Poured into a standard tulip.
Appearance: Pours an opaque, deep reddish amber with about a finger and a half of a medium tan head. Plenty of lacing and decent head retention.
Aroma: Faint notes of baker's chocolate, bready malt with almost pomegranate smelling hops. Very timid aromatics.
Taste: Bright notes of citrus and cranberry out front for a short while before the malts kick right in. Notes of soft chocolate and light cracker. Finishes dry with a bitter hop finish.
Mouthfeel: Very full and chewy with soft carbonation.
Overall: A good, albeit simple example of a hoppy brown ale. High drinkabililty. Very reminiscent of Grand Teton's Bitch Creek. Almost too similar in the malt depart. Not too sure what about this other than it being seasonal makes this a "Winter Warmer" If you want something similar(and better executed) year round, definitely seek out the aforementioned Bitch Creek.

Pours a deep amber/ruby color with a thin, tan (almost yellowish) head. Minimal lacing. No noticeable carbonation.
A very sweet with a bit of spice with a tinge of cola. Dark fruit notes, bitter cherries and fig spring to mind. Light brown sugar and molasses and a hint of hazelnut.
Beautifully balanced between bitter and sweet. A rush of slightly tart, dark fruit up front with dates and cherries. Sweetness brought to you by molasses with a bit of nice spicing that I can't seem to put my finger on. Tasty, this one is.
Smooth and super easy to drink. Medium bodied. Fizzy. Sweet finish.
Another fantastic offering from Deschutes. Easy to drink and loaded with character. Definitely worth picking up!
