Served from a reasonably fresh 12 oz bottle dated "best by" 04/30/2012. Poured into a goblet.
A: Pours a very red-clay brown. TONS of carbonation coming off the bottom of the glass. Maybe a bit too much carbonation in the bottle. 3 inches of creamy head. Quickly disappearing head, with good lacing.
S: Hints of yams and licorice. A subtle spicy note, reminiscent of cloves.
T: A candied malt, with licorice and raisins. I would love a bit more hops or spices to balance the weight and sweetness of the malt profile, but considering it's a winter beer, I can appreciate this taste on a cooold night.
M: Feels a bit thick for a 6.7 percent beer.
O. Not my favorite style, but this does a decent job of representing a winter warmer. Lots of subtle dried fruit flavors to keep you guessing. I would personally like a bit more of a hop profile and maybe some cinnamon spice. I'd drink it again. C+

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!
