look: 4.5 | smell: 2 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Pours a brownish red hue that you can see through when held up to direct light. Two finger white head, spider web lacing. The smell is odd at first. I get a faint unpleasent odor that fades as the beer warms. From then on, just chocolate and vanilla. Possible oxidation? The taste is far better than the smell. I detect hops, chocolate, vanilla, and an over all sweetness. The mouthfeel is medium bodied. A good beer for the holidays. Must try.

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

12 oz bottle to pint glass, brown hue, minimal head of tan color, smells of malt and slightly of hazelnut, taste is malty, through and through, and only slight variations thereof do i detect, mouthfeel is surprisingly fuller- bodied that i expected and overall, not bad, don't know if it is a session beer but definitely one to have/enjoy while you sit back and soak in the holiday season

enjoy!

look: 3 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 2.5 | overall: 3.5

Served in a bottle, drank from the bottle

Explodes with flavors of roasted malt and and hint of caramel. Alcohol content of 8.3% but tastes like a 6.0%, high drinkability. Emanates a sense of comfort until the end.

One Con: mouthfeel is a little lacking, almost coats the mouth with a type of waxy feel, like eating a handful of sprinkles with ice cream.

Recommendation: Get one
