    Peter's Creek Lowe's Foods in W-S has Mother Earth's (Kinston) Silent Night on tap. Apparently not BBA version.

    Silent Night is always bourbon barrel-aged. Over the last few years, they've started using different spirits for their barrel aging in addition to bourbon barrels. Fuse will be able to better comment on this topic. If you're in the vicinity, I'd get a crowler/growler. High cat 3 quality stuff.

We have five in the can left from our six pack. Our first Loreleis were on tap at Black Mountain Brewery.
    Not my story to tell; at least one poster on this board was a Bhramari investor for a while.

    Iíve had a couple of their beers a few years ago.

    I still have a Silent Night BBA graciously traded from fuse as part of a basketball ticket for cash and beer exchange. Actually two for tickets. And I think fuse liked the tickets and I got the better end of the deal on the beers. Saving it for maybe 2023 when I hopefully retire.

    Finally got around to drinking a pint of this. Pours a nice dark color. Minimal thin head. Very well balanced between the caramel flavors and the coffee. Just the right amount of sweetness. Maybe a little bit of maple as well. Paired it with a "breakfast for dinner" kind of meal, and it matched really well. Right on the line between Cat 2 and Cat 3 for me. Very much worth seeking out.
    I caved last week .

    Good to know! I've got two 32 oz. growlers to buy tomorrow for an outdoor visit with friends. One is WMB Blissed Out, the other I haven't decided on yet. Probably won't get to W-S though. The other may be the BBA Raisin Pecan Chocolate Pie from Southern Pines. I remember it was mentioned by someone on Ymm, Beer, but can't remember if it was recommended. Help?

    Definitely recommended by me and Tripping Will.

    It has some sweetness to it as is fair for a Bourbon raisin pecan pie beer. But this beer is Cat 3, complex, and you taste it all. Absolutely worth trying.

    In fairness, I'm biased and like a good pie. Enjoy

    Glad you enjoyed. Iím on the lookout for more of this. May have to declare my Independence by visiting the SoPines facility.

    What RJ199 said about the SoPines. As dessert beer as dessert beer gets.

    This would be an unusual find.
    Iíve only seen Silent Night on tap in the Mother Earth taproom, only 750ml bottles seem to leave the brewery in limited amounts.

    The early (2011-2015? 2016?) Silent Nights were solely BBA, in non Mother Earth barrels. Somewhere around 2015, Mother Earth started Silent Night release day, and had variants on draft, including aging in their whiskey barrels, and different adjuncts (chocolate, cherry, peppers,...).
    In the last 2-3 years, there have been bottled variants (only at the brewery) including tequila barrel aged this year.

    Silent Night generally gets my highest recommendation.

    Even if you donít get a growler, Iíd be curious what year, and if it is the original or a variant.

    I knew we could depend on fuse for a better explanation than mine.
