Went out tonight and picked this up, along with ST's Old Man Winter Ale.
Poured into a clean Duvel Glass - which formed a nice khaki head with little lacing left.
Pours a beautiful dark red/ruby in color
The aroma promotes dark cherry, figs, dark fruit, and clove.
Taste - This where I wasn't sure how this was going to be - Lots of spices to be had here. Lots of clove, cinnamon, orange and nutmeg. A sweetness becomes present after the swallow.
Mouthfeel - medium bodied.
Overall - a nice winter warmer. Not sure if I like it 100%. I could see having 2 of these, but not an entire 6 pack. It has a spicy sweetness that I find with some belgian and scotch ale beers that I'm not terribly fond of, but it's a good winter warmer!
