Smells like salt water taffy. From the first sip, the booze ain't hiding from nobody. Usually this overt booziness tastes harsh, but it's pleasant here. Medium creamy mouth, like it's been whipped but is still runny. A little piney, some vanilla and toffee, all the while accompanied by booze. I don't get much, if any, spices.
I feel like I've written a fairly average sounding review without meaning to. There's nothing particularly outstanding about this beer, but it impresses me with each sip.
Here in Washington, it's a few bucks more than most winter warmers, but it's also the best one around.

Clear copper-colored brew in the Ciney snifter with plenty of suds in the mouth, but short-lived head in the glass. Aroma of herbal hops. Rich, rather sweet concoction with a spicy edge and an insistent malted milk taste. The flavor of slightly burnt raisin toast comes to mind.

This stuff just stays sweet from start to finish. It's a pleasant grainy, malty brew with an over-abundance of caramel. Some bitterish hops emerge for the finish. Rather leafy and a little dank for a winter brew. I had a Sierra Nevada Celebration on tap yesterday, which sets a better standard with more aromatic hops and less sugar.

From the 22 oz bottle purchased at Wine World and Spirits in north Seattle.

A - Pours a dark cloudy amber - not quite brown - with a disappointingly thin, almost-white head.

S - Sweet malts, a little caramel and chocolate, booze. A little dark fruitiness. Simple but pleasant.

T - Very sweet up front and on the way down. Caramel, brown sugar, toffee and a little chocolate, much like the nose. A small hop bite comes through towards the end. The aftertaste starts out fairly malty and slightly metallic, almost like a lager, eventually leaving a little bitterness.

M - A little too flat and syrupy for my liking.

O - A very sweet, pleasant enough Christmas ale. A little one dimensional. Nice, but nothing special.

12oz into my trusty tulip. Pours a clear amber w/ a frothy beige head some decent lacing.

Aroma is caramel and toffee, brown sugar and some floral hops in the back. Barleywine-ish.

Taste is nicely warm and round. Plenty of malt with some bright spiciness and a clean bitter finish. Falls somewhere between a session barleywine and an imperial amber ale. Drinkable.

Mouthfeel is medium-bodied and balanced. Good carbonation.

Overall a decent winter warmer, perhaps lacking in the complexity department but enjoyable enough for a cold November evening.
