This beer was served in a pint glass at barcade in brooklyn for the winter beer night.
A - Dark, almost opaque. No head.
S - Some light hop character. But for a winter warmer i wasnt getting the spicyness i was expecting.
T - Tasteless, very disappointing. I was hoping for cinnemon or cloves but nothing was apparent.
M - Smooth and very light. Almost like a dunkelweisen
D - Very drinkable, just nothing spectacular. I wouldnt order it again. Maybe if I was closer to the brewery I would have it again, but since im in ny i cant imagine it was all that fresh either.
Serving type: on-tap

12 oz bottle. Pours brown with tall, long lasting, fluffy off-white head. Aroma is of herbal, piney hops, spices, dark fruit, brown sugar, coffee and caramel malt. Body is full and tangy. Taste is similar to aroma. Finish is long and dry. It was a perfect brew to drink after shoveling snow.

22oz bottle, nice to see another Pyramid seasonal make it across the 49th parallel, that's not the Oktoberfest.
This beer pours a clear, medium-dark bronzed amber colour, with three fat fingers of puffy, foamy, and somewhat bubbly beige head, which leaves some nice sudsy sea-spray lace around the glass as it lazily recedes.
It smells of biscuity caramel malt, burnt toast, a hint of bittersweet chocolate, mildly metallic clove and ginger spice, a prune and dried cherry dark fruitiness, and a soft citrus-tinged leafy hoppiness. The taste is gritty bready and crackery caramel malt, an astringent, kind of sour orchard fruitiness, subtle mixed holiday spice, and moderately weak earthy, citrusy, and pine needle hops.
The carbonation is on the down low, the body a thin medium weight for the style, and a bit too tight from that metallic essence to be deemed all that smooth. It finishes on the dry side, the malt turning tail, while the muddled spice and now evidently flinty alcohol aiding and abetting.
A mildly disappointing winter ale, the spice-malt interplay overlooked for the most part, and that edgy metallic nature hard to deny from mid-game on. Simple, perhaps a little too much so, to the point where I'm starting to think about my search for something else now.
