1 liter, over priced ($50) bottle. Deep brown with an off white head. Honey, spices, very light barrel aging noticed, and vanilla. Very drinkable for 10% and this one actually was better than I would have thought going in.

Magnum bottle courtesy of goryshkewych. Cheers, George! Pours a hazy brown with a white head. Nose is big caramel, spice, ginger, vanilla, and honey with wood and vanilla. Flavor is similar- huge caramel, big ginger, some spice, vanilla, and oak. Medium in body and a noticeable alcohol presence.

Murky amber color with a small beige head out of the bottle. Strong spice and bourbon nose. Great warming bourbon sense to this beer. Cinnamon, nutmeg, bourbon and vanilla notes. Full flavored beer with a nice use of a barrel.

DrSilverworm (6979) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - DEC 18, 2012
Sample from a 2011 magnum, towards the end of a big bottleshare. Mildly hazy amber brown color. Minimal off-white head. Awesome bourbon aroma, works wonderfully with the winter spice aromas (cinnamon, ginger, nutmeg). Good honey and maple syrup notes. Bigger body, good dry texture, lighter carbonation. Great beer. Yes. Tastes like Christmas.
