On at the brewery. Pours a dark amber brown color with a medium white head. A big fruity ginger nose with chocolate and oak. The flavor is sweet sugary malt bases, vanilla, oak, massive ginger works somehow very well. Chocolate all over. Awesome.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Poured from a 22 ounce bomber. The ginger is huge in both the aroma and flavor. There is a strong bourbon character, coconut, vanilla, soft caramel. There is a firm malty note, raisin, alcohol. This is a warming beer, solid winter warmer.

Dark Amber pour from 22oz bottle. From Blackwells. Aroma is boozy bourbon maple and slightly ginger. Taste is syrupy and boozy. Sweet. Maple ginger and for sure bourbon. Not sure I like the mix that much but appreciate what they did.

Bottle. Pours a fairly hazy dark brown color with a smallish tan head on there. Nose is heavy with ginger in there, and I get little of the base beer or the aging. Taste has some bourbon to it and some ginger, as well as just a bit of the Brrr to it. OK.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours a dark amber color with a white head that lasts throughout. Aromas are a bit on the light side but consists of ginger (obviously), caramel malt and vanilla. Flavors are more of the same. The bourbon and ginger makes for a good combination. Full bodied and slightly boozy. Certainly a unique beer.

Not sure how the addition of ginger ups the abv 1.3%, but that’s where it’s at. Maaaaybe a slight improvement, or at least a welcome addition to, the standard vanilla oaky boozy Brrrbon. Good stuff. You can see a s---ton of ginger in the pour. Refreshing for 10%+."

Tasting at Bruce’s pad. Hazy amber beer, good pale cream colour head. Palate is light and airy. Fine carbonation. Smooth sweetish malt, light cream. Big floral ginger but only modest heat. Mild tangy bourbon provides a nice contrast. Light and slightly bitter finish. Ginger warmth lingers on. Unusual and drinkable.
