We couldnt stand the idea of going nine months without our Winter Warmer, so we decided to hold some in reserve. Bourbon Barrel Winter Warmer is aged in three-year-old Buffalo Trace barrels to add hints of oak and bourbon to our Winter Warmers already complex taste. After aging our 2008 World Beer Cup Silver Award-winning Winter Warmer in bourbon barrels for six month, Bourbon Barrel Warmer will be released in 22oz bottles in late April.

2009 bottle. Pours a c;ear deep amber with a slight orange hue and a tan head that dissipates quickly to the edges. Aroma has a good amount of bourbon that melds nicely with sweet grains, caramel and a bit of dark bread. Flavor has a good amount bourbon as well, but the backing sweet grains and caramel are less prevalent making the finish a bit thing.

On tap at the brewpub. Brown beer in the snifter with a small brown head. Big bourbon nose. This is a big, bourbon centric beer. Lots of vanilla and big malty sweetness, but all under the bourbon. Tastey but simple.

From a growler of "Bourbon Barrel Winter Warmer" - Not exactly a "bad" thing but the aroma reminds me a bit of dill pickles immediately then a moments pause later I get the vanilla bourbon. Bourbon dominates this brew. Malts.

Bottle. Pours clear amber with no lacing. Aroma and flavor are heavy malt (bread, cookie, toast), floral hops, and fruity esters (pear, peach) with light bourbon notes. Medium body, warmth, and carbonation with a sweet texture and dry finish.

UPDATED: MAR 15, 2011 Pours clearish amber. Nose of bourbon, cherries, plums, oak and caramel. Vanilla, more oak, bourbon and caramel in taste. A little thin bodied, but sticky. Like a watered-down Backwoods Bastard. Tasty, but a little lacking.
