Not a bad beer. Flavor hits early and then disappears at the end. Decent flavor. Nice caramel color.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle... Poured dark, amber/mahogany with an off-white head. Aroma of dark fruits, caramel, and barley. Mild bitterness and overall a hearty ale. Lacked a lot of good complexities you may expect in a nice winter seasonal. Hops created a mild resinous and spiced quality with a big malt balance. Pretty standard, bordering a supped up amber ale.

A wicked spicy winter warmer. Not only alot of hops but really complimentary amount and selection of spices, really good.

My jackass roommate bought me a pint of this for my birthday and had the barmaid put whipped cream on it. Luckily he also had a pint so I got to sample it unadulterated and it was pretty solid.
