Formerly known as High Country Imperial Breakfast Bourbon Stout.

We created Snowed In for relaxed mornings when work is optional and the snow keeps falling. Brewed with locally sourced coffee and rich chocolate, this oatmeal stout pairs well with a hearty breakfast. Enjoy hints of bourbon from barrel aging as you sit by the fireplace.

zoucrew102 (1551) - - DEC 26, 2016
Bomber, 2016 vintage. Coffee aroma with notes of chocolate, whiskey, vanilla and oak. Pours dark brown with a thin mocha brown head that has poor retention and lacing. Starts with sweet chocolate and vanilla flavors with a rich full body and slick mouthfeel. Finishes smooth with coffee and whiskey with a little bit of oak as well as a bit of boozy warmth. Excellent bourbon stout.

22 oz bottle with white wax (2016, release no. 4), on sale at Mr. Bs Wine & Spirits for $16.99. Thick, black appearance, with a small, mostly diminishing brown head. Aroma of coffee, oak, bourbon, vanilla, chocolate, roasted and light caramel malt. Similar flavor, adding medium to heavy sweetness and mild bitterness. Medium to full body with a slick, creamy feel, a little syrupy, with soft carbonation and a smooth finish. Nice, a little on the sweet side overall, but probably my favorite CKB beer.

651 ml. bottle. 12.4% ABV per the label. Bottle 2063 of 2600. Pours a thick well retained, tiny bubbled, beige head, with slight lacing, over a clear, brownish black (SRM 35) body.....nose is heavy roasted malts, with chocolate, coffee, also multiple dried fruits, including plum, raisin, mild bourbon, hints of oak, light herbal hop notes, balance to the malts and adjuncts (coffee, chocolate......taste is moderately sweet, with roasted malts, chocolate, slight coffee, plum, raisin, bourbon, oak, finishing with moderate hop bitterness.....mouth feel, heavy body, sticky, alcohol heat slightly present, creamy mouth feel from the oats and carbonation. This is a heavy, thick, rich, complex beer. It lacks some of the fruity esters found in the best. None of the various elements is totally dominant. The quite high alcohol is remarkably well hidden. This is a dangerously drinkable confection with plenty of ethanol. BJCP 8/3/16/5/7

Ontbeertaster (2362) - Ontario, CANADA - DEC 23, 2014
Bottle, pours dark black with tan head. Aroma is bourbon with a bit of coffee. Flavour is a light bourbon and it hits with some coffee, roast malts and finishes with chocolate. This beer is so smooth and yet so flavourful. No real hype behind this beer but there should be. Sure holds up with the top barrel aged stouts for me. And its got a nice shinny bottle. Worth picking up some of this.

10 oz in a goblet at the brewery. Dude, this an amazing beer. This years release is a little higher alcohol, but the booze doesnt become detrimental. The body is near black and viscous with a long lasting dark head. Loads of bittersweet dark malt give the perception of cacao with real coffee coming through very nicely. The barrel aging is perfect. The palate is dense and creamy. Notes of rich chocolate, coffee and tasteful oak and vanilla make this a savory sipper. Breweries arent cranking out barrel aged imperial stouts like they used to, so this is a perfect local addition to the seasonal beer scene.
