After years of being ten minutes too late, our bartender gave us his. It’s everything great about the Warmer and everything great about whiskey.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle from a trade. Nice and smooth here. Elements of wintery spice and a little molasses in the aroma. Slightly sweet. Treatment adds some body and complexity but not a ton of flavor. A little wood and bourbon on the finish.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle via MaltOMeal. Pours a deep glossy brown and sports large, dense, frothy light tan lace-inducing suds. malty nose of caramel and pancake syrup with a slightly minty hop edge. Balanced malty caramel flavors..not much of the bourbon comes through, but its nice and full and malty and satisfying regardless, at least for the most part. I get a little bit of the oakiness in the finish, but the bourbon has not settled into this much at all. Haven’t had the non-bourbon version, so nothing to compare...but it would probably be better with some bourbon vanilla accents. That being said, there are no glaring faults in the beer itself and it’s a nice cozy warmer, regardless.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
2013 bottle thanks to crajun. Brown pour with a small head that fades to a ring. Aroma is very fruit and has a strong barrel influence. Raisins, dates, black cherries, vanilla, oak, and a little caramel. Tastes has a light candi sugar sweetness. Almost tastes like a quad. Strong dark fruit and raisin presence, lots of vanilla too. Some burnt caramel. Medium to full body. This is a nice, smooth sipper.

8%? No way...pour is opaque and cola brown with a dense sticky tan head...smell is toasty and sweet...caramel, molasses, vanilla, and bourbon...taste is toasty and sweet too with similar flavors...slight bitterness in the finish...booze comes out a bit then too...maybe I believe 8% afterall.

sample at big texas beerfest pours black with a thin tan head. Aroma is light barrel, oak, vanilla, roast. Flavor is licorice, and light barrel elements of vanilla and wet wood. Enough roast to make the body interesting and the barrel is finessed enough to not be overbearing.

Poured a pleasent enough black with frothy head. But at first sniff, I knew I was in trouble- heavy coconut that followed all the way to the taste. The palate was a bit thin as well.
