A Note on This Beer
Every Black Friday, Mariah Carey makes one billion dollars USD.
You know why, I know why, we all know why. ‘Tis the season. But while crazed shoppers storm Walmart as the stylings of Ms. Carey play in the background, I’m sitting here chilling. I have a stash of BeerAdvocate’s top-scoring Winter Warmer in my beer fridge that needs drinkin’!
The Texans at Rahr & Sons delicately craft this complex sipper just for these colder months, letting the English Dark Ale base sit in 100% American Bourbon Barrels for up to a full year!
Basically, as soon as Mariah Carey fades out in radios across the country, Rahr & Sons gets to work on next Christmas’ special release. Ya know, like Santa!
Right on the pour, seasonal cinnamon and clove aromas fill the room. That aroma leads into oaky, smooth flavors of bourbon and malt. Touches of brown sugar hit the back of the tongue, but the finish is satisfyingly mellow, unlike a big bodied Stout.
Chances are, we’re all gonna listen to “that song” a few times this season. Might as well have a great beer by our side while it’s playing!
Rahr & Sons holds more than 60 festival awards from GABF, the U.S. Open Beer Championship, the Los Angeles International Beer Competition, the World Beer Cup, and the Denver International Beer Competition!
