Pours a nice dark cherry hued mahogany with a sheet of light tan foam. Smells of sweet malt, hints of nougat and ginger a bit of vanilla and graham, decent nose. Flavor is of dry, roasted malts with some coffee, some leather, some bitterness and a hint of rye bread. Medium bodied with limited carb and a slick, yet dry on acrid finish. Interesting beer, not sure I'm a huge fan yet.

A: a cherry red beer pours with a finger of tan pink foam and excellent clarity. Spotty lace.
S: Sharp hops and sweet malts with a bit of nutmeg and cinnamon.
T: hmm the yeast is no good and too strong to me. Some metallic flavors, some astringency. Meh.
M: thin with moderate carb. Semi dry finish.
O: well, not my favorite. Not bad.

Poured from 12 oz bottle into tulip

A: Pours a roasty brown with frothy off white head billowing to the lip of my glass. Great looking beer. Slight alcohol legs with fantastic lacing sticking to my glass...

S: Roasted malts swimming in dark fruit juice and slight astringency from the alcohol and hops. Nutty, fruity aroma that definitely invites you in for a sip.

T: Roasted nuts, caramel and dark fruit hit you first. That's followed by a slight alcohol/hop bite that mellows out into a nutty, sweetness. Slight molasses aftertaste with enough astringency to keep it from being cloying. Well done....

M: Smooth and creamy. A little thin if you drink it too cold but as it warms the creaminess comes through. Great mouthfeel for a non-bottle conditioned beer.

O: A must have winter seasonal. I never miss this one and you shouldn't either. If you like winter warmers but don't want a cinnamon/spice bomb this is your beer. A well crafted beer that I anxiously await every winter.
