Poured chilled in standard ale glass.

A: ruddy dark amber color; thin head; decent carbonation; clear;
S: musty up front, then tapers into a very light malt and yeast aroma
T: yummy grape flavors mixed with a good amount of finishing hops; sweet, not bitter; very inviting and delicious; somewhat spiced; overall the flavors are very well balanced
M: thick, mealy

A really nice beer for the winter

You would think with a rating of 81 (at the time--12 Dec 2013) that this would be a marginal beer. This is actually not the case at all. This pours a nice purpulish-red hue...and the taste is smooth and really good. It is a good to-to regular drinking beer....not overly powerful on the abv where you drink a couple and you are smashed and wasted, but it is a good beer...really nice and really drinkable. In my opinion, this beer is better than a lot of the 90+ rated beers out there....

Excellent head especially for a bar pour. Lots of blanketing lace. There's a reddish hue to the dark amber color. It appears to be quite clear.

I smell iron and leftover soup. No typical smells from this style.

The flavor is marked improvement to the smell. There's a strong, deep malt base on the initial sip. The hop is subtle, as if to simply balance the the mild sweetness. The body is full with a moderate level of carbonation.

This is a real mixed bag. When you get by the aroma, the beer stands well on its own.
