3.64/5 rDev -7.6%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.5
App: Dark reddish brown like that of raw honey. Pours a nice one and a half finger head that retains very well. Darker than a lot of winter brews, and almost opaque. Head is a rich coffee and cream color.
Smell: Slight medicinal twinge with significant malt character. Some notes of raisins and caramel. Smells “warm” like some belgian strongs, and oddly enough, a lot like fruit cake.
Taste: Dark and complicated maltiness blooms over the tongue with the first sip. Very deep caramelized flavors with notes of bitter pecan skin and molasses. Some interesting interplay between malt and fairly assertive hop character. A little bit brown, a little bit ESB with some extra bittering hops kick that lingers on your palate long after you swallow. The slightest bit metallic.
Mouth: Heavy bodied and very present when upon the first drink. Medium to light carbonation that fits the style well.
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
