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

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.

Serving type: on-tap

22oz. bottle: This one pours a clear, coppery amber color. There was a small off white head that didn’t leave much lacing. The nose is good. A bit spicy: nutmeg and cinnamon, clove, faint malts. The flavor is quite good. A but bready and malty, with some of the spices in there. A faint earthiness to it. I’ll be looking for this again next year.

3.2/5  rDev -11.6%
look: 3.25 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3.25

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.
