Pours a hazy walnut brown with ruby hues and a nice, level cream colored head that is packed with dense carbonation and lies atop the beer for quite some time.
A big sweet aroma of dark fruits such as raisins, grapes, or plums leaps from the glass, followed by lively yeast and caramel malt. As it warms, there is even a bit of a floral character.
The palate also features sweet dark fruits, similar to those in the nose, caramel malt, and yeast, but from mid-palate through the finish, the warming spices arrive, possibly nutmeg, and something peppery, and in the end there is even a faint hop presence.
Medium in body and medium to high in carbonation, perhaps drying, and a very nice warming quality.
Way too easy to drink for the abv, which is buried in the abundant character the palate offers. Quite a diverse brew, a modern day twist on a traditional style. Nice Warmer!

Poured into a chalice. The beer pours a decent cream colored and creamy head that dissipates quickly. The beer itself is an opaque brown with a hints of red and light purple. The color is close to that of a lighter plum color. The beer smell has sweet dark fruits notes and bready yeast notes as well. The beer also has a very subtle alcohol note along with a slight caramel taste. However, the dark fruit notes such as plum, a little bit of grape, and nectarine dominate the smell. The taste is similar but the taste also has some Belgian sugar notes. The yeast notes are stronger and counteract the dark fruit tastes very well. The mouthfeel is heavy bodied with biting carbonation but is still very smooth. Overall, a good beer and one worth getting when you can. I can certainly see why this thing would warm someone up at night.
