Tap at Rattle’n’Hum. I should have stopped before I hit the flight of 10% Winter Warmers after 12 other CCB beers, but I did not. Big, spicy, herbal aroma, with toast, lemon, vanilla. Full, brandy-forward flavor, wort, caramel, cookie. Spicing is mild and complimentary.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Tap at Rattle n Hum: Muddy purple pour with a fading head. Bright coriander dominates the aroma. Has a sweet floral note as well. A touch plasticy (probably phenols) and a touch of toffee-like maltose. Slick body. The flavor is toffeeish and honey like in it’s richness. The coriander brightens up the high gravity body. A bit oily, one dimensional.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Very sweet and malty. Rich grain flavor with a bit of tang and spiciness (provided by the coriander, no doubt). A little sour-sweet juiciness. Good, but a little too sweet for me to really love it.
