3.48/5 rDev +6.4%
Pours a ruby red, with a thin white head that didnt stick around very long. Smell is of malt, some christmas spiciness (ginger and/or nutmeg). The mouthfeel is pretty thin for the style. The taste is pretty standard for the style, sweet upfront with some ginger/nutmeg spiciness. A decent beer that I was happy to find while driving around Half Moon Bay.

2/5 rDev -38.8%
Appearance - Dark reddish-amber with good transparency; pours with almost no head. Retention is poor.
Smell - Sweet and syrupy - smells like an amateur homebrew. Slightly metallic.
Taste & mouthfeel - Caramelly and metallic with noticeable alcohol. Has a thin malt extract quality to it. Very bitter in the finish, but without any real hop character. Thin and watery mouthfeel. Overall it's a pretty sorry excuse for a winter warmer - grab a Jubelale instead.

Had this beer from a 22oz., at just a little bit cooler than room temperature. This beer overall was fine, but nothing special. It's dark brown in color with little to no head, it had a malty aroma along with a malty flavor, but was lacking in depth beyond the initial flavor, and the mouthfeel was a bit watery. It's pretty drinkable, but I think I would look to try a different beer with a little more going on before getting another one of these.

01/21/05- On tap at the HMB Brewery.
Presentation- 4 oz sampler part of a 2 day 4 sampler binge.
Appearance- Nice off white head, deep amber-brown coloring and nice lacing.
Smell- A sweet fruity smell. Maybe some dates, plums? Dark smelling.
Taste- Roasty, crisp, minor coffee notes with a sweet fruity background. Raisins and figs maybe.
Mouthfeel- Average carbonation, fuller mouthfeel.
Drinkability- Nice winter warmer. I've had many better, but I could go for a pint of this one next holiday season.
