4.35/5 rDev +10.4%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5
12 oz bottle from the Utah system poured into my beer goblet. Has a best before date of April 16, 2012.
Appearance: A really nice looking beer. A long lasting one fingered sandy tan head with tight bubbles. The beer itself is a clear garnet reddish brown with lively carbonation streams. This one does leave some lacing as it goes.
Smell: Some boozy (slightly) sweetness along with some piney hop notes. The acidic carbonation lifts the malts up so they do not drag along.
Taste: A nice malty presence that is slightly sweet combines with some bitterness from the hops. They are noticeable in the finish as the sweetness fades away. The malts are toasty and caramel in nature, while the bitterness is earthy with a little dried fruit as well. There are some spice notes as well, possibly from the yeast and not to the extent of, say, a pumpkin ale. The finish is relatively long lasting and tasty.
Mouthfeel: The body is on the thick side of medium. The carbonation is soft and just right.
Overall: An excellent beer. I will choose this for my winter warmers. This is not so radical that it shouldn't be recommended to anyone. I really enjoyed its complexity.

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
