3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Typical amber ale aroma, with something spicey besides, perhaps a bit of vanilla. Reddish copper color with a white head that rose and fell. Medium to full in body with creamy carbonation. Flavor is caramel, nutty, clove?, definitely spice things. The finish is fairly dry, and there is enough spice to balance any residual sweets. Not a lot of hop bitter. Decent drink, but not a typical highly flavored winter beast.

Bottle from Party Source.
Pours clear dark amber color with a moderate frothy off-white head that was mostly lasting with fair lacing. Moderate sweet roasted malty aroma. Medium body with a thin texture and soft carbonation. Medium roasted sweet flavor with a medium grainy sweet finish of an average duration.
My expectation where not met.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
(2002) Clear golden body with medium white head. Aroma is light, slightly grassy. Flavor is smooth, moderately sweet, slight biscuit and grassiness. All I can think of for calling this a winter seasonal is context -- Louisiana’s winters are very mild, so maybe their winter seasonals are more akin to anyone else’s fall seasonal.
