Draft Extreme Beer Fest 2016. Pitch black color, Thin tan head. Aroma is very light ginger bread with bourbon and chocolate notes. katrinaez (1894) - norristown, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 1, 2016
Flavor chewy molasses, dark chocolate nuances, honey with a mild gingersnap cookie. The Bourbon is lasting and does wonders bring all the flavors together. Nice full, thick mouthfeel. I don’t even taste the alcohol. Very well constructed and I can’t believe how great this is! I would seek out a bottle.
Yes. Fantastic. Big Graham cracker scent and taste. Cinnamon, sugars and the bourbon barrel brings in some extra booze for a soothing bite. Nice dark coloring and palate is thick. Tap TheEpeeist (3709) - Media, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 20, 2016
25.4 oz bottle, my 100th rated Spice/Herb/Vegetable! Dark brown with a creamy beige head. Nose is bourbon, ginger, coffee and caramel with hints of black cherry. Coating medium to full body with a tang finishing sticky with soft carb. Taste is bourbon, candied ginger, vanilla and coconut milk. A bit burnt on the backside with residual spice. I’m not sure the bourbon is the best compliment for the ginger but still tasty. allmyvinyl (10480) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - JAN 16, 2016
