This beer pours a very deep amber/ almost black with a medium tan head. The aromas are bourbon, chocolate and a touch of cinnamon. The mouthfeel is sweet and watery. This was a great beer! Cant wait to have another! Cheers!

The beer pours dark brown to black with a smallish tan head. There is not too much aroma but what is there is mainly molasses and roasted malt. I really expected more aroma from a beer like this. The flavor is better than the smell. Roasted malt is the main flavor but malt sweetness and spices are also present. The spices are somewhat muddled but I think nutmeg and cinnamon are in there somewhere. The beer is not too complex but is not a bad beer. Medium body with medium carbonation. The beer is very creamy which is the best aspect of the beer. It should be noted that this beer appears to vary in carbonation. I have had several of these this year and the carbonation has varied from almost non-existent to medium. The carbonation definitely helps the beer.

Bottle pours a deep brown with a thin off white head. Laces fairly well. Has a decent aroma of coffee, roast, and chocolate. The carbonation is okay. Has a good flavor sweet but not too much. Alcohol is well hidden. A good blending. The texture is thick. The body id medium. Has a good finish with a good aftertaste. Pretty good beer.

Aroma of roosted malt & coffee. Poured a deep dark brown color with tiny particles floating in the beer matrix. It tasted almost like a stout, but not as strong. A little watery on the palate for me. Overall this is a great local beer that I wish more people got to experience.

Grabbed this on draft. You can tell its the same beer as Whiskey (End of Winter) Warmer, but its better. The bourbon doesnt take over the taste. Theres a roast and raisin taste to it and the finish is a bit sweet. Definitely one of Rahrs better beers.

ttutony (883) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 20, 2009
Deep brown in the glass with a very thin white to tan head. Nice nutty, roasted aroma with maybe a hint of coffee in there too. Flavors on the palate are similar to the aroma. Very nice.

Draught > Gingerman. Better than most Rahr beers but thats not saying much. Seemed to lack flavor. Just tasted sorta bland and the palate was pretty thin too. Nevertheless, it certainly wasnt offensive. Had some sweet roasty flavors. Ill try again just to make sure its not better than Im describing.

Bottle from ericandersnavy. The white tape guy! Thanks a bunch. Pours damn near opaque brown with a foamy 4-finger beige head. Whoa - aroma of dark malt and cinnamon sticks (we just got a bunch of those). Medium plus body with frothy carbonation. Flavor is dark malt, astringent cinnamon bark thing, coffee, maybe chocolate. Yeh, I think chocolate. The head is clinging all over the tulip glass. Ill also buy nutty. But muted nutty. Finishes dry, but some malt sweet insists on hanging around. Then everything goes creamy. Creamed coffee aspects. Enjoying the heck out of this. Merry Xmas guys. Im with Fratto on this one.

Kevin (2194) - Texas, USA - NOV 11, 2009
dark brown that is red when held aloft. aroma is muted cinnamon, like a brachs cinnamon candy. flavor was a bit on the bland side to begin with not sure if i was still dealing with something else or not. slightly metallic the first 1/4 through this and i was scratching my head looking for the flavor. it just took a bit for this to open up. the light roast came through with an enjoyable bread sweetness. althoyugh the metallic note remained throughoput it did not detract too much from my enjoyment. nice fuinish of light pepper alcohol and sweet bread. 3 6 6 3 13

(draught at brewery) pours clear brown with ruby highlights and very little head. Nose is subtle but hints of nuts, roasted malts and coffee. Taste of hairspray, nuts, sweet malt, Roasted malt over-dried fruit and finishes warming and bitter. One of rahrs better beers honestly.
