This is a beautiful looking beer. Deep ruby caramel, I expected a mouth-filling drink. I don't think this beer has enough body for a winter brew, however - it felt too thin. The smell is spicy, almost exotic - again, something I would normally associate with warmer times. This is completely personal preference, of course! Maltiness is quite apparent - my mouth is still feeling dried out by it as we speak! I'd prefer if the slight hoppiness of this brew were more balanced with some comfortable sweetness; the malty feel seems to call for that. At any rate, it's pleasant enough, but I don't think it's one I'll go back to too often.
