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.

Dark brown pour with 1-finger tan head. Light lace and light retention. Nice color.

Nose is light spice and caramel/molasses. Spice is understated, with the caramel dominating.

Taste is stronger caramel, a faint whiff of molasses, and nutmeg/cinnamon mix. Hops are lacking. Roast malt component in the finish.

Grainy, earthy feel. Very thick, without overpowering. Slightly oily. A bit unfinished, but not disappointing.

Overall, worth a shot but not one to go out of the way for.

The aroma brings a subtle spiciness on top of a base of deep caramel and nougat. Can't really smell any hops, perhaps they just blend with the spice potpourri that I am picking up.

Clear, though dark brown in color and topped with a nice off-white head that quickly dissipates.

Brown sugar and molasses dominate the flavor profile here. None of those spices present in the aroma are detected at all. A bit disappointing, but it's not bad at all.

Carbonation is on the high side and the body is medium to medium-full. It's quite drinkable at 7.7%

Poured from the bottle into a standard pint glass.

Appearance: Pours an opaque dark brown/mahogany with a finger of tan head that fades rather quickly to a ring around the edge of the glass.

Smell: Malty and a bit sweet with some dark fruit. Not a whole lot going on here.

Taste: A bit more interesting than the smell. Malty with some dark fruit and hints of molasses. It is possible that there are some spices, but they are in the background. There is some mild roast and alcohol in the finish along with a touch of bitterness.

Mouthfeel: The body is just on the thick side of medium with mild carbonation and a finish that is a bit slick.

Overall: This is a fairly mediocre winter warmer. At least it tasted better than it smelled. Probably going to pass on this in the future.
