Poured on-tap and served in a shaker pint, the beer is a crystal clear, amber-brown coloring, with a fluffy, off-white head. Nose of fig, date, sugar plum, molasses, and candied sugar, with subtle spice notes throughout. Flavors are roasted forward, with a blast of old-world fruit, roasted notes, and subtle nutmeg and cinnamon spice. Bold, full-bodied, with a spiced fig and date sweet blend to make the aftertaste. Smooth, spiced lingering finish. Really good beer.

A: Dark amber color with a lovely tan head. Lacing is also present.

S: I'm not getting so much from the aroma. Maybe some light malt.

T: Damn good. Crisp and fairly light. Caramel and cracker, biscuit, burnt sugar, spice, nutmeg, and woodiness. Very wintery!

M: Medium to light bodied and crisp.

O: Wonderful take on the style. Was actually looking for something a bit heavier but this is pretty damn tasty.

Sampled last night on 10/15/14. Bottle chilled down to 36 degrees in my beer cooler and poured in to a tulip glass.

Pours a pretty dark amber in color with reddish highlights that has a good 1-finger creamy/foamy head that stays around for awhile. A decent amount of lacing is seen with each sip which surprised me also. The aroma is very pleasant and consists of caramel malts, toffee with spice. More going on with the taste that ends with a slight hoppy finish but wasn't bad. Medium bodied with perfect carbonation. Overall a good brew for the colder months.

Clear dark amber pour with an off-white one-finger head. Nice sweet malt aroma. Medium bodied. Taste has flavors of caramel malt, toffee, light spice and earthy hops, which add a really nice balancing bitterness.
