3.23/5 rDev -10.3%
look: 4 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 3 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3.5
12 oz bottle from my Beer of the Every Other Month Club poured into a tulip glass.
A -- Dark amber body, pretty clear. Nice tan head pours about an inch and then settles down. Pillowy. Good lacing.
N -- Smells like a tree. Not a pine tree, but one of those trees from the forest with the snow. A cold tree. Figgy too. A little booze smell. An old smell.
T -- Little boozy. A little sweet. Kind of fruity. That same tree note from the nose is present here too. Spicy on the back end -- didnt expect that. Probably a little too harsh.
M -- Harsh, like I said above. Drinkable. Big gulps are possible if you want them.
O -- Not bad. I would drink this again but it didnt blow me away. Cheers!

Poured from a 12 oz brown bottle into a Samuel Adams Perfect Pint glass. No freshness date evident. Received from Microbrew of the Month shipment courtesy of my sister Tami's generosity.
A: Ruby-brown with 1-finger of beige, foamy head with decent retention but spotty lacing.
S: Mild dark maltiness, some raisin and fig/date, medium and dark caramel crystal malts, and floral and light citrus/pine notes.
T: A very substantial and enjoyable beer -- reminds me of Avery Old Jubilation Ale but a little less old ale-ish. Excellent medium and dark crystal malt caramel notes with a little bit of a rum raisin and date profile. Hopping is pretty hefty but balanced with mostly floral but accents of pine, honeysuckle, and orange/grapefruit citrus. A little bit of yeast ester, nothing too much but a little fruity, and alcohol is well-hidden. Moderately bitter but well-balanced.
M: 10 Barrel does a nice job of keeping this beer smooth and drinkable, body is medium leaning toward medium-full, but it finishes very dry for a beer of its ABV without seeming watery. Carbonation is low-medium which also helps the drinkability.
O: I was very pleasantly surprised by this beer -- not a overspiced winter ale, just a solid higher than average ABV moderately hoppy ale. A really enjoyable beer.
