Dark toffee colored pour. Small off-white head. Plenty of lacing. Big aroma of vanilla, caramel and hops. Some dark fruit notes. Taste is a very nice combination of caramel, hops, vanilla, bourbon, some chocolate. Bitter and warm.

Maroon-amber body. It does have a nice amber-malt, woodsy, hoppy aroma. Decent malt-backbone with a well-rounded hoppy-emphatic flavor. Medium-bodied, even luscious.

Bottle:   Deep dark ruby, thin frothy off-white head, spotty lacing.   Soft bourbon nose, a little apple or pear skin.   Faint fruity hop aspect too.   Pale bourbon like notes on the tongue.   Not as big as I was hoping for a 9% Winter Ale.   Really needs to be maltier, chewier, and doesn’t feel like 9% whatsoever.   No warming, no heat.   Malty, slightly mealy finish, with a grainy background.   Hops are... light.   I am not sure what to make of this.   Bourbon isnt strong enough, base isnt malty or chewy enough, grainy malt bill, without much hop presense.   Not a real fan...
