Saw this bottle around last season, but missed out. Then my wife picked me up some this year as a surprise gift.

A- Dark brown, sort of a mahogany color. The head is a tan tightly bubble head.

S- Smells good, kinda malty with a good spice note.

T- This is tasty, winter brew. I like the maltyness and spices that are playing there. There is a hop taste that is a bit bitter but doesn't seem to fit with the other tastes of the beer. I like the hop presence in this beer, but this is a bitterness that shouldn't be there.

M- Good feel, could use a touch more carbination.

D- Very drinkable, and tasty.

Served in straight pint glass. Poured a clear, clean deep ruby color with over an inch of khaki colored head that had medium retention and left very good lacing.

Predominately malt aroma with some hop spicieness. A full taste rolls over the tongue, mostly lightly sweet malt with just enough hops for a nice balance.

The body is very good, full without being heavy or sticky. The drinkability is very good as well, but I struggle having more than 3 in a row.

Overall, a better than solid beer that's worth your time.
