2.8/5  rDev -23.1%
look: 3.5 | smell: 2.5 | taste: 2.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 3

Bottle purchased at the famous Eatily in NYC.

Icky sweet smell in my Sam Adam's glass. Nice color, chestnut red?

Sweet like belgian candy, the residual sugar is unexpectedly intense. Has a nice bitter orange residual that creeps up on me. Very muted and long lasting.
No idea why some one would have this for a dessert, it isn't that good. Has a funk about it between sweet and a pleasant natural bitterness.

Painful to think I spent an irrational amount of money on this beer thinking it's worthy of an imaginary fireside while I could have had other food products around me.

3.84/5  rDev +5.5%
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.

3.69/5  rDev +1.4%
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.
