I poured it into a pint glass, not much head at all. just left a ring of bubble around the edges. Coppery-brown color with good clarity.
It smells malty with a hint of nutmeg.
Has that hot alcohol flavor, lots of maltiness, and nutmeg is not overpowering but seems to be the only detectable spice.
It dries the mouth and leaves the alcohol behind.
Not the best example of a winter warmer, but not a bad beer.

12 ounce bottle poured into a pint glass.
Appearance: Pours dark with one finger of light tan foam, not cloudy but not clear. A little carbonation.
Smell: Sweet, apple, floral, malt.
Taste: Light fruity taste with a little bit of malt in the background. Very little hop bitterness.
Mouth Feel: Smooth and medium bodied. Easy to drink.
Over All: An easy drinking beer but I was a bit disappointed as it was not what I expected for a winter warmer. The beer just did not give me a satisfying finish for the style. Not a bad beer but not what I expected.
