COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
We take recently emptied barrels and refill them with our Winter Warmer English-Style Dark Ale. We then age this majestic ale for 10 weeks, resulting in a skillfully balanced, ambitious blend of dark malts and English hops, complimented by dark fruit, raisin and vanilla characteristics. The oak is very apparent, adding additional depth and complexity - yielding an ale that is large in personality. So raise a glass of holiday cheer!

tmoreau (7001) - Lombard, Illinois, USA - JAN 11, 2020
UPDATED: JAN 11, 2020 Shared 12 oz. bottle poured to a snifter showing a clear, dark brown color, with a tan layer of froth. The nose was dark caramel, sweetness, a touch of dark/dried fruit, cocoa, some nuttiness, and a hint of barrel induced vanilla. Medium+ bodied, with fair carbonation, the taste was similar, with warming bourbon, and some tannic & earthy bitterness. Suits the season well.
