look: 3.25 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 4

A: The beer is relatively clear dark red in color and has some brownish hues along with a light amount of visible carbonation. It poured with a short white head that quickly died down, leaving some lacing on the surface and a collar around the edge of the glass.
S: Light aromas of sourness and oak are present in the nose along with hints of vanilla.
T: Much like the smell, the taste has a lot of flavors of toasted oak and vanilla along with a light amount of sourness. I didn't really get much in the way of malts.
M: It feels medium-bodied and a bit tart on the palate with a low amount of carbonation. No warming is perceptible.
O: The sourness and tartness seemed to make this beer resemble a Flanders Red Ale a little more than it did a Winter Warmer. In any event, this beer hides its alcohol remarkably well and is therefore very easy to drink considering its strength.

look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.75

On-tap 12/5/2013 at Track 84, in Warwick, RI served in a tulip glass.

A: The beer is a deep reddish brown color, with a short off-white head that fades slowly and leaves a thick lace on the glass.

S: The aroma is faint but contains caramelized malts, dark fruit, a touch of spice and a touch of hops.

T: The taste starts out sweet with flavors of caramel, fruit and some spice. Then a hearty malt character comes in. The hops presence is mild but brings a decent balance. The after-taste is slightly bready and slightly sweet.

M: Crisp and a little smooth, medium body, medium carbonation, finish is slightly sticky.

O: Tasty, goes down easily, strong kick, not too filling, decent representation of style, this is a solid beer to drink for a while if you’re in the mood for the style.
