look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

On tap at Melt Bar & Grilled. Poured into a pint glass.

A - Pours a deep orange amber color with some deep red tones as well. Arrives to me with a nice one finger head that has great retention. Leaves good lacing and develops a nice cap that stays throughout the whole beer.

S - I was expecting a super spicy beer like most Winter Warmers / Ales are but this one suprised me and isn't so much like the norm. I do pick up notes of allspice and clove but predominantly I'm getting lots of malts and hops. Citrusy hops at that which add a nice freshness to the beer. Some yeast also lingers in the nose as well.

T - Taste is pretty much the same as the nose turned out to be. The hops are very forward and hit you first as well as a bit of that allspice but following that is all sweet malts. Carmel and toffee mainly.

M - Mouthfeel is a bit soapy and perhaps a tad oily. The beer has good carbonation as well.

D - All around a interesting Winter Ale. Southern Tier did this one right and steered away from the norm. Good spice still but hops and malts really steal the show.

Serving type: on-tap
