3.78/5 rDev -4.1%
look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.5
Appearance - Dark, cloudy red with a cream-colored, fairly large head.
Smell - Alcohol, brown sugar, nutmeg, maple, and a bit of licorice and toffee.
Taste - Well balanced. The bitterness seems to come from the malts more than the hops. Somehow manages to start and end bitter with the sweetness coming in between. Alcohol is a noticeable part of the flavor profile, as is traditional with winter warmers. The aftertaste is lingering and bitter.
Mouthfeel - Medium-thick body and medium carbonation.
Notes - This is a good all round winter warmer. My only complaint is that lingering bitter aftertaste but that's forgiveable in an otherwise good beer.
Serving type: bottle

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
