This cask is our spiced winter seasonal ale aged on medium toasted oak. A tasty brew that complements all holiday festivities. It is typically malty in body, lightly hopped, and rounded out with spices that vary from year to year.

2013 Highland Woodford Barrel Aged Cold Mountain served at the 2013 Hotoberfest. Pours dark reddish-brown; nearly as dark as a porter. Light haze. Small, weak head leaves some lacing and a lasting thin ring. Feel is rather thin, with low but adequate carbonation (cask). Light body is very smooth. The smoothness, and the BB flavoring and aromatics distinguish this from the normal version, which I had again a couple of weeks ago and which I may like better.

Sampled on tap during Jax Beer Fest 2013. Thanks to the rep for tracking me down! Amber pour with a small khaki head. The aroma shows mostly sweet malts, caramel, toffee, and a hint of dark fruits and oak. The flavor is much the same, mostly the base beer, sweet malts, caramel, toffee, etc. with very subtle oak attributes. Not bad.
