3.8/5  rDev -0.8%
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Appearance: It has a nice dark cloudy amber/copper color to it. It has a creamy off-white head that dies down moderately and leaves some lacing.

Smell: The aromas definitly give out hints of citrusy fruit, spices, dark fruit and roasty malts.

Taste: Like the aromas, it has a nice citrusy/fruity character accompanied by some roasted malts and some spices.

Mouthfeel: It has a medium carbonation with a nice overall balance and feel.

Drinkability: It's a smooth drinkable beer accompanied with good flavors and aromas.

Picked up at the brewery and brewed November 24, 2011. Poured a two finger pillowy off white head. The body is semi-clear and deep amber. Decent retention and patchy lacing.

Smell is orange peel, cinnamon, malt,and somewhat herbal.

Taste follows the nose with some nutmeg and grassy hops.

This is a medium bodied brew with a little carbonation. It is relatively smooth although there was a dry bite on the back end leaving a funky aftertaste.

Overall, a very good winter warmer that was not overly complex but very well balanced.
