500ml bottle. Bourgogne Wine glass. Very dark brown color. Small bubbled foam, yellowish beige in color, forms a close, wide & sticky head & leaves wide lacings on sides. Aroma profile displays : Intense caramel malt & candies, herbal – cumin & anise-, forest, blackberries & dried nuts. Toasted flavors, smoky hues, herbal infusion & dark fruits, underneath molasses & brown sugar. Full body. Moderate but slight sparkling carbonation. Velvet palate & dense texture. Well integrated ABV appears as a kind warming sensation. Fudge chocolate & fruit notes in the middle as well as dried nut zest, subtle spiced & spicy hints. Memories of coffee liquor & sugar –but no cloying- into a sweet toasted malt finish. Dark fruity aftertaste. Complex & flavorful as a Winter Ale should be!!

Poured from 500mL bottle into chalice on 2/21/14.

A: dark brown, almost black. Khaki head that recedes but leaves nice ring at leg. Looks like espresso.

N: chocolate & over-ripe cherries...not too complex, but rich. A little touch of peppermint, actually, in the background.

T/MF: creamy body w/ prickly carbonation. Mocha & a touch of hazelnut. There is a pleasant tartness (ripe sour cherries) to back up this sweetness. This beer finishes dry...maybe there is some Brett in here?..and fast. There is a spicy ness, almost like cracked pepper, in the finish.

Overall, very interesting. I never tried this fresh, but I like it now.

look: 2.75 | smell: 3 | taste: 3 | feel: 3 | overall: 3

syrup-y, sickeningly sweet. smells like allspice in it (although they don't mention it in the ingredients) and that stuff don't belong in ANY beer. the Stone 12-12-12 killed me on allspice for the rest of my life- that one was DROWNED in allspice to the point of gagging!
this one isn't that strong with it but itdefinitely tastes like it has a bit (coincidentally, it IS a collaboration with Stone). overall... just 'eh'. regrettable, but I didn't dump it, so that's saying something. cant wait for the next one....
