On tap at The Common Table. Glad to have a new beer from Peticolas on tap.

The beer pours a dark brown color with an off-white head. The aroma is full of caramel malt, cinnamon and toffee. A very spicy, wintery smelling beer. The flavor is more of the same. I get a lot of cinnamon and brown sugar notes, as well as some allspice and nutmeg. There is also a good dose of caramel malt. What is absent is the alcohol, which is nearly undetectable. Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation. A very nice winter beer. Probably my favorite so far from Peticolas.

Dark, like a stout. A little light showing through. Tan head - about two fingers.

Malts and sweets!

Graham cracker and cloves. I also get apricots, cinnamon, nutmeg, spices, and predominantly chocolate. Caramel and toffee follows. The heat is almost not there, but it sneaks in at the back.

Mouth is smooth and velvety. Has a thicker body with a buttery slide. Very nice.

This is a wonderful beer! I love winter warmers (when they're well-made). This is a good "double" winter warmer, if you will. The flavors just dance around nicely and the complexity of the beer really stands out.

I had this beer on tap at Good Friend last night. This is a nice spicy winter ale. The aroma of cinnamon and allspice was very pleasant and the taste was not overpowered with the spice which is something I typically can't stand in a spiced winter ale (I had the Harpoon winter ale later that night and it was way overpowering compared to this beer). I felt that it was very well balanced and the high alcohol content was almost imperceptible. I was actually quite surprised when I was told what the ABV was. So far I have not been disappointed in anything Peticolas has done and this is no exception. I was even told that the brewmaster/owner of Peticolas thinks that this may be the best beer that he has brewed to date.

In the nose: Toffee, caramel, touch of ginger. Sweet. Rummy.

Flavor is dryer. Toffee, caramel, toast. Cinnamon, ginger, chai. Nice spices, nice smooth blend.

The alcohol here is smooth and dangerous -- no telling this is 10 percent. Medium body, moderate fizzy carbonation.

Dangerously easy to drink. Tasty, smooth.
