Big, malty, and brewed to keep you warm through the long dark days of a west coast winter. This complex amber ale has vanilla and maple syrup undertones, with a warm, spicy finish. Best enjoyed when only partially chilled.

Very pleasant, and a good drinker, care of Presario. Pours a little mber with a huge foamy topping. The aroma is neutral at best, initially a bit of cheese coming out of the can. Easy mouthfeel, nicely carbonated. Mostly a malt job, with understated spices. (257 characters)

355 ml can from liquor store.

Pours a clear amber, some dark amber hues, very bright, a touch of red, medium sized slightly off white head forms and settles down to a medium ring and layer around the glass, looks good.

Smell is nice, big and malty, some maple syrup and caramel, biscuit, light grapefruit, golden raisins, dry and toasty, lightly fruity and sweet, but a neat spicy component, touch of vanilla, light alcohol, treacle, nice.

Taste is nice too, sweet and malty, big caramel and treacle with an almost tropical fruit kind of sweetness, vanilla, biscuit, raisin, alcohol, a bit of an off almost burnt flavour in the finish, lightly buttery, but the rest is neat.

Mouthfeel is medium to full bodied with low carbonation, light warmth going down. Nice aroma but a couple flaws in the taste. (804 characters)
