look: 4 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75

Dark bronze color. Ivory colored head with good retention and a few lace spots.

Spicy, malty, nutty aroma.

Mildly roasted malt character suggesting almonds and toast. Hint of caramel. Subtle nutmeg spice. Herbal hop. Well balanced.

Medium bodied. Sharp carbonation. Smooth feel and dry finish.

Good winter ale. I like how the spices are not overpowered.

look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3.5

Undated 12 oz bottle served in a snifter.
Pour is medium red-brown, clear, with a tan head that soon settles to a partial coat but continues to leave a nice coat of lacing on the glass with each tilt.
Feel: near medium body seems too thin. Medium+ carbonation seems a bit too high.
Initially appealing aroma declined with warming. Surprisingly, some similarity to a Belgian dubbel but not the same. Rather nutty for one thing. More hops too.

O: a bit too weak and too thin for a Winter warmer.
