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.

Capped 750 from Wine and Cheese. Pours really dark brown with a slight tan head. Aroma is chocolate treacle. Full bodied. Flavor is treacle, chocolate and something plummy/pruney. Whiskey is present - but not bourbon. Some wood. This is complicated stuff. Heat is detectable.

(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.

jbruner (4626) - Marietta, Georgia, USA - NOV 1, 2016
2016 bottle. Pours a deep hazy brown from the bottle with thin wispy tan head. Aroma of big bourbon barrel vanilla and oak notes with a hint of tobacco and earthy must. Taste adds some light chocolate and a hint of bitterness, but still huge barrel notes. Big and boozy, a bit thin but a great beer.

Had at RBWG 2010. Awesome chocolates and coconut in this. Obvious BA here, pretty damn good. I just wish the base beer was a bit better.

5000 (6862) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - NOV 21, 2010
Bottle:   Deep caramel, nearly brown, thin sudsy off-white head, sparce lacing.   Bourbon and honey on the nose, slight peatiness.   Sweet bourboney maltiness up front, honey comb like cereal, caramel malts, tasty!   Moderate to full body and mouthfeel.   Finishes with a big bourbon and honey comb cereal like maltiness.   Also hints of caramel and vanilla.   Much better than the already good Hibernation.   This is one sweet malty beer.   Thanks Trevor for providing such a treat!
