3.9/5  rDev +18.2%
look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Poured from a bottle into a tumbler pint, the beer is a dark, vibrant, crystal clear, hazelnut brown coloring with a thin, sparse, filmy surface coating. Aromas of nutmeg, allspice, and cinnamon on a subtle toffee backbone, with some warm cider hints at the end. Lighter on the nose than I was expecting. Flavors are rich and roasted initially, with a tangy toffee malt profile initially, followed by a solid dose of the previously mentioned spices, as well as some peppery hops profiles sprinkled throughout. The liberal spicing definitely provides the warmth in this winter warmer, but without overpowering the brew. Very solid backbone of malt richness to support everything going on on your palate. Tangy and spiced aftertaste that quickly washes away for a clean, slightly tangy finish that lingers longer than the bulk of the aftertaste itself. Smooth and round in mouth, but as it finishes you notice how crisp and clean the brew is. Solid, and at a lower ABV for a warmer, making this easy to quaff.

look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 4

Poured from a 12oz. bottle into a standard pint glass.
Cloudy brown in color, with a nice, two-inch cap of light tan foam.
Aroma-Subtle spices
Taste-Toasted malt, orange, nutmeg, cinnamon, followed by a nice little hop bite. Well-balanced, tasty and refreshing despite the rather high ABV. Very nice.
