Had this at a Baltimore Local Brews fest at a DC bar. Was excited to try one from one of my favorite cities. Definitely should have picked better.

Appearance: Very dark, almost pitch black. About half an inch of dark brown head. A lot of lacing.

Smell: A bit of coffee, slightly hoppy smell. More porter or stout like than a typical winter warmer, but certainly not bad.

Taste: One of the worst tastes I've ever had in a beer. The front is fine, slightly hoppy, malty with a hint of coffee. The aftertaste is like pure robitussin. It tastes like cough syrup. I had a hard time getting this down.

Mouthfeel: Definitely the way I want my winter warms to feel. Not too thick, very drinkable in terms of feel.

Overall: Really an awful beer. The feel was spot on, but the taste was just terrible. I wouldn't recommend this to anyone. Maybe I got a bad batch?

On draft at Pratt Street Alehouse. Thanks Steve and Derek.

The beer is light brown with a quarter inch of tan head that leaves some good lacing on the snifter. The aroma offers mint, heather, spice, malt, English hops. Well balanced and flavorful with a lasting flavor of hops in the finish. Nice roast character. Similar in some regards to a black IPA. Medium bodied with plenty of carbonation. Overall, fresh and tasty. Recommended.
