Not bottle conditioned, served at fridge temp. $6.50 per six pack.
I'm comparing this beer to Old Jubilation from Avery, as they were side-by-side at the store as winter beers. This one has a higher score than Avery's entry, and is lower in price.
A: Similar to Old Jubilation: dark and dim, but more clear, lighter red. Darker cap. Sandstone. Produces a five-finger head. Creamy with windex bubbles in the center. Gums itself onto the glass. Not super-persistent, but falls to nice amount quickly. Quite nice, actually, it makes a prominent display, and then gets out of the way for consumption. Layer of cream, collar, and crescent-shaped bubble-field.
S: The nose of this beer is more phenolic, and hints at banana, and grapefruit. It's juicy, with citrus and spice. Malty. Banana and spice, very nice.. honey. Sweet. Fresh hops, but not bitter. Toffee. Cayenne pepper. Cinnamon banana. Enticing, makes you keep whiffing throughout.
T: Neither weak nor strong. Good for a full-strength beer. Spicy brown. Malts. Spicy. Caramel.
M: Full body, a little sticky, but tnot too much. Good astringency. Med-high carbonation that tries to escape from my belly.
D: Easy to drink, probably the best in the winter categrory ive tried. Doesn’t strive to be extraordinary, yet succeeds immensely at not being good, as opposed to great. Doesn’t push the envelope.
This could be my go-to in the winter warmer category, despite it's mildness.

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
