Orange-brown body with a decent head. Lightly roasted grain aroma; faint nuts. Warm, toasted grain flavors; roasted nuts; brown sugar; twinge of hop bitterness. Medium body; somewhat chewy; semi-dry finish.
Not as big and bold as some holiday ales yet a solid effort overall. The malt sugars are warm and inviting and cling to the palate, slowly dissolving and leaving a nice hop bitterness and slight brown sugar aftertaste. Perhaps not the epitome of a winter warmer, but tasty and inviting all the same.

Poured a dark caramel brown semi-clear color with 2-to-3 fingers of khaki white head. Good amount of circular foamy lacing on the sides of the glass. Great retention on the top all the way down.
Smelled brown sugar, caramel, toffee, roasted nuts and nutmeg. Some type of hops in there that balances the malts nicely, but couldn’t figure it out.
Tasted similar to the nose with brown sugar, toffee, caramel, nutmeg and roasty nuts. Very smooth.
Medium body. Creamy-to-sticky texture. Average carbonation. Long, smooth, somewhat warming finish.
A pretty decent beer. Not quite a winter warmer for me, more like a winter lukewarmer, but good nonetheless.

Bit of faint tart fruit, nearly cherry-ish, even more faint floral type of nose. Adequate wispy lacing which is quick to fade to nothing which follows through on the head which is also faint and wispy and a slight ring around the glass edge. A lazy bubbler, with a truckload of sediment which when shone by a flashlight makes the head glow a christmas frosting red.
Mouth follows through on the slight tart cherry-ish feel with a nearly raisiny not quite spicey hanger on that lingers in the mouth with a slight pucker. Not really a solo beer, but one that is going to be an enabler at the table in the pre and post dinner categories of the evenings drinking. Should pair well with chocolate and some other things that utilize chocolate and fruit and also of course. Meat, and maybe some aged cheeses.
