This beer pours a deep amber color. A small white head appears upon pouring and quickly disappears.

I don't have the most discriminate taste or smell, but the smell has an obvious aroma of spices. This blend of spices reminds me of winter. The spices do have a somewhat sour and nutty smell to them.

The taste of this beer reminds me even more of winter. To me, the taste is similar to that of an octoberfest, but the spices are much more noticeable. Once again, I can't put my finger on the exact spices in this, since I don't go around tasting random spices all day. But, I know the spices they use in this beer go very well in it, and that it gives it that winter flavor that makes this the perfect winter beer.
