The spices are easy to smell.. really good smelling beer
Caramel and bourbon is easy to pickup in the taste. I won’t lie and say I can pick out all of the individual spices... but man they mix well. This is a super swell beer in my opinion. More complex than Yule Shoot your eye out with a bit more of a bourbon finish.

Bomber. Pours dark brown with a small tan head. Big spicy malty nose with some light hints of the barrel aging. Taste is full of spices and some roastiness which seem to overwhelm the bourbon barrel. Big alcohol kick (cannot find the abv on this one anywhere). Nice full body and a very smooth. Lasting and lingering flavors. Good beer. djd07 (15106) - Houston, Texas, USA - FEB 13, 2015

Sampled at thirdeye11’s birthday party. Glad I got to try this one.
Pours a dark reddish-brown color. The nose is full of cinnamon and a few other spices, as well as some oak and a bit of whiskey. The flavor is similar. The spices come through strong even though there is a good bit of bourbon and oak in the flavor. The barrel aging also adds a nice vanilla quality to the flavor. Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation. MaltOMeal (1094) - Land of Sugar, Texas, USA - DEC 26, 2012
Black w light brown head. Nose is of bourbon, spices, nutmeg. Taste is of roast malt, spices, bourbon. Mouthfeel is medium-thin with mouth-coating aftertaste. This is their Yule Shoot your Eye Out aged in bourbon barrel and is much better in this fashion. Fratto (2845) - Arlington, Texas, USA - DEC 31, 2012

Dark brown pour with a tan head. Great gingerbread aroma to this. Mild bourbon and vanilla which work nicely with the spice character. Sweet caramel, molasses, and toasted malt. Light roast, chocolate, and a bit of oak. Also tastes like gingerbread. Nice vanilla, bourbon, chocolate, caramel, and molasses. Very subtle roasted malt, good spiciness, and brown sugar. mar (5423) - Dallas, Texas, USA - FEB 7, 2013
