I get this every year - always a solid offering. Pours a reddish brown, clarified ale, with an ecru head. Smells very malty, jammy, and of dark, candied fruit; kind of like fruitcake, now that I think about it. Flavor brings a bit more choco-mocha to it along with dark fruit, and a little wine-like strawberry element. Mouthfeel is pretty solid, somewhere between medium and heavy bodied, but this isn't a huge beer. ABV comes in a bit below a 7, and for the style I think it should achieve at least a 7, but I'm not making the rules here. Overall, very good winter warmer, good representation of the style, and a good offering from Deschutes.

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
