22oz bomb found at Krogers! Yes, Krogers in Blue Ash had this for some reason. This budget buster has a lot of bourbon flavor up front! And back! Bourbon will linger on your tongue. Spice, vanilla? Sure, but relegated to the background. Enjoyable, but thin. Would never re-buy at $12, but glad I tried something so unique and local.

This 2013 vintage held up well for the year or so that it sat in the cellar. A good balance of winter spices combine with the malts to create something almost sessionable. If more bottles make their way into distribution (or you find it at the source) be sure to give this winter warmer a fair chance.

Aroma / Appearance - A carbonated base looks like bubbly merlot with a crisp eggshell head for company. Red licorice, cinnamon, nutmeg, and more open up as the beer warms. The resulting combination smells like a mulled wine which has been further aged in an oak barrel.

Flavor / Palate - A chewy mouthfeel sticks to the mouth. Heavy cream, oak, and vanilla yield to nutmeg and cinnamon. A dry finish slowly fades like a morning fog made of caramel and red licorice. If you get a chance to pick up a bottle this reflects the Ohio brewing scene fairly well

This is great. It’s got all the great sweet notes that you expect from listermann, but the barrel aging gives it a backbone that you’d expect from a Triple Digit beer. Depending on which year you’re drinking you can get some great rye notes, or a nice mellow corn sweetness. Wonderful change of pace for winter beers.

22 oz bottle originally tasted in 2013. Pours a hazy amber color with a medium sized off white head. The aroma and flavor have sweet caramel malts, bourbon, cinnamon and additional spices, wood, good winter warmer worth checking out.

Bottle pour copper with amber hue. Nose big bourbon with a little underlying gym sock. Taste pleasing mix of cinnamon, spice, bourbon, vanilla, and sweet malt. Taste much better than it smells.

Bottle on the RBWG 2014 bus. Pours a clear deep amber with a gray head that dissipates to the edges. Aroma has a good amount of sweet grains, caramel and vanilla with a bit of cinnamon bite. Flavor has a much stronger cinnamon note backed by toffee, sweet grain and vanilla.
