Picked up a case a few weeks ago (so glad we get Deschutes in the Philly area!), and this is not my first sampling from that...
12oz into standard pint glass at about 45 degrees.
Pours with about an inch of tightly packed, dirty-sand-colored head over a very deep and cloudy ruby body. Awesome, sticky lacing throughout.
Stick your nose into this one, and you get Christmas. Lively Cascade/NW hops bring you full-on pine tree action, with rich, sweet malts and plenty of holiday spices. Plenty going on here!
Mouthfeel is somewhat crisp and full of carbonation, which cuts nicely through all the flavor and richness of this Winter Warmer. Flavors lead with a somewhat complex hoppy mash-up which doesn't relent. Toasty malt lingers in the finish. Somewhat rye-like. Holiday spices are there, but not over the top. Slight molasses-like sweetness in the finish, too. This is not an all-night beer, but it certainly is festive.
Lovely Christmas beer. Very glad that I sprung the 45 on this case.

On tap at the Local Taphouse.
Pours a red colour, bit of haze. Head is off-white, webbed lace but sticks to the glass. Looks nice.
Smells like banana esters, with some dry sweet spice, nutmeg and vanilla. Touch of raisin. Could have more richness and more robustness, but decent.
Taste is chocolatey. Dry cocoa with some toffee, sultanas and some dried orange peel. Not much spice; more fruit and lots of chocolate. Not bad.
Full body, nicely textured. Slightly dry on the back.
Nice beer; have had better spiced Winter seasonals though, generally better because of more spice.
Serving type: on-tap
