This beer poured a golden orange color which seemed to glow, it was crystal clear and well carbonated. The head that was produced was tight and compact, off white /cream in color and about 1 1/2 inches thick and well lasting. There was a nice sheety lace left behind that lasted to the end of the glass. The aromas were not as strong as I would have thought and liked, but noticable and pleasing, I nosed lots of rich and sweet malts, spices and some light hops. The tastes were more pronounced, ton of mixing malts and spices, from sweet malts to rich malts and defined spices, caramels, and some notes of dark fruit (as it warmed), hints of hops (mostly a spicey hop, but slight floral became noticable as it warmed) swirled in and out near the middle and end of the swallow and turned to a dry hop flavor as a last taste down the throat. Some malty aftertaste and dry hops were left. The body was light medium, not as thick compared to others of this style I have had. Drinkable and worth a try every year.
