One thing I like about winter seasonal beers is that there really are no hard and fast rules about what it should be like. Every year brings a new wave of awesome fresh suds, almost always using new recipes varying widely from brewer to brewer. Deschutes is a solidly competent brewery so I don't anything less than good beer for their winter seasonal. This one has very nice balance, with just enough hops to offset the sweet maltyness. The malt profile is complex, rich and grainy with a hint of toastiness and dried fruit. The hop character is clean and brisk with a mild woodsyness that lingers like slow stroll through the forest. Very nicely done.

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
