2.86/5  rDev -19.2%
look: 3 | smell: 3 | taste: 2.75 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 2.75

A - Deep amber, hazed, thin head has some retention and little lace.

S/T - Cinnamon spice up front with some warming gingerbread/ ginger snap sweetness.

M - Medium body, medium carbonation, smooth.

O - A little heavy on the cinnamon and spice. Not a great taste lingering around in the finish. Needs some hop character to balance it out.

Serving type: on-tap

3.74/5  rDev +5.6%
look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.75

A: Poured a reddish brown color, clear with a towering light tan head that persists for a few minutes. Lacing looks good on the glass.
S: Smell of prunes, dark cherries, birch, ginger, and faint maple. Earthy hops are minimal.
T: Sweet and tart cherries, prunes, brown bread, light maple, light ginger, and spice. Finish is on the sweet side.
M: medium body with tiny, bubbly carbonation and little to no alcohol warmth.
O: This beer has some interesting flavors and a uniqueness that makes it worth the try. It has a sweet and tart balance going on and the finish is not overwhelmingly sweet.

3.46/5  rDev -2.3%
look: 4.5 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 3.5

12oz brown bottle with no freshness date.

Dark hazed rusty amber, two fingers of froth. Aromas of yeast, spice, toasted grain, syrup, overripe fruit, & taffy. Baked apples, spice, grainy, honey, bread crust, yeasty, kiss of alcohol, quince paste, custard, maples taffy, finishes a little dry.

Flavorful with many of the elements I look for in a spiced winter warmer, not as clean on the palate as anticipated. I guess the Irish Red Ale character is there but the spice and syrup take it far away from the style.
