Nose: 2020 Winter Blend’s beer cask lineage shows up immediately upon pouring, with a sparking cider aroma and a sweet malty note. There are a myriad of backup aromas. Cinnamon, orange blossoms, almond paste, candied citron, and a dash of butterscotch. Also a whiff of sharp minerals and damp earth. A fresh feel about this one. Flavor: Zingy barrel spice and white pepper marrying nicely with ripe round fruitiness, and butterscotch/toffee undercurrents. Dried fruits, apricot and cherry?, peeking through. The finish brings additional vanilla, citrus and some leather to the show.

Aromas of vanilla, butterscotch, apricot, cinnamon and slight cider from the beer barrel. Nice, think mouthfeel with cooked agave, slight molasses and effervescent finish from cider note.

I’m getting cider, cinnamon, vanilla, agave, pears, cherry, and hay on the nose. Taste agave, caramel, cider, cherry, flowers, white pepper, leather, and a surprising effervescence on the finish.

Light amber color in the glass. Aromas of vanilla, cider and alcohol (probably because I just opened the bottle). Flavor of cooked agave and caramel. The finish does have that hint of effervescence from the beer. No burn even at cask strength of 46%.
