Smooth and easy to drink without a bunch spices up your nose. If I could get this local, I'd have more, 1 bottle wasn't enough.

A: A warm but hazy, tawdry toffee. Off white head. Festive in general.

S: Touch of sweet chocolate, toffee, warm toasted biscuit. Some spearmint and pine. Not many seazonal spice notes.

M: Grainy and dry. Light in feel and semi-crisp body.

T: When I think winter beer, I generally think Christmas. This doesn't really remind me of either. Heavily toasted in flavor masks nuances of spicing. Toffee and some hop bitterness; pine mostly.

On tap at The Milton upper East Side in Manhattan. I love Brown Ales and this one is right up there. More of a dark amber color with the dryness of a brown. Not too sweet with mild effervescence.

Pours a nice hazel brown with a fizzy head that is an off white. The smell is sweet with bits of honey along with the malt coming through on the nose. The taste is also sweet with hints of toffee and walnuts making for a warming and pleasant beer.

it says here that this beer is retired, but I'm enjoying one that says it was bottled 11/03/2014 - pours a nice caramel brown with a 2 finger head - mildly spiced - easy drinking - a good brew for this rainy November afternoon -
