Had this during the holidays, and was so impressed that I still remember it a few months later and figured I'd write a review. Had on tap at the New New Old Lompoc on NW 23rd. Despite them tearing down the great old building a few blocks away and moving into the new yuppie apartment bldg monstrosity, this is still one of the best watering holes in NW PDX. Great food, too. To the beer - pours a perfect winter warmer brown with a thin head. Fruit and spice on the nose, and happiness on the palate from start to finish. Be careful as the ABV ismuch higher in this beer than you might think. Overall very pleasant, and I was bummed when they ran out.

On tap at SideBar the other day.

The beer pours a solid copper color with good head retention and considerable lacing. The nose is impressive as well, showcasing vanilla, nutmeg, considerable wine and a hint of cinnamon. The flavor profile replicates the nose pretty closely in this delicious rendering from new old lompoc. The spices and barrel aging really come together well in this beer, with just enough underlying bitterness to keep the light sweetness in check. Drinkability is excellent, as the beer is light on its feet and not at all heavy or boozy. This beer drinks like a 5% or 6% beer, so be careful. The finish is long, wine and spice driven, and quite satisfying.
