Dark brown with medium tab head. Roasted malt and winter spice aromas. Taste is lots of roasty malt and pie or cookie spices. A bit sweet, a bit bitter. A bit like German lebkuchen. Pleasant winter beer and not to bad in July either.

12oz can. Poured a deep amber, almost brown color with a large sized off white head. Lots of spices ... I’m not an overall crazy spice type of guy and these spices did not agree with me.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Pours dark red light brown. Big spiced aroma of cinnamon, prune, and nutmeg. Sips medium full with a strong dark fruit malty presence. Hop balance is solid with a moderate hop bitterness that is evident in the finish. The hop flavor is more strong than in most winter beers with a nice resiny earthy tone. Slight coffee notes as well that ljnger. Hop bitterness plus medium carbonation make this a very dry and attenuated winter spiced beer. My type of winter brew!

A- Pours a deep, dark, reddish black hue with a nice, frothy 1.5 finger off white head.
S- Sweet maltiness, mixed spices, cinnamon, coriander, clove.
T- Indistinct sweetness off the bat followed by clove and cinnamon. Finishes with a slight malt liquor flavor that is a bit offputting
M- Medium bodied with medium/high carbonation.
D- Definitely a decent winter warmer. A bit one dimensional and the alcohol in the finish makes it seem bigger than it is.

Reminds me of some if the Pumpkin Ale's that come out in the Fall. Not a bad tasting beer, but only one is enough.
