12 ounce bottle - $1.99 at Total Wine & More in Greenville, South Carolina.

Appearance: Pours a very dark, deep red-hued body with a very small, beige head.

Smell: Tangy-scented, almost berry-ish nose. Deep toast. Spicy touches of ginger, dried orange and cinnamon stand out. Smells alright, smell okay.

Taste: Sweetish, bready and toasty malt tastes with a touch of grain and sweet iced tea. Satisfactory spice blend, but it's underneath a somewhat uninteresting, unappealing layer of maltiness.

Mouthfeel: Medium-bodied. Medium carbonation.

Overall: The beer looks nice enough. All downhill from there, unfortunately.

Medium brown pour with little head. Not much of a nose but a hint of winter spice (clove, cinnamon, etc.), which really shows itself in the flavor with a strong malty backbone. Though I wouldn't say the spice character is overwhelming, as it can be in some winter ales. Same can be said of the sweetness which can be cloying in comparable attempts at a moderately strong winter beer.
