A- Very dark garnet, with a bigger than one finger tan head. Retention is pretty good. Almost no signs of lacing.
S- Smell is vanilla, a bit of raisin and a bit of sweetness. Even as it warms, I find it to be mild, but pleasant, on the nose
T- First taste is a bit of dark liquor (rum raisin like), a big kick of vanilla. Sweetness hits the tongue and lasts till the finish. The finish has just a hint of roasty/chocolatey flavor to it.
M- Not quite enough body to it for the style. Carbonation is light, fairly smooth. Finish is somewhat long.
O- Other than the somewhat weak mouthfeel, I really liked this one. Good, complex flavors and a good winter beer.

Dark lacy concoction. Reddish hue. Light tan head persists.
Aroma of dark fruits as raisins. No hop aroma.
Rich complex malts, chocolate and vanilla dominates but loaded with cherry, brown sugar flavors too. Orange or citrus is present. Some hop bitterness way in the finish. Balanced to the malt, there are plenty of hop flavors and appropriate bitterness for a winter warmer, american style.
A little thin but clean fermentation and intense malt complexity leave palate fully satisfied.
Overall, this complex winter ale is unusual and satisfying. A little more body for a fuller mouthfeel would be a plus or just drive a little more gravity from base malt and get more warmth AND body. But this beer does not disappoint and it's unusual character and wonderful balance make this an awesome beer.

Pours near pitch black, half finger of deep tan head, nice lacing
Smell is vanilla, deep chocolate, roasted matls and not much else
Taste is deep chocolate, dark fruit raison and plum, vanilla, cherry notes, toffee and caramel, finishes with more chocolate taste
Mouthfeel is medium light, a little heavy on the carbonation, could use some more body
Good beer, would be a nice change of pace beer. Interesting blend of a lot of flavors, really lacks in the body department though.
