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.

Pours dark amber, light tan head that doesn't retain well.

Nose has toasted breadcrust, and some caramel.

Palate is caramel malty sweet, some hops in the middle to back for balance, and finishes a little warm with alcohol. Some black tea flavors are present as well.

Not a tremendous amount of complexity. Higher carbonation than expected for the style, and is most noticeable on the finish with the alcohol.
