2/26...tested in a mix a six. Pours dark brown, deep reddish hints with white foam layers. Cinnamon/nutmeg smell, some cherries. Cloves. Taste is light, almost watery, malty sweet spiced back. Light mouthfeel. A touch too sweet though.

Ow no this beer apparently is heavily spiced with anise (licorice)

A - Nice clear amber brown red hue with a 1/2 inch of opaque colored head.
S - Yep from the nose heavy licorice, molasses, and coffee roasts.
T - Not bad the licorice isn't overbearing with mild faint notes of cinnamon. Coffee roasts and sweet molasses too.
M - Kind of light for a winter warmer.

Overall I guess its not terrible just not what I want in a winter warmer.

Pours a dark amber color with a nice amount of fluffy white head. The scent is of toasted malt, bread, and notes of coffee and molasses. The taste is of toasted malt, spices, molasses sweetness, and notes of coffee with a mild hop bitterness. Full body and crisp feel with a clean finish.

12 ounce bottle, poured into a pint glass

Appearance: Pours a very pretty, clear, deep, dark brown color with a quarter of a finger of white head that dissolved into a thin halo of foam that gripped the sides of the glass and formed wispy clouds that partially covered the top of the beer.

Aroma: Very roasty and malty up front, with strong notes of freshly baked dark bread, coffee, molasses and licorice.

Taste: A lot like the aroma. It has lots of roasted malt and coffee flavors, balanced with some brown sugar or dark molasses-like sweetness. The beer finishes with some very assertive spices of star anise or wormwood, imparting a very strong licorice flavor that I don’t like.

Mouthfeel: Medium-bodied to slightly chewy. The beer has hardly any carbonation what-so-ever, and with an ABV of 5.7%, there is no presence of alcohol on the palate.

Overall: This is an interesting beer, with some nice roasted flavors, but there’s too much licorice flavor in it that actually turns me off. If you like licorice, you’ll like this beer, but if you don’t, like I don’t, I recommend that you pass on it.

Pours a dark brown color with an amber hue. White head forms and stays at a small fine layer. Heavily toasted malts are apparent upfront, this seems like it going to be a malty, warming hop bomb.

The taste has loads of toast and burnt caramel sugars, and a light holiday spice that is barely detectable. A touch of allspice and peppercorn/coriander are on the edges but really not too noticeable which is refreshing in a winter brew. This tastes like a solid beer.

Full bodied feel with almost perfectly crisp carbonation. No real hop bite, surprisingly clean and drinkable.

Overall, this is a well put together, simple ale that really reminds me of a true winter warmer. Nice toasted malt character and warming qualities. I could see myself drinking a good bit of this on a chilly night some time.

Did not taste spicey as other winter warmes I had. This one tastes kind of bland
