Good strong aroma. Tons of molasses, booze, nutmeg, hops and a dank, after the rain type of smell that just works here. Amber color with a huge off white head. Tastes like hazelnuts, molasses, gingerbread and pumpkin pie spice with a slight hop presence in the aftertaste. Winter in a glass. At 7.8%, I don’t know if I would call it a winter warmer, but this one was very good. Props for being unique; I don’t know if I’ve ever had another beer like this.

A good all day winter beer. Malty sweet. A little bit of spice in the nose and just right at the finish.

Delicious & perfect for the holidays. The aroma is full of hops but the flavor is creamy & smooth! So drinkable at nearly 8%. Definitely recommended for the style & very good overall!

Draught. This is a spicy winter warmer that has lots going on. But overall it is not bad.
