Misc.: N/A

Poured a brownish red, almost mahogany color with 3-to-4 fingers of khaki tan head. Sporadic spots of lacing all around the sides. Average-to-above average retention on the top.

Smelled dark fruits, dark sour cherry, plum, dark raspberry and black cherry first, then got wintery spices - nutmeg, molasses, caramel, gingerbread and cinnamon. What a mix.

Tasted more what I was expecting with the wintry mix. Got nutmeg, cinnamon, gingerbread and molasses. Sour notes were still there with dark grape, bourbon, black cherry and sour cherry.

Medium body. Oily-to-creamy texture. Average carbonation. Long warming finish.

A very good and unusual winter beer. Would love to try it again.

These were originally marked at $9.99 but giant eagle was clearing them out for $6.99. Belgium Bomber score!

A - Ah nice carbonation a 2+ inch deep mocha head sits atop of a clear cherry brown very dark hue. Slow fizz out rate and decent lacing.
S - Smell is sweet with rum soaked breads, fruity yeasts, and some hard candies. Smell is not very heavy despite the high ABV.
T - Up front I get an oaky cinnamon stick nutmeg flavor that reminds us so of winter. Body is mostly candied sugars and some overripe banana.
M - Not that heavy in fact I would have guessed not over 7%. I really like how the yeast is not very heavy making for easy drinking.

Overall 7 bucks well spent this beer is pretty tasty. Wish I would have gotten to it sooner when the spices were more pronounced but its fine the way it is now.
