On tap at Howe Sound brewpub, May 2009. Spring seasonal.

Appearance: Very red mahogany, transparent, with creamy uneven 2 finger beige head, receding to ring but leaving impressive lacing.

Aroma: Vinous with malt, winter warmer spices, and treacle.

Taste: Lots of smooth maltiness with nutmeg, cinnamon, and vanilla, maybe some other spices. Rich vinous flavours, some treacle. Wonderfully well brewed richness. Tastes like a mix of an excellent winter ale and a well aged barley wine.

Mouthfeel: Fairly full bodied, fairly carbonated for the style, but intensely rewarding.

Drinkability: Very moreish. The complexity of this beer, albeit not very dry finishing, is outstanding. This beer is so well made that it is a crying shame to not be available in bottles.
