12 oz. bottle. Pours a dark mahogany with little to no head. The aroma is mild up front and lightly sweet with notes of dark chocolate, cherry, coffee, banana, and pipe tobacco. Taste is Belgian yeast with a very nice hop burst. The hop bitterness complements the sweetness perfectly. A hint of Clove is also noticed. There is a nice middle of sweet, roasted malts. The finish is dry with nice bitterness and coffee lingering in the throat. This is an excellent winter warmer; complex and well-balanced.

Pours a deep, nearly opaque, garnet red that allows just a hint of clarity at the fringes. Small off-white head leaves very little lace behind and it fades as time goes on.
Smell is rich and malty with big notes of whiskey, vanilla, dark fruits with small notes of smoke & charred wood. Gonna let this warm before drinking.
Taste is malt, wood, dark fruit, whiskey with hints of vanilla and char. Great balance.
Body seems fuller at first sip but is medium really. Effervescence is sharp at the tip of the tongue but just for a split second. Warming and pretty dry, especially in the middle. Some lingering dark fruit & wood, though.
