Over 9 months in Stranahanís 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.

mreusch (851) - Olathe, Kansas, USA - DEC 10, 2009
750ml, bottle #311/492, with a big thanks to Brewthusiast! Pours a clear dark iced tea color with burgundy highlights and a moderate tan head. Aroma is milk chocolate, caramel, and light bourbon, oak and vanilla. Flavor is more chocolate, caramel, bourbon and light vanilla and oak. A bit thin too. Not a bad beer, but was was fairly unexciting and hoping for more complexity. Thanks again Travis!

Ughsmash (7426) - Pewaukee, Wisconsin, USA - JUN 6, 2012
750mL bottle, #227/492. Poured a lovely shade of deep garnety-amber with a nice initial beige head. The aroma a decadent blend of sweet whiskey, berries, vanilla, and molasses, with highlights of warm spices and a touch of sherry.. came across just a hair thin on the middle, but it was otherwise excellent. The flavor found molasses, aged caramel, dark fruit, and toffee at the core, with peppery whiskey and dry oak emanating outward.. more dark fruit, tangy whiskey, and some vanilla on the sufficiently warm finish.. good, but it didnít come across as well as the nose for me. Medium-bodied with lower carbonation on the palate.. slick across the middle.. a touch tacky on the finish.. just a decent flow. This was a solid brew that Iíd love to try again.

DalzAle (2012) - Eden Prairie, Minnesota, USA - DEC 15, 2012
Bottle 98/492. Clear brown pour, very little carbonation and sweet malt flavor. Flavor is also a nice meld of strong malt, hint of whiskey, a bit of herbs and finished a little warm. Really good variation, and itís held up really damn well!

Treebs (872) - , Illinois, USA - MAR 10, 2013
750 ml bottle served in a Southern Tier tulip. 2012 vintage. A: Pours a murky brown color with a khaki head forming on the pour. It recedes to a thin cap that leaves some splotchy lace. S: Whiskey notes up front with some underlying chocolate malt. Light spices with some fruity ale yeast. T: More of the barrel comes out with some caramel sweetness. Whiskey notes with some spiciness as well. Sweet malt with some mild fruitiness. The barrel takes over mostly. M: Medium bodied with a medium carbonation level. Very smooth. O: Pretty solid overall. The whiskey barrel is prominent without being hot or overbearing. Definitely enjoyed this one. Serving type: bottle
