My 50th review on BA!
Served in a tulip.
The brew pours a deep mahogany red color, and rests under a big khaki head. The head went away fast, and left some lovely lacing. It looks alot like a dark red wine, and tere isn't much visible carbonation.
It's a nice and complex smelling brew. There are notes of malty sweetness, dark fruits, and spice. There is a slight alcohol aroma which is actually inviting in this beer. There are some noce earthy notes toward the end.
Follows the nose closely, though not as sweet. There's some big earth character and chicory flavor. There's almost a tree bark flavor, which is nice. Not as much spice as expected, but there is some slight spice character. It has a dried dark fruit flavor in there. Overall some really nice complexity in this one.
This beer starts off with some nice body and ends pretty crisp and dry. The carbonation is medium, and is just enough to make it nice and crisp. The beer is very drinkable overall.
This is a nice Holiday brew. It's very complex and satisfying. It's easy to drink, but could be a sipper due to it's complexity. I don't smoke, but this seems like a great beer to accompany a cigar. Perhaps by a nice roasty fire on Christmas Eve.

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
