This one should be among one of the best BIG Daddy Ales. Pours a very dark amber color with a very frothy thick head over the ale.

You receive a nice hint of the malts in your nose with a sugar and spice accent

Very nice sweet smooth taste up front with the spice flavoring hitting you at the end. I thought this ale might have been to sweet at first but after further review its perfectly balanced.

The mouth feel is very nice medium to full with a very little hit of dryness at the end.

Over all this is one of the more perfectly balanced ales, the balance of malts and sweetness keeps you coming back for more. The brewing was very well done you could not ask for anything better. This is the perfect ale for the holiday season. I would recommend this to everyone.

Pour is dark brown with hints of mahogany, flat head. I love the smell of this beer, I would love to find out what I can cook in my home to make it smell like this; roasted, mocha, toffee. This is similar in style to a porter, but it seems much less malty and has a contradicting sweetness. Great mocha flavor, the mouthfeel is creamy with little carbonation. The 8.3% is well hidden. Truly a drink for the holidays, it warms my throat and is less artificially sweetened than say hot chocolate, with fuller body than coffee. If this ended up under the tree Christmas morning I would be one festive camper..
P.S. I love this ale.
