look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4
Appearance: Poured from a 12 oz bottle into a tulip glass. Red with a slight golden hue with a sticky and siff off white head on top. Decent retention but nothing spectacular.
Smell: Sweet malty nose wtih gobs of toffee and a touch of toast. The smell is rich and inviting with a thick bready quality to it.
Taste and Feel: Sweet opening with a chewy malt character. Light toffee, caramel, toast and a smattering of esters. The middle is slightly sour and dry but tasty and comfortable. White peppercorns and a bit of butteriness. The sweetness carries nicely through the whole beer while never approaching any cloying. Medium body and crisp. As it warms more of the spice flavors develop. Nutmeg, allspice, and clove.
Drinkability: Well balanced and very pleasant. Clean maltiness balanced with spicy flavors make this a very tasty and enjoyable beer.
Serving type: bottle
