A nice garnet-amber with an off-white head. Nice carbonation and faint smells of malt and vanilla extract.
Overall, the body is a bit thin and could use some rounding out and perhaps less carbonation. Slight tang in the finish - not as dry and clean as it could be. But in general, it is a relatively decent ale. Nice caramel, malty notes with a strong flavor of vanilla. I can say that I've had this on tap and it tasted a bit better that way. This is perhaps the best beer I've had from A-B, which isn't necessarily saying a whole lot, but it does speak to the big boys' desire to at least try something new.
There are much better winter warmers out there, but if your options are limited, this is a fine choice.
Try with some warm, buttered corn bread.
