A: Pours a murky brown color with a thin tan colored head. The head recedes fairly quickly, leaving swathes of lace on the surface.

S: Really nice coffee notes here. Freshly ground medium roast with some nuttiness to it, almost a hazelnut note. Interplays well with the cinnamon and brown sugar notes here. Slight buttery toffee note as well. I like.

T: Roasted malt and coffee notes upfront. Slight hit of cinnamon with some caramel, toasted rye bread, brown sugar and slight charred malt on the finish. Mouthfeel is just a touch syrupy but holds the flavors together nicely. Just a hint of warmness from the booze in here. A really nicely put together Winter Warmer.

Collaboration with Beachwood. Very fragrant with coffee. Dark amber in the St. Bernardus globe with a thin foam and plenty of lacing in the glass.

Fruitcake dipped in coffee is the general taste. Dark fruit and a dose of liqueur sweetness. Burnt raisins and pound cake. Warm toffee and hot with enough alcohol to keep this from becoming syrupy. The cinnamon is restrained but adds a deep spicy note.

Like an Irish coffee with lots of booze. A touch of candied apricots. Quite a tasty and different kind of winter ale. From the 22 oz bottle purchased at Bine & Vine.

Pours a murky brown with a foamy khaki head that settles to a partial film on top of the beer. Foamy swaths of lace form around the glass on the drink down. Smell is of toasted malt, coffee bean, brewed coffee, and slight cinnamon spice aromas. Taste is much the same with coffee and cinnamon flavors on the finish. There is a mild amount of roasty bitterness on the palate with each sip. This beer has a lower level of carbonation with a slightly crisp and medium bodied mouthfeel. Overall, this is a very good beer with a fantastic coffee presence that works quite well with the base beer.
