Poured from 12oz bottle into standard pint glass. Enjoy by June 2nd, 2018.

L: Darker mahogany, half finger off-white head, average retention. good lacing.

S: Smells of rich malts and herbal hops. Faintly fruity.

T: Fruity for sure, with strong herbal hops that dry quickly, some toffee malts linger and a touch of cocoa. Nice.

F: Medium body, crisp, dry.

O: Good beer, solid winter warmer.

Pours dark mahogany wih slight to moderate head from bottle into glass. Smell is roasted malt notes, nutmeg, plum, currant, cinnamon, a touch of booze. Taste is the same but not as sharp and strong- fruit notes seem to fade to the background with the malt, but this backbone keeps the beer from going into spice overload. Slight bitter vegetal note at the end. Best way I can describe this is a slightly overroasted doppelbock with some spice notes. Passable, but going to be a drain pour partway through because I have better options for the price at the establishment I’m in right now and I’m not spending the liver metabolism on a thoroughly average beer.

Poured a deep brown with a substantial head. Lots of fruit aroma. Like the fruit in the trail mix you leave behind. Tastes like it smells with added spice and unimpressive hop flavor. Afterflavor of dried fruit.

Very enjoyable winter brew. Pours a beautiful mahogany color. Exhibits a pleasing aroma and taste with hints of cherry, banana, toffee, and bubble gum. Nice light Christmas-spice finish completes a nice progession of flavors throughout.

Has a wonderful deep red hue with a dense tan head. The nose is rich with bready malts and dark fruity esters, complimented by the aroma of anise, cinnamon and a hint of chocolate.
This beer tastes like it smells only better. The malt has great complexity ranging from bready to earthy to sweet. Cinnamon, anise, ginger and other holiday spices play perfectly with the hints of cocoa and the dark fruity esters from the yeast. Bitterness from the hops is in perfect harmony with the complexity and bite of the malt and spices.
A perfect example of a winter warmer, with a silky smooth feel and just a hint of warmth.

A: Pours a clear, almost opaque deep mahogany in color with moderate amounts of active visible carbonation rising from the bottom of the glass and moderate to significant ruby red colored highlights. The beer has a two finger tall dense foamy tan head that slowly reduces to a couple of small to medium sized patches of medium thick film surrounded by a large patch of thin film covering the remainder of the surface of the beer and a thin ring at the edges of the glass. Significant amounts of lacing are observed.

S: Moderate aromas of caramel + toasted + bready malts with a light to moderate amount of caramel sweetness as well as moderate aromas of dark fruity yeast (cherry) and spices (anise, cinnamon, cardamon, ginger, and pine). Hints of earthy + herbal hop aromas.

T: Upfront there are slightly stronger than moderate flavors of caramel + toasted + bready malts with a light to moderate amount of caramel sweetness and some flavors reminiscent of brown bread. That is followed by moderate flavors of dark fruity yeast (cherry) and spices (anise, cinnamon, cardamon, ginger, and pine). Light flavors of herbal + earthy hops which impart a light amount of bitterness which fades quickly leaving a spicy dark fruit flavor lingering.

M: Slightly heavier than medium bodied with moderate amounts of carbonation. Smooth.

O: Probably one of my favorite examples of the styles - wonderful flavors that remind me of fruitcake soaked in rum (and therefore the holidays). Drinks easily for the style + strength. Very enjoyable.

Look - a dark ruby with a khaki head that has excellent retention and dense long legs.
Smell - caramel, brown sugar, pine resin, figs, and sweet bread.
Taste - follows the nose, but the bitter pine resin hops are surprisingly strong and linger in the aftertaste. There are also some notes of cherry and vanilla as it warms.
Feel - high carbonation, thick somewhat chewy body for the ABV, and completely smooth.
