COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Over 9 months in Stranahan’s 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.

Koelschtrinker (20398) - Köln (Cologne), GERMANY - MAY 9, 2012
Weicher, fast schon zu milder Beginn von dezent holzigen Malznoten. Die Whiskeynoten wirken nicht stark aromatisch, dann aber doch so, als wäre Whiskey hinzugegeben worden, kratzig, rau. Besonders im Abgang cremig malzig, erstaunlich mild, verschwindend geringe Röstnoten. Dann wieder leichte Alkoholnoten. 10/11/11/9/11/9

Theydon_Bois (19505) - Hazlemere, the lower Xhitlerns, Buckinghamshire, ENGLAND - JUN 8, 2014
Bottle at the Jack the Ripper tasting, thanks to the ripper himself, 12/05/14. Murky chestnut brown with moderate off white spotting. Nose is dark toffee fudge, coconut shavings, spice, light chocolate, tobacco. Taste comprises toffee, dark fruit rinds, earthy notes, spice, didn’t quite live up to the vibrant nose. Full bodied, fine carbonation, lightly warming booze at the curtain call. Solid stuff.
