A: Pours a dark bronze color with a decent off-white head that fades to some lacing.

S: Aroma of roasted malt, and some caramel.

T: Taste of roasted malt , some caramel sweetness and bit of spice. Mild bitterness and a fairly clean finish.

F: Medium body, smooth and quite creamy texture.

O: Nice seasonal beer but nothing to get excited about.
