look: 3.75 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4.25

Lightly chilled 12 oz. bottle into a 33 cl snifter. Best-by date 2.5.14. Thanks to Kurt for flying this back from MI.

Look- Clear amber-brown with three solid fingers of crackly eggshell head that lingers. Nice curtains, but minimal lace.

Smell- Subtle but appealing. Heavily toasted biscuit is the driver, with a bit of powdery floral character buried behind it. Faint sage and honey as it warms.

Taste- Robust toasted honey biscuit and clean herbal bittering. Almost desert-like, the toasty flavor is well developed and delicious. Finishes clean, more sage and cracker along with an almost chalky spiciness that reminds me of boiled cinnamon.

Mouthfeel- Medium body, moderate carbonation, average feel and cleans itself up pretty well. Not boozy, but feels hefty for 6%.

Overall- Very nice, a winter warmer indeed. Good flavor balance, I'd definitely revisit this one if it were available around here.
