When the leaves fall, there’s a chill in the air and the evening greedily takes hours from daylight, we stand strong and embrace the wintertime. It’s a time of rich foods, roaring fires and our favorite sweaters. Drinks change from refreshing to intense and satisfying. The Mitten is a Winter cider, a blend of last seasons best, aged in bourbon barrels, with the new season’s fresh pressed apple juice. Straight cider, aged for 3 seasons, finds notes of vanilla, caramel and charred American oak, balanced with the best of the orchard, over-ripe apples and their sweet, tart, earthy juice. Many barrels are filled, but only a small portion, the very smoothest, will find their way into The Mitten. We love wintertime, especially when we have The Mitten to keep us warm and happy through the long, cold night.

arminjewell (9143) - East Lansing, Michigan, USA - JAN 3, 2016
Pour out of 750 mL bottle, clear golden pour with white head, aroma brought notes of nice apple, apple peel, dry crab apple into some bourbon, oak, vanilla, slight grainy note in there as well. Taste was a mix of nice oak, vanilla, slight bourbon, into a bit of bready notes into a bit of apple, apple flesh, finishing slightly sweet, slightly dry. Nice combo of flavors.

_angst_ (4125) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - SEP 18, 2015
Bomber courtesy of Hackobock. Pours viscous black with a very thin mocha head that doesn’t leave much trace on the glass while dissipating. Smell is malty with roasted malts, caramel, toffee, vanilla fudge, dark roast coffee, high quality dark chocolate, molasses and bourbon alcohol. Taste is sweet, bitter and malty. Mouthfeel is fat, round, creamy, slightly astringent, boozy and near full bodied. Finish is sweet and bitter with roasted malts, caramel, toffee, vanilla fudge, charred wood, dark roast coffee, dark chocolate, coconut milk, moist soil and bourbon alcohol. Big and decadent BA impy. Bit hot perhaps but overall very tasty.

VsXsV (3640) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - SEP 18, 2015
Bottle. Almost clear golden liquid with fast dissipating medium white head. Aroma of apples, pears, light wood, vanilla, star fruit, light alcohol and light bourbon. Taste is dry and very light sour with notes of mango, apples, light wood and pears. Bit papery. Light to medium bodied with high carbonation. Really nice. Tastes like my home brewed barrel aged cider.

hopscotch (10426) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - AUG 12, 2015
Bottle... Pours hazy and yellow with a small, fizzy, white head. The aroma is wonderful and complex, featuring apples, oak and whiskey. Full-bodied with a milky mouthfeel and trace carbonation. The flavor is tart, moderately sweet and fruity, accompanied by gentle kisses of oak and bourbon. Finishes crisp with lingering tartness and fruitiness. Bottle courtesy of ctipping!

thedm (5281) - Fort Wayne, USA - JUL 19, 2015
This bottled Cider from a beer festival poured a head of frothy medium sized clear colored bubbles that were quickly diminishing and left behind a transparent yellow white colored body and a poor lacing. The nice aroma was red apple and fruity. The semi-dry mouth feel was tingly at the start and at the finish with a lingering fruity aftertaste. The nice flavor contained notes of red apple dry and fruity. A decent one that I would consider drinking again.
