full review: https://buzzinggeek.wordpress.com/2015/01/18/beer- nasal cavity might have been malfunctioning though, because it was quite difficult for me to get the little aroma I did.
The flavor was sweet malts with the palate being creamy and soft. Great brew! Voodoo (665) - Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 8, 2015
Pours a deep, dark brown with little as far as head.....aroma of bourbon, toast, caramel,....taste is woody malt, raisins, bourbon, a touch thin, coffee and slight bitterness in the back end.....pleasant but not overbearing, a genuine winter warmer and it really opened up on warming.

2013 bottle thanks to crajun. Brown pour with a small head that fades to a ring. Aroma is very fruit and has a strong barrel influence. Raisins, dates, black cherries, vanilla, oak, and a little caramel. Tastes has a light candi sugar sweetness. Almost tastes like a quad. Strong dark fruit and raisin presence, lots of vanilla too. Some burnt caramel. Medium to full body. This is a nice, smooth sipper. Huhzubendah (3705) - Washington DC, USA - DEC 26, 2014
Bottle shared by ygtbsm94. Thanks Brad.
Mohagany body with a thin beige cap. Bourbon, oak, vanilla aroma. Sweet and chocolate tones followed by malt and vanilla. Light to medium in body with soft carbonation. Delicious. jackl (8071) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - DEC 22, 2014
Sample @ Great Arkansas Beer Fest. Brown pour with a small off-white head. Bourbon dominates the nose. Vanilla and hot caramel. Taste has some mellow chocolate. Hot bourbon. A bit of spice. Raisins. Full body, active carb.

Pours a deep brownish black from the bottle with thin bubbly tan head that leaves moderate lace. Aroma of smoke, roast, slight vanilla sweetness. Taste is like a big fruity sweet graham cracker, hints of vanilla and sweet smoke on the back end. Interesting, nice play on the winter warmer style, the booze is actually well hidden.

UPDATED: DEC 6, 2014 Dark roasted malts, bourbon, wood, and hints of dark fruit greet the nose while a dark brown pour produces no head or lacing. Wood, dark roasted malts, a coffee-like bitterness, bourbon, and notes of dark fruit in the finish. Medium-full body and medium carbonation. Round mouthfeel improve as it warms. Overall, this beer had all the elments I’m a sucker for, roastyness, dark fruit, bourbon, and a touch of wood. Well done. beastmaster (381) - Florida, USA - NOV 7, 2014
Botttle from 2013. Poured 2014. Thin head. Black body. Sour sweet, licorice, chocolate. Thick body. Little to no carbs. Well balanced. Syrupy chocolate light coffee some bourbon. All around great beer minus the lack of carbs. Travlr (24656) - Charlotte, North Carolina, USA - NOV 3, 2014
Draft. Deep clear amber color, thin wispy white head. Aroma of big bourbon, cocoa. Taste has more bourbon that overwhelms the beery characteristics. Bruds (45) - - AUG 9, 2014
Pours dark black, with very little head smooth vanilla and chocolate, finishes a little boozy.
