This beer pours a bright ruby with a medium sized off-white head. The aroma offers biscuity malts and sweet dark fruits. The flavor is soft and mild, with caramel, toffee, craisins, fig, mild sweet chocolate, and cherry. The mouthfeel is medium bodied and smooth, with low carbonation. Overall this mild flavors here are very pleasant, as well suited towards style. A winter session beer. This really compliments what I want to eat in the winter.

This one pours a fairly clear burnt orange color that has a thick long-lived tan head that is rich and creamy settling very slowly. leaving veinous and complex lacing down the glass.

The nose is a rich dry malt with notes of whipped cream, peppery hops, alcohol, pine resin, camphor.

The flavor is a complex dry malt bed with a crisp hop finish with earthy notes of grass, bread, pine, bitter hops, eucalyptus, and vanilla.

The mouthfeel is rich and just right for the beer style.

Overall another exceptional brew from Odell. A fantastic beer and I recommend it highly.

Good carbonation, but mouthfeel is more like a brown ale than a spicy/malty winter warmer. This was kind of a miss for me.
