A: The beer is clear amber to brown in color and has a moderate amount of visible carbonation. It poured with a finger high dense beige colored head that has good retention properties and consistently left a thin head covering the surface and lacy dots, rings and zig zags of bubbles on the edges of the glass, which reminded me of patterns of frost on a window.
S: Light aromas of spices are present in the nose - ginger and nutmeg seem to stand out in particular.
T: The taste is dominated by spicy flavors, but these aren't overpowering. Flavors of ginger linger through the finish. A very slight amount of bitterness is present.
M: It feels medium-bodied and a little dry (from the spices) on the palate with a moderate amount of carbonation.
O: This is a winter warmer that is not too difficult to drink, possibly since it uses ginger in lieu of other stronger spices.

Poured from a 12oz. bottle into a standard pint glass.
Cloudy brown in color, with a nice, two-inch cap of light tan foam.
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.

Slightly surprised with the amount of hops for a winter beer and being as dark and roasty as it is on the nose. Its a nice beer all around, not a ton of complexity although the mix of caramel in the malt and the bitterness in the hops does make for a nice combination it was just a little short on the complexity side.
Serving type: on-tap
