look: 4.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75

12oz bottle into SA Perfect Pint.

A: Pours a slightly lighter than cola brown color with a thick, large, dark tan head that slowly faded into a thick fuzzy film that left sheets of sticky lace down the glass.
S: Cinnamon and toast on the nose, hint of orange and maybe sweet brown sugar and something synthetic.
T: I get notes of cinnamon, nutmeg, coco, and vanilla, leather, with caramel and slight crème brûlée in finish, and toasted malt in the aftertaste. Aftertaste is earthy with a touch of apple juice and figs.
M: Frothy creamy carbonation, medium-full body, sticky mouthfeel. Sweet but not cloying.
O: Not a bad winter warmer for what it is, but probably not something I need to drink again.
