I didnt know what to expect with this beer. As a winter ale, I was thinking more along the lines of a holiday brew with lots of spices. This did not have any.
At first I thought I was drinking a brown ale, had the right about of malt to it, but still it was different.
It was warming and very enjoyable.

This was one of the beers that I have a hard time picking out some of the finer traits. It wasn't hoppy, it wasn't this, it wasn't that, but it did seem to pull it all together.

Not something year round, at least for me, but in the cold winter, this tastes pretty good.

Appearance is a deep mahogany with garnet Ruby red clarity at the edges. A beige head settles and leaves great lacing. The first smell is of cherry sweetness and some smokey roast, with vanilla, caramel and oak. Delicious flavor with tons of complexity. Smoked wood, lingering oak, slight hop bitterness imparts some musty earth flavor. A bit of cherry, oak, caramel, toffee, and slight vanilla character. Medium bodied, medium low carbonation. The alcohol is slightly hidden but nice and warming. Overall this is one of the best winter warmers out there and the price point makes it affordable enough to knock back more than one without feeling guilty. Extremely complex and layered flavors. Highly recommended.

Unique brown-black color, nice malty aroma, relatively light body in a very dark beer.
