Ol' Breck pours a murky amber into the Maredsous tulip glass, thin ivory head pops up and quickly dies. The label notes 7.4%, but I didn't find any burn, nicely hidden.
Not much in the aroma, just some subtle notes of caramel mixed with a malt backbone - it's missing any spice or hops. Thin body doesn't get any points either.
Again in the quaff, lite hints of chocolate, cinnamon and malt - more along the lines of a holiday brown ale than winter warmer. Ya know, a fairly tasty brew but not in the ballpark of a spicy winter brew.
