Had on draft

A - dark brown body with a thin chestnut head.

S - Milk chocolate, roasted nuts, and toast.

T - Very similar to the nose. Milk chocolate dominates early on, with pecan, smoke, dark fruit, and cinnamon raisin bread emerging later. The palate is left with mild astringency from the roast malts balanced with lactose sweetness.

M - Velvety body buoyed up by a vibrant carbonation.

O - A unique take on a winter warmer. Not the caramel overload other beers in the style can be. The mix of flavors is unique and rewarding. Worth checking out!

I noticed a slight smell of roasted nuts and cocoa beans. This is a malty rather than hoppy beer. However, it does not have the creamy flavor of other malty beers such as Guinness. The aftertaste reminds me of figs, raisins or some other similar dried fruit.

Pours very, very, dark ruby red. Two fingers of tan, creamy head that dissipates slowly, with nice clinging. Sweet aroma, with fruit, some malt overtones, roasty, and chocolate. Moderate mouth feel (not thin, but not thick, either), but satisfying. Smokey, malty taste; the fruit taste is subtle and controlled. Sweetness is evident but not overpowering in the beginning, but becomes a bit cloying by the end. Very mild hop bitterness in the middle. I don't generally go for fruit beers, but this one is nicely balanced. All of the "extra" ingredients (cacao, vanilla, raisins, brown sugar) add subtle and very pleasant taste. This is a good tasting ale, even though as it warms the sweetness becomes a bit too much for me. YMMV.
