Served on tap in a chalice glass

Appearance – The beer is served deep copper-brown color with a one finger head of off white foam. The head has a moderate level of retention fading slowly to leave some streaky lace on the sides of the glass.

Smell – The aroma is big of a caramel and molasses sweet smell mixed with a darker fruit smell of cherry and raisin. Along with these aromas is a bit of a bready smell as well as a very light spice smells and a bit of vanilla rounding it all out.

Taste – The taste begins with a sweeter and more roasted flavor with a good level of caramel and toffee. Some of the sweeter flavors develop further by darkening in nature, taking on more brown sugar and molasses like flavors. Along with the darkening of sugars, so too comes some darker fruit flavors of a plum and fig nature. A little bit more roasted and chocolate flavor come to the tongue as the flavor moves onto the end. Along with a little bit of an alcohol booziness, the finish of the taste leaves a rather nice warming taste to linger on the tongue.

Mouthfeel – The body of the beer is thick and full with a carbonation level that is rather low. Both are nice for the roasted and sweet flavors of the brew and create a mouth coating feel that baths the tongue in all the flavors.

Overall – A rather tasty winter warmer. A nice flavorful and enjoyable brew and one to try if you have a chance.

From old notes in 2012.

Appearance: pours a dark reddish brown color with a 1" head.

Smell: caramel, chocolate, and a bit of earthy bitterness is mild on the nose.

Taste: slight roasted malt tone with some toffee, molasses, milk chocolate, and a moderate bitterness create a pleasant beer. Alcohol is mildly noticeable.

Mouhtfeel: medium bodied. Lightly crisp to start, smoother at the finish. Long lasting aftertaste.

Overall: a nice beer to slowly sip and enjoy. Not overly exciting, just a solid beer.
