Pours a clear garnet amber with large offwhite head. Good carbonation. Initial nose has some gentle spices: clove, pepper, brown sugar. Underlying malt smells of some light chocolate. As it warms, the chocolate & caramel aromas really shine through and come to he forefront. Tastes of sweet caramel malts with some chocolate & cocoa. Upfront spiciness - not sure from hops or actual spices. Medium high bitterness. Feels medium full to full with no hot alcohols. Overall, a nice malty beer for the cold winter nights. Subtle spiciness lends some complexity but doesn't distract. Very solid winter ale overall. Great to pair with dark chocolates.

Poured from a bottle into pint glass. Nice color and healthy head. Malts on the nose with a light but crisp hop finish. The flavors hang out on your tongue for a bit after too. Very nicely done!

Beautiful mahogany color...thick light tan head...brilliant appearance. The smell is of malt, with a little spice. Bitter taste, with some warmth. Lots of dark malt flavors...warming. Full in body. Great winter beer.

Pours a dark red, almost to brown color. Thin off white head with a small amount of lacing. The nose is English toffee and light clove. The spices here complement rather than overwhelm the palate. Definitely a complex winter seasonal - enough boozy heat and spice to make this a winter warmer but with plenty of other layers that allow for more balance and other pieces to fall into place. The toffee notes add a sweetness and brevity across the dark maltiness.
