I get this every year - always a solid offering. Pours a reddish brown, clarified ale, with an ecru head. Smells very malty, jammy, and of dark, candied fruit; kind of like fruitcake, now that I think about it. Flavor brings a bit more choco-mocha to it along with dark fruit, and a little wine-like strawberry element. Mouthfeel is pretty solid, somewhere between medium and heavy bodied, but this isn't a huge beer. ABV comes in a bit below a 7, and for the style I think it should achieve at least a 7, but I'm not making the rules here. Overall, very good winter warmer, good representation of the style, and a good offering from Deschutes.

Pours a big three fingers of head on a dark copper colored body.
The aroma is strong on the caramel with some lemon, toffee and milk chocolate too. Quite a nice mixture.
The taste is caramel and toffee sweet, with a little lemon and pine bitterness.
The texture is medium body with moderate carbonation.
It's got great aroma and a wonderful flavor.

Found this at the Wegmans in Warrington and snatched up a sixer fast.
A pretty good beer. It's spicy, sweet and bitter with a nice roasted malt nose.
It drinks well sweet and spicy to start with a yeasty dry finish. But that finish is a bit harsh for some reason.
I'll hold off on the others until it a leasts gets cold.

A: Dark brown with slight cloudiness. Brown foam settled quickly but left a large mess of sticky glass clinging foam.

S: Roasted chestnut and cedar. Good roasted malt. Hints of maple sweetness.

T: Strong roasted grain and rye taste. A warm spiciness softens the roasted notes. Strong hoppy finish balances out the flavors well with hay and dried grass.

M: Medium strong dryness. Finishes with very low dried leaf aftertaste. Surprisingly thin and light in texture.

O: One of the staples of the winter seasonals. It's refreshing and easy drinking. I'm not terribly impressed, but its still a very good beer.
