Poured carelessly into a Carters Brewery glass;-/Props Carters

Appearance: dark copper, frothy milk head. small retention.

Smell: rich toasted malt dominates the aroma. Lingering is dark chocolate with noticeable nuttiness. Sweet candy toffee. beautiful nose for those who love rich aromas. Light herbal hoppiness also complements the otherwise dominant malt.

Taste: rich in molasses initially. Vanilla follows. Tasty I say. Full bodied and chocolate rich. Ends a tad bitter with notes of lingering dark cocoa in the background enticing the drinker for more. For the most part this beer holds ground for being balanced. Rich malt with enough of a hop backbone to keep one satisfied.

Mouthfeel: Medium carbonation moves smooth through the palate. Fulll bodied

Overall: Great beer for this style. Something I wouldn't turn down. Deschutes does it again

Bought at Morgans in Denver, CO

I have read that the label changes annually. This years label is very well done, I really like it.

A&S: Very malty in the aroma initially which gives way to more of a piney earthy hoppyness. Very subtle hints of milk chocolate and roastyness. Huge (more then 2 fingers) light tan colored head. Lively semi-transparent garnet colored beer.

T&M: surprisingly well hopped for a winter warmer. There is a sweetness present but is well balanced by roasty and hoppy components. Piney and roasty elements in the finish (semi bitter). This beer is a very well balanced and on the more complex side of flavors (makes ones palate think). No alcohol presence. Smooth, but crisp. On the lighter side of medium (its refreshing, but not too light).

Overall: Deschutes has kinda been a disappointment for me so far, however this beer was very good. I really don't know how many beers I will continue to try from them, because it seems hit or miss, but this one is worth checking out.

12oz bottle poured into a St. Sebastian tulip.

Pours a deep, dark amber with decent amount of carbonation and some lacing present.

The smell of holiday spices and roasted malt reminds me that fall is upon us.

Nice full roasty flavor up front with spice and a lingering bitterness from the hops. The medium body makes this a great fall/winter sessionable ale, I could easily drink 2-3 of these during monday night football (but probably not the whole 6pack @ 6.7% ABV).

Overall a very drinkable, but full flavored fall/winter beer. I would choose this over many of the fall/winter seasonals or pumpkin beers I've had so far and is relatively cheap at $8 per 6pack.
