look: 3 | smell: 3 | taste: 2.75 | feel: 3 | overall: 2.75

Appearance: Very slightly hazed light copper with some orange leanings. Head is small, creamy, and off-white. Drops to a spotty cap and small collar in short order. Moderate carbonation of the pour. A bit lighter than I've come to expect from the style.

Smell: Light spiciness. Malts run on the sweet side with a ton of cooked and caramelized malts. Caramel sweetness with some slight cereal grains. A touch of alcohol. Toasted and bready, like whoa. A touch of smoke and some roasted malts. Vabguely fruity.

Taste: Malty, obviously. Caramel, some toffee, and an earthy undertone. Nice balance of roasted and toasted malts. Some minor backing spice, but it's well hidden. Some apple and pear. Alcohol is present, but not assertive. Warming alcohol on the back with some associated spice. Bready with some dried grass on the back.

Mouthfeel: Slightly creamy with a medium body and moderate carbonation. Slightly dry on the finish with a crispish finish.

Overall: Half a firestarter.

An ok winter warmer. Malts are nice, but it's missing a little complexity. A bit sweet overall, but not bad by any means.

Thanks Lukaski for picking this brew up for me.

Rusty amber color. Good bubbling. Nice off white head after the pour and some strong film o' foam for all twelve ounces.

Sweet malt and somewhat banana like yeast aromas. Smells malty sweet and inviting. But the aroma for this style of beer seemed a little off.

There's some cracker, biscuit, and a little bread crust malt flavor. The rest is dominated by booze. Pretty hot beer here. Does NOT taste the way it smells at all. Bitter alcoholic finish.

I won't buy this beer again. I was definetly disappointed with this beer.
