Small bottle split 3 ways. Black pour. Lower carbonation and a small head. Big whiskey and roasted malt aroma. Corn up front, but this disappears as it warms and gives way to a nice balance of whisky, roasted malk, wood, and vanilla. Cranberry almost nil,though. Rich full body. Pair with a cigar.

Ferris (6902) - Burnaby, British Columbia, CANADA - AUG 25, 2014
Bottle - boozy bourbon, vanilla and chocolate. Jet black with no head. Bourbon notes, light cranberry and roasted malts. Too much bourbon and fruit, tastes likes the bad Christmas boozy fruit chocolates.

jdobbs (411) - New Brunswick, CANADA - JUL 14, 2014
Mild hop presence, a bit of sweetness and some coffee is what I get out of it from the smell. Taste is coffee with a bit of sweetness right up front, the booze is over whelming and almost kills the any flavour.

RElliott (4) - Kingston, Ontario, CANADA - APR 10, 2014 does not count
Exceptional beer. My favorite beer for the Winter of 13/14. Aroma warm firm smell of bourbon; balances well with the notes of cocoa and dark cherry. Palate was full bodied and smooth. The bourbon finish was perfect. I was fortunate to try this the same evening as the Winter Beard on cask. I fully enjoyed this bear and cannot wait to get some of the next batch.

Lubiere (10788) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - MAR 16, 2014
A deep dark stout with a thin mocha head. In aroma, sweet sweet dark chocolate malt with light fruity notes and bourbon notes, alcohol warmth, very nice. In mouth, a sweet fruity chocolate malt with light grassy hops, licorice, alcohol warmth, very nice. OttBottShare March 2014.

crazy_cat_lady (199) - - MAR 16, 2014
March 14, 2014. 330mL bottle from brewery shop, purchased Fall 2013. Dark brown with no head. Chocolate, cherry and touch of sourness in aroma, hint of oak. Chocolate, vanilla, cherry, oak, bourbon flavours. Very smooth, but also sour -- wonder if I kept it too long in the cellar? Prefer the original Winter Beard.
