4.1/5  rDev -3.5%
look: 4.25 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4

Poured from a bottle into a standard pint.

A=Rich brown with a tint of yellowish orange...eggshell colored head was 2+" and lasted over a minutes.

S=Caramel with a hint of molasses.

T=Cinnamon taste is predominant...ginger and or nutmeg also present...very similar to a pumpkin beer, but much more natural tasting.

M-Rather smooth with light carbonation.

O=A very unique and surprisingly good beer...will likely buy again, especially when the Copps opens in my neighborhood next year and if available as part of their mix six.

Serving type: bottle

Darn. The second review. Oh well.

This is a dark brown that shows ruby red with light behind it. The thick, long-lasting tan head left some good lacing on the flared tulip glass into which I poured it.

The aroma is malty with distinct caramel and spice, very little hops.

The taste is lightly sweet with caramel leaning toward a burnt sugar. The spices are subdued and there's an undercurrent of wine or port that carries it through to the end of the medium long finish.

This is a medium bodied brew with a chewy mouth appeal. Very substantial but not too filling. Another would have been nice.

This is the sort of thing I really enjoy in the Winter Welcome style, a good strong ale with lots of flavors going on and little or not hoppy bitterness. The malts and spices are expertly balanced. I'll be getting this one again.
