12oz bottle courtesy of Wasatch. Thanks John! Poured into a Bruery tulip.

A - A medium aggressive pour yields a deep, mahogany kissed brown color, well hazed with a good amount of floating particulates in the body of the beer. A short half finger cap of tan foamy head lingers briefly and leaves behind a thick collar around the glass and an uneven skim coat on the surface of the beer. Foamy lacing left on the glass.

S - Fruity and a bit bubble-gummy up front, nutmeg, spicy, a bit soapy, some caramel a bit in the background, candy sugar, hints of cherries, a touch of molasses. As it warms a bit the fruitiness tends to disappear and this trends more towards a roasty overall impression.

T - A bit different than the initial aroma led me to believe. Quite a nice roasted malt base which is very nice. Surrounded by touches of caramel, a rather brisk hop bitterness that is rather sharp, perhaps combining with the roasted malt to give a bit of a charred/burnt aspect to the beer.

M - A bit on the thin side of medium bodied. Carbonation is about the same and matches the body rather well. The just lively enough carbonation brings out the malty roast quite well. Smooth and easy drinking.

O - In a style that varies widely from hop bombs to malt bombs and all the way to liquid Christmas trees, this one is quite good. Balance is good with enough hops to give a bit of a bite and a strong malt body full of roasty flavors with just enough fruity/spicy flavors to make you reminisce for snowy winter weekend afternoons in front of the fireplace. Definitely worth seeking out.

Bottle best by 4/6/14. Dark ruby red pour with one-finger khaki head. Aroma is nice, sweet, nothing disagreeable -- reminscent of sweet orange. Taste is sweet & bitter up front -- more bitter than I expected. Citrusy, seemingly from yeast and hops. Bitterness in the finish, too. Mouthfeel is light-medium. Overall wanted this to be sweeter, but it's a nice beer of reasonable complexity.
