Pours a standard light brown with ruby hues at the edges. Cream-colored head reduces to an ivory lace.
Dark lager aromas of roasted malt and caramel, with light cinnamon in the background.
Cool-weather spices (cinnamon, nutmeg, ginger) are present but nicely muted. Big malt presence but enough leafy hops to keep things from getting out of whack. Mouthfeel is as creamy as it wants to be.
For me, this beer is a given every year, especially considering its easy availability (usually appears in my local Kroger around the beginning of November). It's a dependable stalwart in a crowded marketplace of winter seasonals.
