look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75

Appearance: Deep ruby, fairly clear, no head/lacing.

Aroma: Rich caramel/toffee, pretty boozy, piney hop character.

Flavor: Hot. Like I honestly would guess this was +12% blind. Big piney hops over a monster specialty malt backbone.

Mouthfeel: Booze gives it a drying, warming sensation.

Couldnt taste any hopps. Was hoping for more from their description. But it was strong and had (warming) qualities. Very bready with strong alcohol. No head, wasnt expecting one. If the hopps came through i would be crazy happy.

Pours a clear, red/brown color. One inch head of an off-white color. Great retention and great lacing. Smells of alcohol, sweet malt, hint of roasted malt, slight yeast, caramel malt, hops, hint of pine, and a hint of wood. Fits the style of an Old Ale. Mouth feel is smooth and crisp, with an average carbonation level. Tastes of sweet malt, yeast, alcohol, hint of roasted malt, slight hops, caramel malt, and a hint of wood. Overall, good appearance, aroma, body, blend, and decent complexity.

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.
