Mother earth four seasons winter.

22oz bomber pours with a nice dark body that supports a dark tan head. The aroma offers up a blend of chocolate, marshmallow, spicy bourbon and molasses nuanced nutmeg. The taste delivers chocolate, soft bourbony marshmallow and then some thin spicy oak. To midway some spices move forward creating a sort of nutmeg sensation. Nice and I enjoy how the barrel treatment is in balance with the beer notes, or even a little behind.

Tasting at Matt’s
The color is dark brown, near black, the head is not persistent. Smells like nutty ice cream, biscuit. Good body strength, quite sweet, tastes like chocolate and peanut ice cream, too much alcohol.
Weird but nice.

650ml bottle, and I have to say Fuk Alex but that aside the peanut butter is certainly present and oh so yum. Smooth and just good

mcberko (19193) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - SEP 1, 2016
22 oz. bottle, pours black with a small tan head. Aroma brings out bourbon barrels upfront, followed by loads of peanut butter, and lots of sweetness. Flavour is along the same lines, with lots of boozy bourbon barrels and peanut butter upfront, followed by light cocoa. Very boozy and peanut buttery on the finish, but it works well. Very nice.

Oakes (19027) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - SEP 1, 2016
Dark brown, no head. The aroma is mostly peanuts, with some chocolate, and a touch of coffee. On the palate, Sweet palate, like peanut butter ice cream. Vanilla, and just ends up being quite sweet. Artificial, though it could certainly be worse in that respect. Still, comes across as a reasonably well-made gimmicky stout.

bhensonb (15852) - Woodland, California, USA - JUL 18, 2016
Bomber shared by Marcus. Pours dark brown with a tan head. Aroma is bourbon and a very slight peanut note. Sort of sugary dark malt. Med body or so. Flavor is bourbon, some graham flour notes, Some dark treacle. Straining for peanut, but it’s doubtful. Eh, could be tho.

marcus (10753) - Sacramento, California, USA - JUL 18, 2016
Bottle from Corti Brothers. Pours dark brown with a nice tan head and a treacle and bourbon aroma. There is a rich dark molasses flavor with a lot of bourbon.

On tap @ Harry’s Hofbrau - San Leandro. Listed as the Winter 2015 version of the Four Seasons series. Black in color with a finger of tan head. Get a fair amount of bourbon and barrel here with sweet dark fruits, vanilla, and licorice candies. Get a good bit of dark and milk chocolate here, too. Moderate roast, some booze/heat, and a light bitterness.

Tap at Mother Earth as "Winter Sintax aged in Bourbon Barrels." This was released in bombers as Four Seasons of Mother Earth Winter 2015. Clear deep cola pour with good lace. Nose is more dark fruit with moderate spicy alcohol. Taste is oily and sweet with raisins and dates, low bitterness, medium body. I’m not getting any peanut butter.
