4.29/5 rDev +10.6%
look: 4 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.5
Poured from a 12 oz. can into an Indeed shaker glass. Canned on 11/03/13.
Appearance: Pours a dark brownish black with a hint of amber. Moderate amount of bubbles and one finger of light tan head that fades into a thin creamy layer. Leaves a decent amount of lacing on the glass.
Smell: A sweet and roasty malt driven aroma with good dark hints of chocolate and dark fruit. Dark roasted malts with hints of cocoa nibs, mild roast coffee, milk, biscuit, grains, toast, caramel, toffee, and yeast. Sweet hints of creamy vanilla and brown sugar. Dark fruit hints of raisins and fig. Mild hints of cinnamon and nutmeg spicing. Hops are very laid back. A pretty good aroma.
Taste: Like the aroma, a sweet and roasty dark malt driven taste with nice notes of chocolate and dark fruit. Upfront dark roasted barley malt with notes of cocoa nibs, coffee roast, caramel, toffee, lactose, cream, toast, biscuit, grains, and yeast. Sweet taste of vanilla and brown sugar. Dark fruit presence with notes of raisins, fig, and plum. Light notes of cinnamon and nutmeg spice. Subtle earthy hop presence in the background. A pretty good taste.
Mouthfeel: Medium bodied with a moderate amount of carbonation. Very creamy, silky, and smooth. Sweet but far from cloying.
Overall: A very good spin on a Winter beer. Its more like a twist on a Milk/Sweet Stout than the typical Winter Warmer. Good creamy chocolate taste with a nice dark fruit undertone.
Serving type: can

3.48/5 rDev -10.3%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3.5
Can: Poured a dark deep brown color ale with a medium size off-white head with limited retention and not much lacing. Aroma of dry raisin and brown sugar with a healthy dose of caramelized sugar is very interesting. Taste is also dominated by a healthy dose of caramelized malt with some dry raisins notes and some light residual brown sugar notes. Body is bit light to sustain all the spices and dry fruits notes with medium carbonation. Interesting beer but seems to be lacking a little bit malt profile.
Serving type: bottle
