really nicely balanced, slightly sweet with cherry like malt. a little spice like a winter warmer. definitely a good winter beer and not cloying, or overly sweet, spicy or anything. not all that nutmeg cinnamon nonsense. considered an Old Ale. not really that hoppy like an American old ale. maybe more like an English old ale? not really sure

look: 4 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4

Twelve ounce bottle into a snifter.

Thin creamy oatmeal head. Trickling carbonation. Thin lacing that settles above the body. Dark brown beer with amber hues. 4

Malt heavy and reminiscent of an amber ale. Toffee and earthy hops. Sweetness prevails. Not particularly explosive with the aromas, but it's good. 3.75

Toffee heavy and sweet with biscuits and grass, earthy hop flavors. Caramel and vanilla are subtler but round the flavor out. 4

Pretty heavy on the carbonation, but smooth creaminess does a good job of offsetting it. Medium bitterness, dryer finish but no trace of alcohol burn. 4.25

Very good winter beer. I feel like it takes the Samuel Smith brew and keys in everywhere that needs to be keyed in until they got an even better beer. Well done.
