We take recently emptied barrels and refill them with our Winter Warmer English-Style Dark Ale. We then age this majestic ale for 10 weeks, resulting in a skillfully balanced, ambitious blend of dark malts and English hops, complimented by dark fruit, raisin and vanilla characteristics. The oak is very apparent, adding additional depth and complexity - yielding an ale that is large in personality. So raise a glass of holiday cheer!

KAggie97 (3529) - Ugly, Hot, and Humid Spring, Texas, USA - JAN 8, 2011
Pours a nice, slick brown with a nose of vanilla, caramel, tobacco, and oak. Very pleasing in my booger suitcases. Flavor is light but tasty oak, bourbon, vanilla, pipe tobacco, and caramel. Average mouthfeel. Great, great beer; funny how the nose and the flavor match. What a world.

1 year aged bottle. Hardcore aroma of bourbon and faint roasted malts. It poured a beautiful unfiltered translucent dark brown color with superb head retention and amazing lacing. Flavor of toasted malty goodness, oak, with a strong finish of whiskey that lingers on the palate. I’m loving this brew and can’t wait to have it again this year

Bottle at RBESG 2011 Grand Tasting at The Dean Swift, London. Pours ruby-brown with a foamy, off-white head. Big dark, ripe fruit nose. Medium to big sweet flavor, notes of raisin, fig, prune and subtle roasted malts. Full bodied with fine carbonation. Warm finish, mild wood, some hard alcohol, more dark fruits. Very good beer.

Boutip (5266) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - MAR 20, 2012
Bottle: Poured a clear dark brown color ale with a medium size foamy head with good retention and some light notes of lacing. Aroma of medium bourbon notes with some light vanilla with some light caramelized malt notes. Taste is also a mix between some caramelized malt notes with light toffee undertones and some vanilla and bourbon notes. Body is about average with good carbonation and no apparent alcohol. Very well brewed with nice balanced between complexity and drinkability.

Pours dark brown...opaque...with a medium tan head. Aroma has mild candied fruits, faint peat, raisin, and mild bourbon. Flavor has light raisin and vanilla...bourbon is light...almost like a dubbel. Mouthfeel is medium and silky with some nice oak and very mild bourbon in the finish.

650 ml bottle from trade with TJ. Poured into a snifter. Beautiful brown reddish hue. Little to no head. Amazing scent of bourbon and raisins. Nice medium mouthfeel. Lots of dark fruit and bourbon on the front slowly melts into a creamy buttery finish. Very well balanced. Taste of bourbon throughout, but not the least bit boozy! Completely delicious! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
