16oz can with no date, opened 12-25-22.
2 finger beige, frothy head with great retention. No lacing. Dark brown body with amber highlights. Spicy nose full of clove, light cinnamon, nutmeg, and dark fruit. Malt, brown sugar, baking spices - all deftly balanced and very tasty. Medium body and somewhat creamy mouthfeel in a moderate length and lightly sweet finish. 10% isn't apparent at all at the sip but definitely warming. Very Good.

What can I say? Peticolas is a brewery that grows on me. When I started this beer, I couldn't help feeling that it lacked something as a winter warmer. The body was thinner than I expected and yet it still managed to coat the tongue. The aroma lacks something, but the more I smell it, the more I notice. The taste seemed a bit light on the malt and roast, with little spice, but as I drink the layers keep sticking around and the flavor has developed into a deep, rich spice with refreshing bitterness after each sip.

It's a good beer. Probably the best winter warmer I've had, even if I didn't believe it at first.

Had this beer at the Craft Beer Cellar in Dallas on tap. Poured into a small snifter. Dark grayish brown color with good head and excellent curtain lacing. Warm spice smell and taste. Cinnamon, allspice, ginger. Nice comforting beer that nicely fits the description of winter warmer.

Best winter beer in DFW. Extremely aromatic. Spices everywhere. Slightly hot...just enough.

Dark, like a stout. A little light showing through. Tan head - about two fingers.

Malts and sweets!

Graham cracker and cloves. I also get apricots, cinnamon, nutmeg, spices, and predominantly chocolate. Caramel and toffee follows. The heat is almost not there, but it sneaks in at the back.

Mouth is smooth and velvety. Has a thicker body with a buttery slide. Very nice.

This is a wonderful beer! I love winter warmers (when they're well-made). This is a good "double" winter warmer, if you will. The flavors just dance around nicely and the complexity of the beer really stands out.
