Enjoying in the cold
Pours dark, slightly amber in color with a tan head. The smell is nutty and of red wine, and it tastes of fruit, spice, and licorice, but more so of malt (roasted). Carbonation is mild to moderate with and the overall feel is light. Complex flavors yet very drinkable

Poured into a 12 oz. tulip at Croft's Tavern, Spring City, PA
A- Slight deep brown body with red hues coming out. Tan head retains decently. A little lacing sticks to the glass as well.
S- Caramel, and a dark red wine flavor ( a little port like). Raisin and a small amount of alcohol in the nose as well.
T- Sweet roasted malts, dark fruit, and a little spice. Fresh yeasty Belgian spice. Very nice.
M- Tingle of carbonation, medium body, with a bit of creaminess. Sweet boozy finish.
O- This is more of a spicier version of a Dubbel, but very very tasty. Spices used sparingly, if at all, which make this a fine winter warmer in my book.

12oz bottle from a winter mixed case. The bottle does not appear to be date coded. I have not had many of this style to compare this to.
The color is rich and deep, indicative of a full body. This is very rich and traditional in flavor.
The alcohol is well hidden and quite warming. Very delightful.

Part of winter variety pack:
Pours black with a creamy light brown head that has nice retention. Thin strands of lacing, then trailing lace, stick.
The smell is of pumpernickel, medium to dark spicing, hint of anise and an earthy, roasty background. Quite complex and inviting!
The taste is of licorice, candy, roasted dark malt, mild dark spicing, pumpernickel, black cherry. Sweet and mildly spicy, it has a soft earthy, fruity touch, with a balancing dryness in the finish. The mild alcohol touch is well-integrated.
It hits the lighter end of full-bodied. It becomes smoother as it warms/progresses. It leaves a pleasant aftertaste in the mouth.
A complex, yet smooth and easy-to-drink winter warmer. This is just right for a cold evening!
