Poured from a bottle into a nonic pint.

A - Pours a slightly hazy light copper hue, with an uneven, two-finger, eggshell colored head. Ringlets of sticky lacing. Good retention, as there was a light head down to the last sip.

S - Medium strength aroma of caramel, hop oils, fresh baked bread, and a hint of raspberry.

T - Caramel malt forward, but definitely enough piney hop presence to be noticeable. A few winter spice notes of cinnamon and all-spice. Hint of raspberry in the nose is also present in the finish.

M - Medium bodied with prickly carbonation. Slightly dry finish leaves you wanting another sip. Nice.

O - A nice take on the style, and I appreciated the hop presence on this one as opposed to strictly a malt/caramel bomb. Yeah, I could definitely do more of these.

Lightly chilled 12 oz. bottle into a 33 cl snifter. Best-by date 2.5.14. Thanks to Kurt for flying this back from MI.

Look- Clear amber-brown with three solid fingers of crackly eggshell head that lingers. Nice curtains, but minimal lace.

Smell- Subtle but appealing. Heavily toasted biscuit is the driver, with a bit of powdery floral character buried behind it. Faint sage and honey as it warms.

Taste- Robust toasted honey biscuit and clean herbal bittering. Almost desert-like, the toasty flavor is well developed and delicious. Finishes clean, more sage and cracker along with an almost chalky spiciness that reminds me of boiled cinnamon.

Mouthfeel- Medium body, moderate carbonation, average feel and cleans itself up pretty well. Not boozy, but feels hefty for 6%.

Overall- Very nice, a winter warmer indeed. Good flavor balance, I'd definitely revisit this one if it were available around here.
