Deep amber color with a creamy off white, one-finger head. Aroma is of Chocolate sweetness and a slight spice. Taste is complex but not overbearing. It hides the ABV quite well and is a pleasure to drink.

Picked up a bottle of this from last years batch, it held up very well. Carbonation was perfect. I was surprised at how dark the beer presented when poured into a wide globe glass. The nose on this beer gives is caramel sweetness upfront with a slight spice note on the finish. Also picked up a chocolate note as it warmed. The taste blew me away. Toasted malt forward with caramel sweetness upfront, rounding through chocolate notes and finishing with a dry spice leaving me thirsty for more. Great beer from a great brewery, give this one a try.

This was my first beer from these guys, and I was a pretty big fan. It's a good mix for a winter warmer, some spicy but a nicer light refreshing feeling to it. Could also definitely taste some brown sugar sweetness in here. The color was definitely appealing, a coaxing dark reddish-brown that looked great for cold weather. Good stuff!

Pours a brilliant deep amber with a frothy khaki head that dissipates into a lingering layer of foam with sheets of lacing.

Toasted, nutty malt, hints of malt fruitiness, soft chocolate, and caramel form the aroma. Floral hops are subtle.

Toasted, nutty, lightly roasted malt dominates the flavor, with a slightly bitter, piney finish rounding out the profile. The fruitiness is muted. Sweet caramel resonates throughout.

Body is smooth and a touch full, with moderate carbonation, fairly spritzy, and light alcohol warmth.

A touch more bitter than I prefer, but good malt character, and a nice warmer. Not overly seasonal in character.
