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.

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!

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. Iím glad to have tried it and would certainly enjoy having it again.

kevinator (1851) - The Colony, Texas, USA - JUN 9, 2014
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.
