3.3/5 rDev -11.5%
The beer off the pour looks great. But the flavor profile is way, way too malty sweet. No balance whatsoever. Some people might dig this interpretation of the style, but I can't say that I really do. It just doesn't work for me. And I personally don't think it fits to style. Too sweet with not enough accent to keep it interesting. I suppose you could age it to see what happens.

3.53/5 rDev -5.4%
Pours a cola brown with ruby highlights. Large three finger head with good retention and bits of lacing around the rim of the cup.
Sweet caramel malts, raw grain, syrup and molasses. Fruity notes of fig, raisins, red berries and slight gingerbread spice notes. Large alcohol note and notes of licorice.
Doughy malt, caramel sweetness tied in with holiday spice, licorice, anise and rhubarb. Very earthy spice character paired with light date, fig and red berry fruit. Slightly vegetative and herbal hops provide balance and drying. Alcohol is persistent on the finish.
Thin with low carbonation. High alcohol but a mellow winter warmer.
A slow sipping winter warmer, high alcohol and lower carbonation make the drink sit well and allow it to warm. The beer flavor is very simple and spread very thin but I appreciate the balance of spice, sweetness and fruit notes.
