12 oz. bottle.
Slightly hazy ruddy copper body. Slim finger of gauzy, sticky, cobwebby, dirty beige head. Some lacing. Sugary malts with fruity notes of plum and Concord grape. A little bitter molasses edge. Fruit cake-y with subtle spices (allspice and ginger?).
Caramel, slightly toasted malt up front. Plum and grape fruitiness fill up the palate. Tannic, bitter edge picks up mid-way through. Faint spice notes, but the herbal, woody bitterness is too strong for it. Dryer in the finish, thanks to the bitterness. Some lingering fruit malt sweetness. Not bad, but a little harsh on the bitterness. Medium bodied with a creamy feel.

Pours a deep copper color with a huge beige head that persists forever leaving moderate lacing on the glass. Hints of caramel and bready malt mix with earthy spicy hops make up the aroma. A slight mineral edge rounds out the nose. The flavor is toffee and caramel with bread mineral water and earthy spicy hops providing some bit of balance. Medium body with a moderate level of carbonation and a sweet slick mouthfeel. Not a bad beer, I could see myself drinking these.

A: Pours an amber color with a fingers worth of off-white head
S: Caramel and malts stick out the most, with a touch of fruitiness and brown bread
T: Follows the nose, sweet caramel and brown bread along with a hint of dark fruit from the hops. Fairly simple
M: Medium bodied with moderate carbonation. Exceptionally smooth
O: A nice little winter warmer with no spices. Nice and easy to drink as well. Good price point, solid beer

Poured on-tap and served in a tumbler pint, the beer is a bright, slightly hazy, amber-brown coloring with a sparse white surface coating. Aromas of roasted toffee, gingerbread, and some old world fruit sweetness. Flavors are initially light, with fig and date sweetness blending with a light roasting and some warming spices. Smooth and mid-bodied, this leads to a sweet and roasty aftertaste. The finish is almost cloying, but remains light enough to avoid overpowering. Tasty brew.

Beer of the month.
The beer is coppery or orange-amber in color, depending on the light. A light tan 3-finger head dissipated quickly leaving a bit of lacing. No carbonation buttles are apparent.
The smell is of toasted malts with lemony spice and other fruity aromas. The citrus is just on the overripe side.
Caramelly toasted malts make their presence known upfront, but are largely wiped out by a fast rising and long lasting bitterness accented by some light spiciness. The second glass exhibits some metallic flavor after a hard pour, but soon settles down.
The medium-bodied mouthfeel borders on medium-full. There's a bit of bite on the tongue, though I never saw a single carbonation bubble. Occasionally, there's also some warmth in the throat.
This is a decent beer. Not spectacular, but not disappointing either. I would have no complaints if I happened to encounter it again.
