3.48/5 rDev -10.5%
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.

4.56/5 rDev +17.2%
look: 5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.75 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.75
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.
Serving type: on-tap
