4/5 rDev +10.8%
Had on tap at their tasting room. Poured into a tulip
Appearance: 1/2 inch head, high carbonation, amber in color, clear
Smell: toasted malt and cinnamon
Taste: toasted malt, slight berry, and cinnamon and other holiday spices
Mouthfeel: medium-heavy body, sweet with slight earthy bitterness, moderate-high carbonation
Overall: Nice to see Two Roads can do a malty big beer well. This was easily the maltiest of their offerings to date. A nice and complex holiday sipper. I will certainly get this again if it is on tap when I am in town.

3.2/5 rDev -11.4%
Burnished copper colored with a rocky beige head of firm foam that slowly recedes. Low aroma of clovey yeastiness. Subtle toasted malt flavor, some bready notes, semi-sweet, clove and yeastiness. A peppery bite lingers. Mouthfeel is a bit watery. Okay beer overall, could use a bit more depth of flavor.

3.76/5 rDev +4.2%
On-tap 11/20/2013 at Doherty’s Ale House, in Warwick, RI served in a tapered mug glass.
A: The beer is a deep coppery red color, with a large foamy off-white head that fades slowly and leaves a thick lace on the glass.
S: The aroma is faint but contains Belgian yeast, caramelized malts, some spice and some dark fruit.
T: The taste starts out with mildly sweet flavors of caramel and dark fruit. Then some breadiness comes in from Belgian yeast and a hearty but not too heavy malt character. The hops presence is very mild but complementary and brings a good balance. The after-taste is slightly sweet.
M: Crisp and smooth, medium body, medium carbonation, finish is slightly sticky.
O: Tasty, goes down easily, not to filling, good kick, good Americanized representation of style, this is a solid beer to drink for a while if you’re in the mood for the style.
