An A+ Winter Warmer from my friends at New Glarus.
I bought this March of this year and let it hang in the cellar till well now. His buddy is chilling till next year.
A: great pour, nice thin head, a bit off white
S: Nice notes of spice and malt. Some vanilla and caramel
T: Mouth filling, lots of richness but not a stupid amount like some winter warmers. Not boozy at all.
M: as stated above, just a great coating of winter happiness.
O: IOm gonna let the other one hang for a bit longer, see what happens. This was just excellent and what I wanted.

Pours a caramel straw color with a smallish head that fades quickly in my Duvel tulip.

Aroma produces Belgian rock candy sugar, alcohol and dark fruit.

The first taste has a surprising coconut flavor that is quite pronounced. The second taste has a less pronounced coconut component and some alcohol and dark fruits come into play. The finish has some residual candy sugar sweetness that is not cloying at all. Rich malts and a slight fruitiness are present.

The mouthfeel is rich yet somewhat sharp from the alcohol. Light carbonation and a medium/full body.

Overall I like this winter warmer. it's a bit boozy (necessary for warming!) but pairs well with the candy sugar flavor.
