Poured this brew from a 12 oz bottle into my tulip glass. A dense, foamy head exudes hops, cocoa and spices. The first sip is a huge surprise, as it tastes like a combination of a brown IPA mixed with an old style black ale. Of all of the winter warmers I've tried, this would have to be my favorite. The smell and taste alone vault this beer into the above average category, and the added touches of spicy carbonation and a non-invasive head push it even higher in my book. I reserve my 5 star ratings for the best of the best (quality quads, trippels and imperial stouts) but as far as ordinary beer goes... this is a REAL winner.
