Appearance - Ruby/orange color with a nice head that fades quickly and leaves some lacing.

Smell - Cherries, honey, some spices, and a little alcohol as the brew warms.

Taste - Pretty much the same as the smell.

Mouthfeel - Light to medium with very little carbonation.

Overall/Drinkability - Definitely a sipper. A great warming brew that needs to be enjoyed slowly. This beer seems to be on the threshold of greatness, but needs a tad more character to really blow me away. Not my favorite offering from Troegs, but give it a try if you run across a single or sixer. I going to cellar the rest of this six pack and see what its like come Spring. Cheers!
