I had this at Federal Taphouse, enjoyed chilled in a tulip.

The color is deep crimson with translucent clarity and thin tan head with copious confetti-type lace. The smell is malty with a woody hop scent and mild caramel aroma with spiced ester and mild dried fruit scent. The feel is great with semi-dry feel up front with medium carbonation and moderately low bitterness with subtle spiced middle and lightly warming finish.

The taste starts with dark dried cherry with a slight woody spice which is cinnamon-like with some woody hops blending in the taste and complimenting the mild caramel foundation with a light warmth of alcohol in the finish. Overall this is very easy to drink with a pretty great balance of flavors - malt, hops with a spice presence I found this to be one of the better winter ales I have tried this year.

edit - 2016 version
Appearance is good as well as smell however the feel is a lot of boozy heat and flavor is decent yet the alcohol comes out a little too much in the finish Overall not bad but I was glad I did not get more than 10oz
