3.8/5 rDev +1.9%
look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4
Poured into draft glass
A- Mahogany color body with a one finger tan-colored head that wasted no time dissipating.
S- Raisin, molasses, dates, sweet malt on the nose. Smells pretty nice.
T- Heavy raisin taste up front with some of the dates and molasses in there as well. A pungent bready malt overtakes the sweetness up front and gives way to a touch of bitterness on the finish. The nose was better than the pallate.
M- Medium to heavy body. Smooth mouth-coating feel to it. Good for the cold months.
O- Not a standout beer, but I will admit that I am not a fancier of winter ales and winter warmers. It didn't blow me away, but it didn't suck. LBC makes some respectable beers and this was overall a solid effort.

Poured from a bottle, into a glass.
I'm afraid to say that the appearance of this beer is the best thing about it. And the soundtrack of Chicago blues that I'm playing in the background, but admittedly, that has nothing to do with this beer.
It smells a bit boozy with dried fruit and plum. I get the "boozy" part now because I just realized it's nearly 9%. It has the ubiquitous caramel/molasses/sugary smell of heavy winter beers.
No. I might be the only person on here that dislikes this beer, but it was a miss for me. It was too metallic for my liking, and the dried fruit smell was more sour than I expected. It did improve as it got warmer, but still, there are so many other winter beers to choose from.
The moutfeel was metalicious, which is a word I just made up. And if you read the preceding paragraph, you'd know that it was a bit sour - and therefore a bit tart in the talkhole.
Again, this didn't hit the mark for me. In a world with so many holiday or winter beers to be had, this one would get a lump of coal from me. Go have the Lancaster Milk Stout instead. You'll be glad you did.
