heavy, reddish black appearance that has some sediment in the end, vanilla sweetness, some good complexity and depth, alcohol taste but not super heavy but prominent, appearance more red than in beginning... At least when held to fire...weird..slightly nutty taste
