review from yesterday:

Enjoy By 2/21/14. I guess I'm about a month out....
Very dark, nut Brown, almost transparent. Small head, tan, creamy.
Aroma is slightly nutty, some spice, although it says there isn't any.
Taste is bread and caramel up front, sweet, then some hop bitterness to follow.
Kind of thin, especially for a 7.2% abv, but decent. leaves a bitter aftertaste with some kind of spice on the roof of the mouth.

A- Dark brown, chestnut colored body with a foamy cream-colored head.

S- Malty, lots of roastiness, some sweetness, hints of roasted nuts.

T- Pretty similar to the aroma, some roastiness, some nuttiness, hints of caramel.

M- Medium-full bodied, lingering aftertaste and some stickiness left behind. Medium carbonation as well.

O- Pretty decent malty winter beer. Pretty good flavors come through.

Consumed: Dec. 23, 2013
Misc.: Enjoy by May 13, 2014

Poured a mahogany clear color with 1-to-2 fingers of tan head. Minimal lacing on the sides of the glass. Below average retention.

Smelled caramel, toffee, roasty nuts, molasses and toast.

Tasted like a better version of the smell. Roasted nutes, caramel, toffee, biscuit and light chocolate.

Medium body. Oily-to-creamy texture. Soft carbonation. Long, bitter finish.

It was a very nice winter beer. I’d have it again.
