3.88/5  rDev +2.6%
look: 4.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4

Poured into a Sam Adams glass. Short head that disappears very quick. Minimal lacing with a small ring. Wonderful burgundy color. The scent is malty, toffee and dark fruit. The taste is very similiar to the scent. Malt, caramel and dark fruit. Some spices but nothing jumps out at me. Lots of carbonation at first but it calms down a little. Very well balanced for a winter warmer. Overall a vey good beer.

** I recommend letting this beer warm up a little. It's nowhere near as flavorful cold. Also some the carbonation fades which also makes it more enjoyable.

4.18/5  rDev +10.6%
look: 4.25 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.25

12 oz. bottle poured into tulip glass. Pours a rich dark brown, almost black with ruby undertones. A medium sized tan head that dissipates slowly and leaves a lot of thin lacing.

Smell is heavy in caramel and cocoa, a lot of citrus as well dark fruits, and a faint amount of cinnamon and ginger.

Taste is sweet chocolate, caramel, and toffee malts up front. The spices come through, especially towards the finish which all together makes for a really nice flavor profile front to back as the chocolate remains strong throughout. Mouthfeel is smooth and creamy.

Overall, a really good, balanced winter warmer, always worth having a few each year.
