From tap at walnut grill. BEAUTIFUL color, first off. Leah had this one, and so much was going on at dinner that she doesn't have much to stay about this one except she really enjoyed it!

Poured best by 5/2017 .. 12 oz and its a bottle conditioned ale !

Look is perfect. Huge light tan head 2 finger by my count. Light red/brownish hue in color. Translucent. Leaves crazy lacing on my glass.

Aroma is huge. I get toffee, brown sugar, allspice, cinnamon, light piney hops.

Taste follows the nose, imagine that. Light roast and brown sugary malt. Some medium level of astringency as expected.. a small amount of lingering bitterness that sticks around for a little while.

Mouthfeel is a bit dryer / mild than I care for in a winter warmer. Drinks almost like an english mild.. which to me is great as it improves how fast it goes down.. smooth..... not so much for the true "style" so a few points dinged here.

Overall this is a must try and one of the best. It is a LOT Less spice and holiday cheer than most popular winter warmers so if thats your thing you will be disappointed. But I'm not. Cheers to Deschutes for brewing such a marvel.

A-very dark brown with a thin layer of dark khaki colored head that leaves a bit of lacing around the top

S-nice aroma of caramel malt, spices, and finishes with dark fruit sweetness

T-caramel malt backbone with some roasted coffee, chocolate, spices, and a slight bitter finish

M-medium body and moderate carbonation

Overall very drinkable, one of the better winter warmer beers out there

Nice dark brownish color poured with a little head. Nose chocolate, spice, berries, toffee. Taste is cocoa, dried fruit, cinnamon, clove, roasted caramel malts. Nice strong finish. A textbook winter beer. Dark, bold, and satisfying. Just wish it was colder to enjoy more.

First as it pours, as illustrious as dark
Tints of garnet with a lush cherry bark
A foam that won't quit, tan and unwaving
Telling you now that every sip you'll be saving

A ripe, pithy smell of plum, raisin, and roots
Like winter bottled with the most earthy of fruits
Some baker's chocolate rounds it out well
That you cant quite grasp until you give it a smell.

And the flavor- Oh, the flavor, is where it really shines
With first flavors of cherry Cola and the reddest wines
They give way to amaretto, espresso, and anise
A combination of flavors that surely aims to please

Despite the low strength, it drinks as if more ornate
Enjoyed by the yule log after an amorous date
A great beer indeed, always a true pleasure
One of the best for this season, or any by measure.

Pours a dark brown almost black in appearance. Minimal head and lacing, seemed to fade pretty fast. Smells of cloves, chocolate, some malt, and coffee. Taste is pretty light with a good blend of chocolate, bitterness, little herb taste like cinnamon or cloves, coffee, and a malty alcohol finish. Overall an easy finish and very light beer for a dark winter style. Will need a few more to get full effect but my impression is a decent winter style ale with good flavors. Would buy again.
