The head fades quick in my Sammy Smith nonic but there's quite a bit of lacing. A very reddish brown which certainly goes with the cinnamon notes which echo through the nose and the flavor. The alcohol is present on the nose, a warning in this festival beer, but it's cotton candy and cranberry which shine through. This could definitely use a little more malt to hide the burn although the sourness of the cranberries complements it nicely. There's a pleasant malty sweetness in the finish which keeps me coming back. It's an eye opener!

Poured a thin head on a hazy, dark straw colored body.
The aroma is caramel, spices and toffee. It's nice.
The taste is caramel sweet overall, mild pine bitterness around the edges and a little alcohol heat.
The texture is crisp with moderate carbonation.
A nicely flavored winter ale.
