Hazy brownish color with a small, off white head that left nice lacing on the glass. Aroma of cinnamon, caramel, light roast, vanilla, wood, and bourbon. Taste of caramel, cinnamon, vanilla, wood, and bourbony alcohol in the finish.

22oz bomb found at Krogers! Yes, Krogers in Blue Ash had this for some reason. This budget buster has a lot of bourbon flavor up front! And back! Bourbon will linger on your tongue. Spice, vanilla? Sure, but relegated to the background. Enjoyable, but thin. Would never re-buy at $12, but glad I tried something so unique and local.

Bottle. Poured hazy light brown color with an average creamy light brown head that lasted with good lacing. Good complex bourbon and dark spice aroma. Medium to full body with a smooth texture and flat carbonation. Medium to heavy complex bourbon spice flavor with a medium to heavy spice sweet finish of moderate to long duration. Complex standout brew.

Taster on tap at Listermannís, sampled immediately after having the standard White Death. Sort of a dark red color, thin khaki head. Good lace. Bit darker than the standard, it seems. Good saigon cinnamon nose, with a hint of bourbon this time, and a bit of pear. Wow! The bourbon is amped up in the flavor here, and works with the cinnamon in a really awesome way, here. Much more of a complex, rich and interesting tasty flavor! Nice spicy and woody aroma. Moderate bitterness. Medium to bigger body. Light smooth carbonation, dry finish. This is an incredibly tasty beer. Iím not sure that Iíve ever had a bourbon barrel aged winter beer before, but the concept really works, here.

Draft to taster at Listermannís. Looks good; a hazy reddish-brown with light beige lacing. Smells and tastes solid; cinnamon and bourbon. Good on the palate. Good beer!
