Poured into a pint glass.

Appearance: A clear dark amber, small tan head that dissipates to a lacing.

Smell: Malty with some caramel and cinnamon.

Taste: Toasted malts, hint of caramel and some orange.

Mouthfeel: Not too heavy, easily drinkable. Moderate carbonation.

Overall: The taste is what stands out here and I am a fan. Easily drinkable, good for a winter beer.

Bottle into a duvel glass.

A: A ruby brown color, that is not too far from their boston lager. A thin head that dissolves to a white halo on the edge.

S: Smells slightly caramely with a little spice. honestly like a spiced Boston lager.

T: tastes like it smells. Its a spiced boston lager. Not really impressive or very dull. just good.

M: Not thin but not think. Makes it easy on the palate.

D: Easy to drink. Low in booze, not too heavy.
