3.13/5 rDev -8.7%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3 | feel: 3 | overall: 3
A: pours a deep brown with a slight reddish hue, call it mahogany. a finger of deep off white head sits atop and fades to a small mat after a decent time.
S: smells of spices, toffee and a little bit of plumb. very sweet on the nose
T: toffee up front, some spices like nutmeg and a hint of cinnamon, a bit of dark fruit, slight toastyness from the malt and some sugary sweetness. slight herbalness on the back end. aftertaste is hard to describe but it's like spice mixed with some hops and a bit more residual sugar
M: medium with active and slightly prickly carbonation, a little drying on the swallow
O: solid beer but the finish on the swallow really ruins it. glad I only got the one. overall it's not bad and if the aftertaste was cleaner and the flavors played better it would get higher marks. up until that point it was a solid B.

12oz can poured into a tulip glass. Date on the can says bottled on 10/08/13
A: Dark opaque brown body with 1.5 finger khaki head tons of lacing and great retention.
S: Lots of cinnamon and nutmeg. MAybes some other spices I cant make out. Its a pretty standard smell the style.
T: Follows the nose, along with some carmel and toasted flavors.
M: Mouthfeel is alright could be a bit thicker, theres a slight astringency on the finish. The booze is hidden well.
O: Im not super impressed buy it, but its fairly decent and above average for the price point, I'll probably get it again eventually.

12 ounce can in to tulip glass, canned on 10/14/2013. Pours lightly cloudy dark ruby red color with a 2 finger dense light khaki head with great retention, that reduces to small cap that lingers. Spotty foamy lacing clings around the glass, with some moderate streaming carbonation. Aromas of big brown sugar, molasses, raisin, prune, ginger, cinnamon, clove, dark bread, light roast, toast, and herbal earthiness. Nice aromas with good complexity of malt, yeast, and spice notes; with good strength. Strength of spices is a bit too much in the nose. Taste of chocolate, cocoa, caramel, brown sugar, raisin, cinnamon, ginger, clove, brown bread, light coffee, toast, and herbal earthiness. Lingering notes of chocolate, cocoa, caramel, brown sugar, raisin, cinnamon, clove, ginger, brown bread, light coffee, and herbal earthiness on the finish for a good bit. Very nice balance and complexity of dark malt and spice flavors; with a great malt/spice balance and zero cloying flavors after the finish. Medium carbonation and medium-full bodied; with a moderately slick and smooth mouthfeel that is nice. Alcohol is very well hidden with minimal warming present after the finish. Overall this is a very nice winter warmer style. All around good balance, robustness, and complexity of malt and spice flavors; and very smooth sip on. A very enjoyable offering.
