Appearance: Looks more like a porter than a winter ale but the look is good and the black liquid/beige head leaves a few shards behind
Smell: Fruity, with a combination of nectarine and plum along with molasses spice cookies
Taste: Fruit forward, with the nectarine and plum flavors combining with charred malt, up front; molasses cookies build, in the middle; but the finish is somewhat burnt
Mouthfeel: Medium to full body with moderate carbonation
Overall: An interesting winter warmer (here in the middle of the summer); wish there wasn't so much of a charred flavor on the finish

Deep reddish mahogany color with an attractive cap of foam and lots of lacing in the wine tumbler. A light body. Warm and rich malty flavor. Tastes like there is some spice in the mix, but the ingredients list insists on just barley and four hop varieties. In any case, it's an intriguing smooth flavor more enjoyable than the common winter clove bomb.
IBUs are rated at 47, but this brew is just pleasantly spicy with a modestly bitter aftertaste. Some sweetness lingers and kisses the lips with every sip. So much dark roasted flavor. Flavor of Mexican cocoa, and I would swear there is a touch of cinnamon.
One of my favorite winter brews this year for sure. From the 22 oz bottle purchased at Wine World and Spirits in north Seattle.

Pours like a porter with deep dark chocolate color and it's creamy deep beige head,some deep ruby is shown thru when held to the light.Roasted and warming in the nose along with fruity esters and chocolate notes,again alot like a porter.Big roastiness on the palate along with earthy tones,bitter chocolate along with mild fruitiness and sweet alcohol in the finish,I don't get any spice really.To me this is a bigger porter all the way,and a good one.A nice change of pace from the sweet spiced winter warmers.
