Poured into a 13 oz tulip glass. Pours a ruby red, with a one inch off white sticky head, that leaves a wall of lace. Smell is all just hints of nutmeg, ginger bread, caramel, orange peel, pine tree, and cinnamon. Taste is as festive as the nose, balanced perfectly yum! Body is medium large for its abv, nice amount life, not really dry, and easy drinking. This is an excellent winter warmer, not over barring like some spiced up beers.

Picked up a case a few weeks ago (so glad we get Deschutes in the Philly area!), and this is not my first sampling from that...

12oz into standard pint glass at about 45 degrees.

Pours with about an inch of tightly packed, dirty-sand-colored head over a very deep and cloudy ruby body. Awesome, sticky lacing throughout.

Stick your nose into this one, and you get Christmas. Lively Cascade/NW hops bring you full-on pine tree action, with rich, sweet malts and plenty of holiday spices. Plenty going on here!

Mouthfeel is somewhat crisp and full of carbonation, which cuts nicely through all the flavor and richness of this Winter Warmer. Flavors lead with a somewhat complex hoppy mash-up which doesn't relent. Toasty malt lingers in the finish. Somewhat rye-like. Holiday spices are there, but not over the top. Slight molasses-like sweetness in the finish, too. This is not an all-night beer, but it certainly is festive.

Lovely Christmas beer. Very glad that I sprung the 45 on this case.
