Picked up a six of this at TW before Xmas, had some on Xmas eve and Xmas, saved one to review, let's give it whirl. Popping the top I get a nice deep zesty caramel waft. Pours to a light root beer color with a thin tan head. On the taste this brew has good mouthfeel, thick but not syrup tick. The taste is a consistent slightly spicy, flatly bitter yet with bits of sweet caramel coming through. Not really dominant in one flavor or another, balanced and contrite. Would have expected a little darker a little spicier for a Christmas beer along the lines of a winter warmer, but its imbibeable.
