Imbibed on tap (nitro) at Original Gravity on 12/7/12. 

Pour a clear, deep red bordering on brown with a finger of dense, creamy tan head. This smells more like a red, as I get mostly caramel with some savory spices. Hops are citrusy, slightly piney, and mild in intensity. Flavor is also mainly caramel with some burnt/bakers chocolate. There is some cinnamon or clove spiciness and piney hop bitterness on the back end. Bitterness is pretty significant. The feel is appropriate for the style, but I feel it's a little thicker than normal because of the nitro tap. Finish is mostly balanced but slightly dry. This is a nice winter warmer in the sense that I get some spices, but it's not crazy. Feels festive but it's not overbearing. Would like to try it on regular tap or bottle for comparison.

Dark ruby red. Nice lace.

Nose has a roasted character and bold spicy hop note.

Tons of bitterness. This is a winter warmer? Well I guess this is a deschutes version...

Big chewy malt bill. Must be a Maris otter base malt. Raisin and fig push through the hops. Vanilla and caramel with a nice residual sweetness. Tasty and a very interesting. One for those hopheads to try.

This was one of the beers that helped ease me into malty goodness, after being a 5 star gold certified hop head (still am though).

Pours the deepest dark ruby, looks black when not lit well, nice tan half inch head.

Smells of candied toffee, mild coffee roast, raisins, and the hops are definitely there in the background.

First taste is pretty sweet at first, caramelly toffeeish flav
