3.7/5  rDev -5.9%
look: 3.75 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4 | feel: 2.75 | overall: 3.5

Deep copper/red coloring, decent head and haphazard lacing.

Dark fruit in the nose, with whiff of alcohol, brandy.

Taste follows the nose for the most part. I taste fig, dark cherries and sugar malt, that generates some dryness. A bit of a sipper for it's lowish ABV. A brief - again sweet finish with some warmth. Was not fond of the high carbonation which took away any smoothness.

Ok winter brew that hits on a enough marks, but has little special to offer.

had an empty slot in my six pack and the mild abv made this one a winner. bottle has a best by date 05/27/19, dumped into my pint glass a clear reddish brown with a tan head that leaves a whole mess of lacing behind. aroma is fairly sweet, caramel covered cherry-ish, with a good bit of that spice blend that brings back fake childhood christmas memories. this thing coats the mouth with a numbing sweetness, and all of those other qualities i expected seemed to go sit out somewhere but a roast-y bitterness tries to make up for them. it leaves the mouth a bit dry and that bitter factor solidifies in the back of the throat. it's smooth and solid but missing a certain somethin for me.

A: Pours a bubbly 1.5 finger head. Color is a dark maroonish brown. Nice sticky lacing

S: Raisins, dried berries, malts, caramel, chocolate, spices, nuttiness. Rich, luscious, intoxicating

T: Nice even note. Malty with the fruitiness and hops as welcome sidekicks. Nice roast grounds the flavor throughout and finishes clean

O: Nice brew for a chilly night. A dark beer with just a slight touch of festiveness

This beer came from a 12 oz. bottle that I picked up at a local craft beer store. It poured a cola color with a beige (almost tan) head that was about 1 and 1/2 finger widths thick. The head disapated slowly and left ample lacing.

The aroma was chocolatey with a hint of fig.

The initial taste had some subtle fruitiness, but the toasted malt kicks in almost immediately. The malt is heavy in the middle with more of the fruitiness (figs? raisin?) and a hint of cocoa. The end is characterized by the warming of the alcohol on the tongue and maybe some sour cherries. From start to finish, this beer was dominated by a smokiness that reminded me of a Schwartz Bier.

The mouthfeel for this beer was surprisingly crisp with a high level of carbonation.

Overall, I had expected this beer to be a bit more complex than it was. There may be some additional flavors in there, but the whole thing was so toasted and Smokey that the complexity was masked. It was a good beer, but doesn’t fit the typical Winter Warmer style.

Just what I want in a warmer. Looks a dark brown with light tan head, but when holding it to the light the deep reddish tones are clear. Smell isn't overwhelming but get feuitiness-dark cherries- and some fall spices. Tastes a little lighter than expected, but I get cloves, fruity brightness, and a nice dull butterness at the end for a pretty clean finish. There is a real sweetness at the back as well. It's a really great expression of a winter warmer.

This is a smooth gem of a winter brew. At first glance the low ABV, and subtle smell don’t hint me with that warm darkness, but Deshutes seems to excel at how everything mingles on the palate. A dark cherry, creamy caramel with some tight mousse bubbles. The richness on the back of the tongue is wonderful, flavor moving toward an abbey dubble, and it’s sessionable!

12 ounce bottle poured into a tulip glass.

L---Clear, dark mahogany. Small head that faded to rocky islands. lacing was good.

S---Dark fruits (plum, raisin). Sweet malts dominate. Aroma is not very strong, overall.

T---Sweetness is dominant, but complexly put together. There's some caramel & brown sugar. Dark fruits follow from the nose. There's also some vague (at least to me) spiciness.

F---Thick/full bodied & lightly carbonated.

O---A proper winter warmer, although the ABV is low for that. Hopefully there's still some left when I go back to the store.

Dark brown with red highlights. Moderate tan head, some lace.
Sweet malt, dark fruit, a little chocolate in the aroma.
Ditto for the taste, with a spicy finish.
Medium-bodied.

Quite a nice beer from a new category for me. Tried this one on tap at local gastropub. Nice dark copper-amber color with just a little head and very spotty lingering lacing. Smells nice, mainly medium roast coffee, milk chocolate and roasted grains. Tastes similarly, along with some vanilla and malt. There’s a nice roasted nuttiness flavor in the aftertaste. Smooth mild mouthfeel, good carbonation. A solid beer from a brewery I trust.

Pours a dark amber. Smell is berries and pepper. Taste is bitter hops with berries and pepper. An odd combo.
