A- Limited head quickly dissipates over a brown ale. Slight effervescence continues throughout the drinking experience.

S- As it warms, the baking spice autumnal smells come through. A pleasant smelling beer.

T- Stays in keeping with the smell, not overpowering with any booze flavor. At the colder temp, the flavors aren't too pronounced. (Probably intensifies and smooths out as it warms up)

M- A little thin for a high alcohol ale, no burn present.

O- Definitely a drink that I should have left on my counter for a while before drinking it. I'm not running to the store to get another but I certainly wouldn't turn one down if it were offered to me.
