4.08/5 rDev +3.8%
750ml bottle on 18 April 2014
Bear with me as this is my first written review.
A- Deep red hues, mahogany up to the light. Mix of bubbles big and tight with average lacing.
S- Rasins, figs more raisins and figs. Just a dark fruit explosion.
T- The rasins, figs and honey flavor really stand out on this beer. I can't pick up on the Rosemary but I have been sitting on this beer for about a year so it may have faded. Considering the sweetness of it the carbonation dries out the finish some. Overall a sweet beer for the taste.
O- A damn nice beer. I am glad I gave it some time as I couldn't taste any alcohol at 10%. Depending on your pallet it may be too sweet, but I like the style along with hop bombs.

3.6/5 rDev -8.4%
Dark coffee colored with red hues in it and a tan head. Fruity aroma i was getting cherry/ plum/ raisin. Same fruity start that transitions quickly to some hot alcohol notes.
The alcohol is almost drying on the tongue giving the beer a drier finish than most beers this dark. Its kinda weird but after a few sips the alcohol notes kinda dissipate and the malts come forward a little more as well as that Belgian yeast kinda flavor. I could even pick up some notes of chocolate/ coffee but its very faint. I think I would enjoy a little more intense coffee/ chocolate flavor from this beer ( a little but not a lot). There is suppose to be rosemary but I could not pick that up.

750ml Bottle from the Palm Desert CA Total Wine for $12
Appearance – Brown colour with an above average size fizzy beige coloured head. The head lasted for 5 minutes before it was gone.
Smell – Malts, grapes/raisins, plums, herbal notes
Taste & Mouth - There is an above average amount of carbonation and I can taste malts, caramel, and some yeast. There is also some honey, dark fruit, and a anise/herbal/molasses like flavour.
Overall – A good beer but a little too herbal and sweet for me. Another fine beer from this brewer though, I just would buy something different next time.

2012 bottle, opened Feb 2014
A - Great looking beer. Deep mahogany body with pomegranet highlights. Khaki head has mixed bubbles, nice retention and ok lace.
S - Nice nose too. Milk chocolate, molasses, gingerbread, star anise, nutmeg, toasted coriander, light coffee, barley, oaky booze and caramel.
T - Complex and surprising. Raisin, caramel cordial, anise, gingerbread, thyme, pink peppercorns, molasses, pumpernickel bread.
M - Medium body. Nice dry, spicy finish.
O - Not a winter warmer, but this is what I wish all winter warmers tasted like. Complex, warm, smooth, and delicious.
