I expected a winter warmer style beer, not an English brown ale. Not gross, but really no good.

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...
