look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

A- darker than an amber, kinda like a dark Irish red.. clear and retaining about an inch of head. No laceing.

S- now I sound pretentious... Roasted barley, caramel, orange?

T- malty, a little bit of bread or biscut

M- I can feel the alcohol in the end, but overall not bad. Smooth until the end where you have a slight alcohol taste.

O- I think I will buy it again... It should be noted that this beer competes directly with Columbus brewing company winter warmer and great lakes Christmas ale. In Columbus it will be. A close call between this beer and Columbus winter warmer.
