This is a very nice beer, overall. It pours nicely and behaves like I would expect a Sam Adams beer to behave. The head hangs around, the carbonation is steady, and it smells of biscuity caramel malt. There are hints of nutmeg and orange that wrap around the caramel and cola to produce a very pleasant combination.

Copper brown in color with excellent clarity. A fingernail of beige colored foam covers the majority of the top. Light aromas of caramel and dark malt are in the aroma. The flavor is subtle caramel and dark malt. The body is smooth and gentle.

Pours a brown color with a redish tint about two fingers of foam and leaves no lace. Aroma is coriander, orange, and maybe a hint of nutmeg but is not overwhelming with aroma very subtle. Taste is very much like the nose, but bread, some orange and spices. However flavor is subtle as well.

An acceptable Winter bock with a steep price tag.
