Poured from a 12 oz bottle bottle into a tulip glass, best by 2/23/12 (?) on the back. This pours a dark brown with a smallish tan head which has good retention. The smells are of spices, caramel, other malts, no hops by now. The feel is medium. The taste is good, lots of malts, some spices, a definite alcohol presence.

Poured into a Sierra Nevada pint glass. No readable freshness date.

A- Pours a deep, dark brown that's somewhat opaque with a 1/2 inch off-white head that loosens and becomes an 1/8 inch ring around the edge of the glass. Neat constellations of bubbles on the surface and likewise-patterned lacing.

S- Roasty and somewhat alcoholic. Also a tad sweet-smelling with some spice notes in the back.

T- Heavy onset of roast that slips into a rubbery, boozy gutter and does not recover. No hops, no spice, no balance. Just strange.

M- Sharp twangs from the alcohol on the tongue and in the back of the throat. Dry with medium carbonation.

O- I don't know if this is what a true "Wassail" is supposed to be like, but this just does not agree with me.

Poured into a wine glass, a deep and glowing mahogany lurks beneath an off-white head. Aroma is of a cool and mildly peppermint spiced candy. Dark fruit, perhaps prune, rides sweetly along a complementary deep toasted malt blend backbone. Robust but smooth body with a warming feel in the finish.
