3.5/5 rDev -9.1%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5
Served on tap in a 10 oz chalice glass
Appearance- Poured a deep mahogany-brown color with a small off white head. The head faded fast with very little lacing left behind.
Smell – Sweet aromas of dried fruit and molasses mixed with a very light slightly roasty aroma of malt.
Taste – Up front there is a malty flavor with a good dose of sweet sugary flavor . These flavors form a base for the rest of the flavors to end and leave from. Right after the initial flavor a slightly nutty flavor comes to the tongue. This leaves soon after it arrives, allowing for roasty notes to come to the tongue. Toward the end the malty roast and sweet flavors mix with some light spice flavors and an ever so light bitterness. While they are slightly bitter they by no means tame the sweeter flavors of the tongue.
Mouthfeel – The body is on the above average creamy side with the carbonation on the lower side. Good for the sugary and roasty flavors and higher abv of the beer.
Overall – It has some nice flavors and a good blend of sweet and roastiness. A good and drinkable brew but nothing too fantastic.
Serving type: on-tap

4.06/5 rDev +5.5%
look: 3.75 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.25
12oz bottle poured into a pint glass. Bottle cellared for one year.
A: Pours a muddled brown color with lighter burnt Siena hues. Somewhat murky. Khaki colored head settles quickly. Spotty lacing.
S: crust, toast, dark caramel, pinch of cocoa. Very earthy with hop scents of pine, spicy garden herbs, and wet leaves.
T: Caramel. Lots of dark toast and crust. Cocoa and nutty chocolatey tastes build. Pitted fruits, such as dates and plums. Hops are assertive and bring spicy herbal notes, pine, and an overall earthy tone. Flash of citrus. Cocoa, chocolate, and nutty tastes mingle with earthy and oily hops on the long finish.
M: Medium thick body. Rich and creamy with a bit of heft in the mouth. Surprisingly high hop astringency, though it isn't a bother. Comforting alcohol warmth.
O: The assertive hopping was a bit of a surprise, but a welcome one. This beer perfectly fits its winter seasonal role. Rich, robust, and warming. No need to kill a beer like this with spices. A pleasure to sip, and an excellent buy at an approachable price in the six pack. Cellars very well to boot.
