Poured a thick creamy head that sat atop for what must have been ten minutes. Deep brown with ruby undertones the color is very nice.
The nose is weak but there are undertones of brewed tea, sweet malt, raisin, ginger and nutmeg.
The taste is kind of toasted, spiced with a touch of sweetness. I found the aroma more complex than the taste but the taste stronger than the nose. Had the two been reversed this may have been a classic but instead it's a decent winter ale.
