3.49/5  rDev -1.4%
look: 3.25 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

- Born on 10-16-13. Consumed 2-15-14.

A: Soft cola pour produces a weakly holding and quickly dissipating khaki head. No apparent lacing. Ordinary in appearence.

S: Nose was spicy rootbeer, cola, cinnamon, with a lightly dry munich and worty sweetness balanced with an earthy soft coffee ground roast fade.

T: Flavor was fresh roasty coffee grounds, cola-cinnamon spicing, with an earthy bitterness on the close. Fleshy dark fruit skin, chocolate with a spicy bite of dark sweet fruit (plums). Things conclude with a dark malty coffee touch with a slight hint of evergreen adn barrel woodiness. Some piney needles and black licorice accents.

M: spicy with a bite of of tingling carbonation. Good malty depth.

O: Overall earthy flavor with a sweet nose, mid-range appeal, decent drinkability for a winter warmer, alcohol is well tamed with a variety of spices that are well balanced without being obnoxious.

2.94/5  rDev -16.9%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 2.75 | feel: 2.75 | overall: 3

Appearance is a reddish brown with practically no head. The nose has muted notes of malt with some seasonal spices. The flavor profile tastes like a watered-down version of a Belgian Strong Dark. The finish has the same watery quality.

This is the third offering that I have had from Evil Genius and my reviews of them all are similar – thin weak and bland.

3.44/5  rDev -2.8%
look: 3.25 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3 | overall: 3.25

Appearance: Pours a deep brown, almost cola-like. Head dissipates rather quickly.
Smell: Malts predominate- a bit sweet and phenolic with some cherry and a trace hint of nutmeg and other spice.
Taste: Malts again with a burst of cherry come forth. There are certainly notes of spice but these seem to be a bit overwhelmed by the quality of the malt which again is quite sweet. There is a slight bitterness towards the back end of the taste with a mild alcohol warmth.
Mouthfeel: Medium-bodied (perhaps a little light) with a dash of sting from spices.
Overall: a different winter warmer- certainly encompasses all the qualities of a winter warmer.

I had this on tap at the Warwick Hotel served chilled in a pint, review from notes.

The ale is deep brown with light crimson hue with small head of beige with average bead. The smell presents a lot of spice and dark fruit aroma with sublte mint and allspice type earthy notes. The feel has a slight dryness with creamy body and spicy mid feel with mild bitterness in general.

The flavor has a lot of dark maltiness with slight spice up front which seems to increase in the taste as the ale warms with a slight bitter edge perhaps from the cinnamon, clove and allspice as listed on their description, but not overdone, there is a mintiness and caramel in the flavor with but not overly spicy flavor wise. Overall this is fine for what it is a winter beer with spice, but I am not sure why I ordered it in June - I guess part of the Christmas in Summer promotion and for a buck, why not try it?

Serving type: on-tap
