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.
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
