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.

look: 4.25 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 4

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.

very easy drinking winter warmer, sort of modeling itself on a belgian quad, at least in terms of malt bill and flavor notes, but drinking a whole lot easier. the can says brown sugar, but i don't get a lot of that after the head has settled well enough for me to take a big whiff. i get the vanilla, and i really get the raisins, apparently pureed or something before added to the kettle. all the sugar that should be here is fermented out, this is not at all sweet for what it is, a testament to the yeast, which has cleaned the beer up nicely without imparting a ton of flavor. balance with the additives in taste, but the vanilla is the strongest. fuller bodied but honestly just a bit light for the style. like that we have a winter warmer here without all the usual spice accompaniment. i would buy this, great use of raisins too

Produced a finger, and a half of beige head. Beer color is a dark mahogany, (just about translucent).

Smell is of dark fruit, biscuit, brown sugar. Nice, would be nicer if it was a bit stronger.

Taste is similar, but with some added dark chocolate taste, and light hop bitterness. Medium mouth-feel, and carbonation.

Good seasonal!
