Thanks to Beer Revolution in Cowtown for bringing in some nifty Deschutes brews of late. The holiday seasonal from this brewery (or maybe its just a winter seasonal) is a dark reddish brown with a decent amount of tan foam. Aroma was a pleasant surprise, lemon-lime hops first (of all things) followed by a more expected sweet caramel malt. Dark and fruity at the same time. Tastes of treacle toffee, chocolate syrup, brown bread crust, green coffee beans, citrus rind, bubblegum, stone fruit, red berries ... A barrage of dark malt and sweet fruity flavors that co-exist in a tasty congress of the unexpected. Booze is detectable and becomes more so as one proceeds through a pint. Light-bodied and very smooth with middling carbonation, featuring a long roasted finish accented by medicinal hops and gooseberry notes. Really quite unique. How can toffee also taste zesty and refreshing? You can read in several reputable sources that dark malts and assertive hops typically mesh about as well as the Greeks and the Turks on Cyprus, but in all honesty I think this is a myth ... Done right, one gets some tasty results.

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.
