COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Over 9 months in Stranahans Colorado Whiskey barrels has completely transformed our prized winter seasonal, producing a Hibernation that starts with big whiskey flavors before mellowing out into luscious chocolate, dark fruit, and vanilla. Each limited edition bottle is individually numbered, making a special addition to your cellar. If you can take only one beer into your cave this winter, we strongly suggest this one.

2014 vintage bottle poured. Amber cooper pour with almost no head. Dark fruit, semi sweet, bourbon aroma. Flavor is sweet raisin, vanilla, smooth bourbon, and other dark fruit. Barley wine like. A smooth, tasty sipper. Very nice.

2016 version, aged 8 months. Smells of fig and plum, plenty of booze, cocoa and some hard to place spices. Very dark brown color with a tight ring of cream colored foam. The taste brings out plenty of the cocoa with some vanilla, big whiskey barrel and a faint amount of the dark fruit from the aroma. Long lasting whiskey and chocolate aftertaste. This is really good. I like barrel aged beers that do not shy away from booze heat.

Five years aged made this into a rich bourbon gem, with wonderful chai spice tea. Dangerously drinkable. Dark brown and very inviting aroma.

A beautiful gorgeous beer. A nice aroma with the bourbon. Flavor is thick and chewy with some chocolate, bourbon and a hint of vanilla. Really good stuff. Worth the high price.

750ml bottle pours dark reddish brown with light red edges and 2 finger head. I expected this to be good but not this good! Nose and taste are delicious with goey maple, caramel, butterscotch, some dark cocoa and bourbony fruits, raisin, light oaky vanilla, layered, nice sweetness level that isnt overdone. Finishes with dark fruit sweetness, creamy body, cocoa and caramel. Buy this!

Bottle (750ml $26): Mostly clear with thin tan head. Whiskey aroma. Taste was sweet raisin with whiskey. Quite good, but maybe not worth the price.

(En ft au Bottlecraft Little Italy): La texture est impeccablement confortable, jai rarement vu un liquide fondre ce point. Par contre cest un peu trop sucr, trop pour tre parmi la crme. Les saveurs sont de lordre de la pte biscuit, du pudding au chocolat et dun bouquet dpices boises.
