L - Dark brown. Hard to tell, but appears slightly hazy. Short, light-brown, persistent head.
S - Sweet medium-roasted malt. Coffee, chocolate, and raisin.
T - Not as rich as the aroma implies. Fairly dark tasting - dark coffee and dark fruit are most prominent. Light citrus fruitiness.

Pours a deep clear brown with a thicker tan head. The head quickly settles down, leaving nice soapy lacing. The aroma is pretty weak, with some generic dark and caramel malt notes with a little bit of alcohol. The taste is a little better, with some nice nutty notes and a little sweetness, but not much else. The body is a little thin and there is too much carbonation for me.

For an unspiced winter brew this is decent one.
I dont care for "spiced" beers generally. So this is a nice break from the porters and stouts.
Would be nice with fish and chips or nachos...

12 oz bottle. Pours brown with tall, long lasting, fluffy, off-white head and nice lacing. Aroma is of bready malt, herbal hops, chocolate, cherries and brown sugar. Body is medium and smooth. Taste is of chocolate, bready malt, honey, cherries, cacao, brown sugar and herbal hops. Finish is long and semi-dry. Well made brew.
