look: 3 | smell: 3 | taste: 2.75 | feel: 3 | overall: 2.75

Appearance: Very slightly hazed light copper with some orange leanings. Head is small, creamy, and off-white. Drops to a spotty cap and small collar in short order. Moderate carbonation of the pour. A bit lighter than I've come to expect from the style.

Smell: Light spiciness. Malts run on the sweet side with a ton of cooked and caramelized malts. Caramel sweetness with some slight cereal grains. A touch of alcohol. Toasted and bready, like whoa. A touch of smoke and some roasted malts. Vabguely fruity.

Taste: Malty, obviously. Caramel, some toffee, and an earthy undertone. Nice balance of roasted and toasted malts. Some minor backing spice, but it's well hidden. Some apple and pear. Alcohol is present, but not assertive. Warming alcohol on the back with some associated spice. Bready with some dried grass on the back.

Mouthfeel: Slightly creamy with a medium body and moderate carbonation. Slightly dry on the finish with a crispish finish.

Overall: Half a firestarter.

An ok winter warmer. Malts are nice, but it's missing a little complexity. A bit sweet overall, but not bad by any means.
