Crystal clear reddish brown with a nice off white head. Very nice. The aroma isn't overwhelming but there's a nice bit of malt. It's a mighty tasty beverage with a great balance of hop, spice and malt. The mouthfeel is nice a bit heavy for more than a couple but over all a wonderful beer.

Had it on tap at Crossroads in East Northport, NY; pours clear red with a small tannish head that faded quickly and left minimal lacing.
Smells and tastes of malt, brown sugar, allspice, coriander, roasted grains, caramel and light yeast; overall spicy and malty with a hint of floral hops.
Mouthfeel is average with a medium body, average carbonation and an almost dry finish that is spicy and malty sweet like a blast of caramel.
Overall it was a nice winter beer that did not have the excessive spices that ruin some winter ales; good, but not one I'd seek out or have more than one in a session as this style is one I seem to only have because it’s winter and it’s there.
Serving type: on-tap
