High gravity, not as dark as most winter warmers I've had, not boozy at all and well balanced.

2013 vintage 750 ml bottle, poured into a goblet

Appearance: Pours a gorgeous, deep, dark, mahogany color, speckled with a few reddish highlights and a full two fingers of oatmeal-colored hand that dissolved into a thin lacing of foam that completely covered the top of the beer.

Aroma: Great!! Very aromatic!! Lots of toasted malt and dried fruit, such as raisins, prunes, plumbs, and figs. There’s quite a pronounced sweetness on the nose too, brown sugar, toffee, vanilla and cinnamon.

Taste: Spectacular!! Strong malt flavors up front, followed by tons of dried fruit, such as raisins, prunes, plumbs, and figs. Next comes some brown sugar and toffee-like sweetness, finished by some hops. Absolutely delicious!

Mouthfeel: Chewy and smooth, as there is no carbonation what-so-ever. With an ABV of 11%, there is a significant amount of alcohol on the palate, which imparts a pleasant warmth.

Overall: Goddamn, this is a spectacular beer!! Awesome flavors of malt, fruit, and sweetness all wrapped up in an absolutely spectacular beer!!

Too boozy, some caramel, not much spice and rather malty.

Pours a clear light brown, more dark copper color with off-white head. Dark fruits, caramel, biscuit, and toffee on the nose; follows onto the palate. Finishes with some warmth and spice.
