On tap at the Tap and Mallet in Rochester, NY.

Pours a very dark brown, almost black, with a small quarter inch head and no lacing.

Smells like cinnamon, clove, brandy, nutmeg, and allspice. Very Christmasy!

The taste is similar. The spicing on this is done very well. Cinnamon, clove, nutmeg, pine, nutmeg, and allspice, with some caramel and toffee malts, all buttressed by some warming and delicious brandy. Not much barrel character beyond the brandy flavor, but it integrates really well into the base beer.

Medium bodied, but slightly thin for a BA Winter Warmer. Nonetheless, this goes down very easily, and is quite drinkable. Low carbonation.

The more I've had from them lately, the more Dark Horse is becoming one of my favorite breweries.
