From the 2008 version.

Dark brown with red highlights, two finger long lasting tan head and plentiful lacings.

Piney, citrus, spicey aroma.

Taste is citrus orange-grapefruit hops with a complex and sweet malt backing.

Mouthfeel is good though a slight alcohol presence is noted.

Excellent beer for fall or winter warming.

look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.5

A: Rust coloured, nice tan head... Good retention, spidering lacing.

S: Spices, and almost a buttery banana and fruit bread ( dark banana bread ). Nice stuff.

T: Spicy... A lot of ginger, some hints of nutmeg and cinnamon? Soft breadiness.

M + D: Soft carbonation, and a bigger body... Fairly full. Somewhat rich... alcohol comes across a little hefty though it's 'only' 6.7.

Poured on-tap into shaker pint glass.
A: Pours a dark ruby-garnet with 1/2 inch dark tan head. Excellent retention and lacing.
S: Sweet, spiced malt, cinnamon, clove, and some hazelnuts.
T: Follows aroma with pleasantly sweet malt, cinnamon, hazelnuts, and lightly toasted grains.
M: Softly sweet. Light-medium body. Mildly spiced. Fairly smooth and creamy feel.
D: Highly sessionable, especially for style. Not overly aggressive on the spice which serves this one well.

Serving type: on-tap

Nothing really stood out with this beer; rather, it's the beer's fine balance that makes a statement. However, it is more malty than hoppy, and it doesn't have a whole lot of detectable spice. To me this drank like a scottish ale or something of that ilk. The malt sports nice caramel, toffee, and nut flavors. I was happy to receive this as a holiday present, and it makes a fine winter session beer. Not one to track down, but one to keep in your fridge if it's readily available. Nice.
