Look: Pours a medium brown color with a big fluffy head.

Smell: Smell of roasty malts, coffee, caramel, bread, and some spices. The more I drink it, the more caramel becomes dominant in the aroma.

Taste: Roasted malts, caramel, cinnamon. It just has a very roasted flavor.

Feel: Medium bodied, medium carbonation.

Overall: I didn't realize this was a brown ale until I poured it. The dark color took me by surprise. I like brown ale's. It has very good overall flavors and aroma's. above average I'd say. Good beer. I'd buy again.

look: 4.5 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.25

Draught poured into a standard pint glass:

Appearance: This is a lustrous, dark, almost opaque beer with a one-finger off-white head that quickly dissipates into fine lacing along the rim of the glass.

Smell: Very faint berry scent, almost imperceptible.

Taste: Mild citrus with a slight carbonated bite to it on the end.

Mouthfell: Light to medium body, moderate carbonation, tickling the tongue very slightly. not bad.

Overall: This is a pretty solid winter ale, and I liked the dark lustrous nature of it, as well as the pleasing, but not overpowering, berry flavors. It settled well on the tongue, and I would definitely get it again, especially on tap.

12/18/13 On tap at Rattle n Hum, NYC. Very nice. Lighter than I expected for a winter seasonal but really sessionable. Light spices, light sweet & barely perceptible hops/bitter.
