Pours a nice dark brown with a minimal head. Smells of spice and sweet malt, nothing huge. Taste is sweet, reminds me of a malty brown ale with some spice overtones. A medium mouthfeel, nothing out of the ordinary. Overall a bit different, but a decent winter ale.

The smell is a deep but light strong ale smell. The color and look is a deep brown or dark Amber appearance. Overall tast is amazing. It hits a barley and malt flavor but inviting with a sweet mellow bourbon; with a hint of fig. Like a fig Newton without the cookie but sweetened. Not as sweet as sweetened dates. However, a fig with a sweet hint of licorice. Overall, "mind blowing"!!
