3.9/5 rDev -1%
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

A dark robust Christmas ale! Let the season begin folks. Scored this and was definitely a fan. Poured pretty dark and had a nice spicy twist to it.. Caramel malts on the nose. Drinks with a thick creaminess up front, quickly turning caramel hoppy bitter balance. It was a little hoppy for my liking but wth, still was a fan of the Schlafly Christmas Ale over this one I think....

Served from the bottle into a stemmed globed glass
A- Poured a very dark ruby red/brown color with a nice fluffy and frothy off-white head that left cascading lace.
S- Big malty aroma, red licorice, toffee, orange peel, and lots of spices (but nothing familiar that I can put my finger on)
T- Lots of breadiness, red licorice, orange peel, medicinal notes, lots of unfamiliar spices, maybe some chamomile
M- Very watery finish, lighter bodied, with some alcohol warming. The beer really lingers on the palate.
O- The mouthfeel on this beer was pretty disappointing and the flavor was ok. My least favorite from Deschutes so far. I had this on tap maybe a month ago and I remember it being different than this.

a clean deep reddish brown with lots of foamy off-white head.
smells of black pepper, chocolate, raisins, nutty. the flavor commences with a roasted bitterness of coffee grains / tobacco, then goes into a sweet subtle plum flavor. a dark roasty bitter ale.
medium body with moderate carbonation and a nice creamy feel on the lips.
i like this one, it's different as far as winter seasonals go. not much of a fruity or sweet malt profile.. but very deliciously bitter.

12oz bottle from a sixer – standard pint glass
*Notes from 11/21/12
A: Pour is an almond brown with a nice garnet red hue when held to the light. Mostly opaque with some clearing towards the edge. Thick persistent head of taupe colored shave cream. Impressive cascading sheets of lace.
S: Smells of gooey caramel and rich toffee with a considerable infusion of orange peel. There are some earthy spiced grains and a soft chocolate note paired with dried fruits/berries. Very nice and inviting.
T: Tastes of caramelized figs, warm bread, toffee, cardamom and candied citrus peel. Subtle influence of milk chocolate melds with plums, dates, figs, and raisins. This is respectfully hopped with a higher level of resinous bitters. Lingering with some dry peppery spices and organic herbs. Alcohol adds a soft warmth. Really quite a wonderful winter brew.
M: Moderate in body with a somewhat creamy consistency. Feel is a little wet and watery with a dry resinous pucker towards the end of the drink. Lingering viscid hop oils.
D: Really warms my cockles. Everything I look for in a Winter Warmer and extra hoppy to boot. Full of toffee, bread, citrus, and spice flavors but not heavily constructed. Maintains that light approachable drinking quality.
Very commendable to the style.
