Rahr & Sons Brewing Company Bourbon Barrel Aged Winter Warmer
Hello beer lovers and welcome to another edition of the NorCal Beer Blog's brew review.
Tonight’s featured beer is Rahr & Sons Brewing Company Bourbon Barrel Aged Winter Warmer.
From the Rahr & Sons Brewing Company website: “We take American oak barrels and refill them with our Winter Warmer English-Style Dark Ale. We then barrel age this majestic ale for 12 weeks. The result is balanced, yet bold blend of dark malts and English hops with a sweet, smooth vanilla and oak finish.”
Let’s get started!
Appearance: Pours a clear dark brown with a thin off-white head leaving spotty lacing.
Aroma: Bourbon, dark fruits, oak, vanilla, caramel and toffee.
Taste: Bourbon, toasted malts, caramel, dark fruits, oak, vanilla, spicy and earthy hops.
Overall: Smooth and drinkable, Rahr & Sons Brewing Company Bourbon Barrel Aged Winter Warmer is good. This 9% ABV offering is a nice seasonal and worth a try for fans of the style.
