12 oz. bottle from John's Marketplace PDX poured 12/25 pm into Delirium Tremens tulip.

Dark amber body, one finger light tan head, medium dissipation with significant lacing. The nose is fairly sweet and very complex, chocolate and fruity esters (cherries) up front, sweetish malts at beginning and bready malts towards the end. The taste is tobacco, chocolate, toffee, leather, citrusy hops with a bit of smoke at the end. Mouthfeel nicely carbonated, a bit sticky. Drinkability good for the ABV. Tough to categorize outside the Winter Warmer catchall, my best attempt would be Old Ale. Pretty tasty, one of the better beers I've had this holiday season. Recommended.

a - poured a 1/2 finger thick eggshell-colored head into a snifter that settled quickly into a thin ring. the body was a dark reddish-purple.
s - light chocolate malts, raisins.
t - huge malt profile most like dark fruits with some faint hops in the finish. really smooths out in the finish as well.
m - thin to medium.
d - really great winter warmer and goes down easily.
