The 2006 edition. Pours a dark, ruddy brown with a thick tan head that laces the pint glass nicely. It smells of dark cherries and hops, the contrasting smells balancing each other out nicely. Taste really doesn't have any of the yeast's fruit, which is a bit odd. Tastes more like a pale ale than a winter warmer. Assertive flavoring hops but not too much bittering. Nice but not what I was expecting. Mouthfeel is slightly chewy but then finishes a bit thin. Drinkability is pretty good. The hops are refreshing without being so bitter as to be limiting. All in all, a decent brew.

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
