This is the third beer I've tried from these guys. Aptly named, a nice flavorful beer that isn't too heavy for the holidays (read: afternoon football drinking). Not a ton of booze, which helps. Can definitely taste the toffee and rye notes. Tastes are reflected in the nose, but again, not too strong. Decent stuff.

Brownish amber in color with a slight head. The foam soon falls back into the glass.

Aroma is good, notes of malt, toffee, and caramel.

Taste is of malt, toffee, caramel, with slight roast finish and a little bit of hops in the ending.

Mouthfeel is medium.

Overall an enjoyable beer. The notes of caramel and toffee and very well suited to the style.
