Appearance: Pours with a creamy, dense head of about three fingers. Head was present while drinking and continued to regenerate. Good amount of active carbonation, a touch above average for the style. The color is dark copper.
Smell: Toffee, caramel, cinnamon, and and herbal hops greet the drinker. Toasted barley and malts build on the body as you continue to get waves of rich, sweet toffee. Light airy spices and a touch of booze show up on the back end.
Taste: Vanilla, toffee, and oak hit the palate immediately. Hints of booze and roasted, toasty sweet malts warm on the body. Sugars with caramel and vanilla continue into the back end. Touches of cinnamon and spice open up on the back end and linger on the palate after drinking.
Mouthfeel: Extremely rich and easy drinking for the style. The toffee and vanilla flavors leave a rich texture behind on the palate. Spices are present but not overdone.
Overall: By far the best of this particular style I've had. Toffee and vanilla are the winners in the end, while the spices and hints of booze will warm up the coldest drinker. Just bought this at the brewery this last weekend and it is drinking phenomenally well right now.
