Overall not a bad holiday session beer, i remember the first time i drank it, wasn't blown away, but it was decent, what you want in a session beer.

Of most seasonal offerings, i am glad its not gimmicky with over the top spice tones, and can just have a couple on Sundays watching the game.

Like Deschutes beer very much, and their seasonal offering is better then avg and something to look forward to each year.

Recommend picking up a bottle if you can!

Pours a ruby brown when held to the natural light and a perfect garnet when held to the indoor light. Has some honey gold and brown hues and good clarity. A fat khaki head of foam that falls like a lazy Sunday morning. Laces like it means to with rings and patches. Nose is malty and sweet. Some lightly sweet chocolate and dark fruit. Some spice and some earthy leafy depth. Has a little cinnamon and nutmeg but they are blended so well that it's hard to pick them out. Taste is dynamite. The malt is perfection and smooth and full but not too heavy. The chocolate is less powerful in the taste and the earth and grain from the roast comes to the forefront. I love how this beer has a roasted quality that comes right to the edge of where it would have become bold and impudent like a stout but stopped gently. It has grain in the taste and that's how well done it is. The fruit takes a back seat but sweetens this beer subtly and without too much fanfare for a pleasant and mild flavor overall. The mouthfeel is excellent and the hops show off a touch of bitter alongside a bit of bitter from the roast in the finish that I thought was especially festive. has a nice gentle warming from the alcohol and a slight dryness in the finish. This beer because of it's earthy nature doesn't have to stay on the desert or on the after table. You could serve this with plenty of foods.

Cheers and thanks Bill for the chance to try this fine beer.

A - I opened up the bottle and started to pour and was amazed. It comes out of the bottle with a nice dark brown color. The head was light tan and fluffy. LOTS of lacing. The body is slightly foggy and full of particles and bubbles.

S - Sweet caramel and lots of malt. A lot going on with the taste. You get lots of malt flavors at first but they fade off and you get a very light hop bitterness on your tongue. Its sweet and a little bready.

T - A lot going on with the taste. You get lots of malt flavors at first but they fade off and you get a very light hop bitterness on your tongue. Its sweet and a little bready. I found the taste to be pretty complex.

M - Surprisingly light, by looking at it in the glass I expected a heavier beer. It goes down smooth and the carbonation is right. Flavors linger in the mouth for quite some time.

O - Good beer from Deschutes. Not too heavy but delivers some good malt and hop flavors infused quite nicely. Try it if you can!
