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.

4.13/5  rDev +13.8%
look: 4 | smell: 3 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5

Appearance: Dark but amber red in the light, little to no head (severed from a glower about an hour after it was opened)

Smell: Buttered Popcorn is the only way I can describe this, intriguing with a slightly roasted feel.

Taste: Starts fresh with a nice hoppy bite, you get a little bit of the honey and heather in the after taste before the hops come back.

Mouthfeel: Again almost buttery in feel, not too thick but thick enough to match the 7% ABV. Deff right on point for what I want a winter warmer to be.

Overall: I wouldn't recommend this as a Winter Warmer honestly. This falls more into the artisan Ale category. The buttery hoppsy flavor is defiantly welcoming but I don't see this as a winter beer. Save it for the spring and you have yourself a winner, nice taste and consistency, chill it to ice cold and enjoy like a lemonade in my opinion.
