Picked up the last of a case of singles of this beer at my local establishment. Can't wait to indulge.

Appearance: Pours an amber, dark, robust, tangerine rust. Leaves behind a sensible, half-inch froth of head and nice overall lacing. Pretty inviting with it's robust coloring.

Smell: Has a great sense of caramel flavorings and moderate spices that really bring out the essences. Some fruity flavors also compliment this beer well. Mild aroma of malts comes together.

Taste: Very good bitterness comes along with a mild tang of citrus hops and some roasted malts. Some brown sugar seems to linger with the aftertaste.

Mouthfeel: Has medium carbonation with a quite nice medium body.

Overall: Actually enjoyed this beer, but it did lack a few minor qualites of individuality. This beer was good, but reminded me of every other winter-warm type of beers like Sierra Nevada's Celebration. Wasn't exactly thrilled with the results. I did enjoy it however, but it would've been better if there was a hint of difference. I may try again, but most likely will stick to a more familiar beer with similar taste. Only reason this beer was given a reasonable score was due to the fact it fit well in the category. Cheers!.
