A: Amber color with white head.

S: "Warm" as a winter beer should be. Spices, some dried fruits and caramel notes are there.

T & M: Refreshing and tingling feeling in the mouth. Roasted malt, fruity and some spices. A little bit of fudge is also there.

O: Over all a decent winter beer.

A - 3/4" beige head falls to 1/4" quickly and stays there. Amber-brown with good clarity. Little lace.

S - Lots of fruity esters. Chocolate. Candy like sweetness.

T - Earthy malt. Chocolate. Nuttiness. Smoky in the finish. Fruity. Just enough hops to keep this from getting too sweet.

M - Medium bodied with a mid-level of carbonation.

D - Good drinkability, I enjoyed drinking this while it was available.

on tap at winghearts burger joint in downtown pittsburgh. pours a slightly cloudy cherrywood red color with a dying head. smells fairly basic, malty and seasonal, a little sharp from the alcohol. flavor is slightly spiced, malt driven, and subtly hopped. its very dumbed down for a winter warmer, nothing over the top, which makes is very drinkable i suppose. overall it was a well made beer but fairly unremarkable in terms of excitement.
