We took our Rude Elf’s Reserve and aged it in Makers Mark, Woodford Reserve and Four Roses barrels for over 1 year to add robust bourbon, smoke and oak character to this 10.5% Belgian spiced beer, helping to keep you warm this holiday season.

SERVING SUGGESTIONS

Serve in a Tulip Glass. This big beer needs something to cut through like hot wings, BBQ, sharp bleu cheese, grilled meats. Perfect as a stand alone after-dinner drink, or nightcap.

TASTING NOTES

Pours a deep chestnut ruby with a creamy tan head. The aroma is sweet with harmonic spices led by clove, then cinnamon and nutmeg. The rich body has a fine carbonation that smooths and hides the high ABV, wrapping up oh, so much holiday spice. Finishes very dry, leaving a lingering gingerbread cookie note.

AVAILABILITY

Available seasonally at Allentown and Bethlehem Brew Works in 750 ml bottles.
