4.25/5 rDev +4.9%
Don't know where to buy this, a friend gave me as a gift. After a gentle pour the amount of foamy head created was more than I expected but it finally calmed down to soft pillow of foam. The beer itself is a hazed brownish orange with very fine bubbles of carbonation. Flavor is settled and plain with a sweet malty base and touch of spice that sticks out enough to make for a decent holidays ale.

This one poured out as a brown color with a tan colored head on top. The smell of the beer was a little on the spicy side but nothing too crazy really. The taste of the beer didn't really give off the vanilla I was hoping for like it said on the label. The herbs and spices took over most of the flavor. The mouthfeel of this beer was a little on the heavier side. Overall this beer wasn't too bad but I felt a little disappointed by it.

3.95/5 rDev -2.5%
Appearance: A dark and brownish amber color. The head quickly dissipates and very little to no lacing.
Smell: A strong vanilla smell with a variety of spices such as cinnamon and some orange.
Taste: As it smells. The vanilla dominates over most of the pallate while it's buoyed by the spices. The orange taste is very weak and tends be dominated by the other tastes.
Mouthfeel: No carbonation and a smooth body.
Overall: A pretty nice beer and somewhat indulgent winter warmer.
