[Suggested Glassware: Lager Glass]
The pour was a clear burnt copper with an average (1-2 finger) off white fluffy head that dissipated at a normal pace, down to a thin film with a small collar and had very good sticky lacing.
The aroma was of a toasted biscuit malt, light herbal hops and an earthy yeast with notes of caramel, dark fruit (raisons and plums) and a lightly mild spiciness.
The taste was lightly sweet and malty with a hint of caramel from the onset, becoming slightly bitter sweet and a tad acidic with a touch of dark fruit and a light spicy alcohol tinge at the end. The flavor lasted an average time proceeding the swallow with a slightly bitter spicy taste left lying on the taste buds.
Mouthfeel was just under medium in body with a thin dry texture and a medium carbonation.
Overall this brew was a nice change from a lot of winter beers, possessing good malty backbone, a nice sweet fruitiness and just a smidgen of spice, giving it a really good drinkability...

4.36/5 rDev +11.5%
look: 4.25 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.25
Appearance: pours a healthy 2" sudsy cream colored head. Recedes slowly leaving decent lacing. Color is deep amber, slightly cloudy, with moderate carbonation.
Aroma: strong malt presence with raisins, caramel, and whole wheat bread. A bit of earthy hops in the background.
Mouthfeel: standard fluffy English ale mouthfeel, fairly light bodied with a somewhat dry finish. Flavor: a hearty brew. The malt dominates (as expected) with those raisin, caramel, and whole wheat bread (toasted) flavors leading the way. There is also a moderate hop presence in the middle and finish and a bit of lingering alcohol burn with the swallow. Delicious and well made ale.
