UPDATED: FEB 25, 2014 Bottle from drfabulous. A dark brownish-amber color pours out with a small tan head on top. Just spots of lacing cling to the sides of the glass. Smells great; bourbon, wood, and quite a bit of raisin. A little cherry and vanilla as I dig deeper. Warming and boozy going down; just enough alcohol burn for that ahhh feeling. The carbonation is low-moderate and works well with this beer. The bourbon and wood drive the flavors but there’s a lot of other things going on here: soft vanilla character, raisins, dark plums, semi-sweet caramel. Like a new layer for each part of the sip. A near perfect sipper. I’ve got to give Kuhnhenn credit, they seem to have mastered the big, boozy beers.

Intense flavors of caramel, bourbon, raisins, cherries, plum, and molasses stand out. Undertones of cinnamon, rich wood, vanilla, cider and biscuit. Hints of coffee and dark chocolate round out the complex list of flavors. Very diverse range of flavors all blended together well. A bit too much bite from the alcohol but that’s to be expected.

Bottled 2012 This beer is ugly as fuck. Pours thick, sludgy, brown, flat appearing. Smells goddam sexual: toffee, marshmallow, bourbon, vanilla, graham, all things nice and a touch of tawny port and some minerals. Flavor follows suit with the same descriptors adding brown sugar and a touch of heat. FUll bodied with low carb and a semi dry finish. Nice beer, a little fucked outside the two most important parts: nose and taste, but otherwise could be world class.

On tap at Kuhnhenn for the Winter Solstice. The pour is a really dark brown with hints of ruby and an off white thin head. Heavy complex aromas of marshmallow, vanilla, bourbon and caramel. The flavor is similar. A little more booziness than is detected in the nose, but the mouth feel is perfect. Just thick enough and the flavors last greatly. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

2012. Chalk and gritty texture but an overall smooth drink with lots of dark fruit and nice subtle complexity. Chocolate and vanilla, wood and oak flavors, followed by some plum prune and toffee. You get it all here. Ricidulously smooth for the alcohol content. Aromas of candy toffee and sugar sweetness. Nice dark winter beer you should sip by the fire. Syrupy sweetness that lasts a while. Roasty bittersweet coffee malt aromas and finish.

12oz bottle (2011) shared by dmac for his 3,500th rate. Congrats on being an alcoholic bro! Pours a dark amber brownish color with absolutely zero head. Big boozy aroma full of bourbon, caramel, oak, and hints of dark fruits. Taste is also super boozy with a warm alcohol burn, but in a good way. Notes of bourbon, oak, light hints of dark fruit, and an amazing aftertaste of rich butterscotch! Very nice!

12oz bottle from a trade a long long time ago. Poured a muddy blackish brown with a smaller to nonexistant beige tight foamy head. Aroma is nice, syrupy and big overall with notes of vanilla and toffee, barrel, wood, butterscotch, some bourbon. Full body with light carbonation and a syrupy mouthfeel that lingers with light heat. Flavor is the same as the aroma, a bit hotter with the alcohol, bourbon, vanilla, wood, dry breads, slight raisin, butterscotch candy. Good stuff.

2012 bottle. Pours dark copper in color with a dissipating head that ends up leaving a fine layer of foam and a ring that hugs my glass. The aroma is full of bourbon, vanilla, carmel malts, very toffee like, and a hint of dark fruit. In tasting I noticed medium levels of sweet bourbon, rich malt flavor, sweet syrup like sugars, vanilla, hint of oak, and figs. The finish is moderately bitter with a lingering of booze and sweetness. The beverage balances well for a high abv brew. Overall this is a must try for barrel aging fans.
