    this has got to be by far the better of any Holiday/Winter ale's I have tried. Whiskey Barrel aged so it gives of nice smokey whiskey tsate at first, then a nice light mocha after taste. none of it too strong or overpowering... Juuuust right. I have to say, the alcohol content was very high... this beer would go great with a good steak AND desert!

    8.8% isn't that high, well maybe for a woman it is.

    Looks interesting, I'll have to grab one.

    I was at target last week and the merchandiser guy dropped a case of Breck vanilla porter. It smelled really good. I think I'm going to pick up some singles for Christmas libations. I'll add this to the list. So, one holiday whiskey barrel, one Miller lite, one steel reserve high gravity, etc.

    Well, my trip to the total wine was a complete waste, the place looked like Korea town after a riot and it was busy as hell. I gave up and left

    Well, the grocery store had plenty. I'm trying one now and it has a very sweet finish for a porter.
