Poured from bottle into a pint glass

Appearance – The beer pours a slightly hazy lighter mahogany-brown color with a one finger head of tan colored foam. The head has a good level of retention, fading over time to leave a light level of foamy lace on the sides of the glass.

Smell – The aroma of the beer heaviest of a sweeter caramel and darker fruit smell of cherry and raisin. Along with these aromas comes notes of caramel and some spice is there as well.

Taste – The taste begins with a sweeter dark fruit flavor of cherry and raisin, just as the nose would have suggested. Along with these flavors are some lighter roasted malt tastes, which grow stronger and stronger to the end of the taste. The fruit while heaviest upfront, is later overtaken by a caramel and slightly bready taste. A hint of a boozy rum flavor and some spice flavors develop later in the profile, melding well with the sweeter caramel and fruit to leave a nice warming flavor on the tongue.

Mouthfeel – The body of the beer is on the thicker and chewier side with a carbonation level that was rather average. Overall the feel was rather good for the fruit, syrupy and warming tastes of the brew, although just a hint less carbonation may have been slightly better overall.

Overall – This was a very tasty brew overall, with a great drinkinability nice light warming feel and just enough spice to balance the sweet.

A moderate pour produces a one inch off-white head that proves pretty sticky. The beer is a medium copper color and slightly hazy with moderate carbonation.

I get a unique whiff of something in the aroma that I can't quite place, but it has a vegetal or medicinal quality. The flavor is pretty clean, with low bitterness and a lingering dry finish. Notes of caramel and a bit of a puckering twang, but not much. The body is fairly light for the style with a bit of effervescence on the tongue. A little alcohol warming as the beer progresses.

This is a fairly unique beer and quite unlike most winter warmers I've tried. The weird aroma is just a tad overbearing, but it drinks well overall.
