Tap. Pours a nice dark caramel with no head. Aroma is somewhat sweet. Bartender told me this was a mead mixed with something. Weird spices, black licorice on the tongue. Black licorice fucking hammered my senses.

On tap at the Cisco Brew Pub, Boston Logan Airport. An attractive copper colour with a ring of cream head that laced the glass nicely; spicy malt aroma; smooth with a caramel taste; and a dry finish with a touch of spice. Warming and satisfying.

Cloudy copper pour. Thin head. Sweet and spiced aroma, typical for class. Somewhat bland for a Winter beer but enjoyable.

Bottle poured a red highlighted brown color with a thin cap of off white head. Aroma has a pleasant hop profile, mild spices, and sweet malts. Mouth feel is medium and the carbonation on the lower side. Flavor again has an interesting hop, sweet malt, spices, and a clean finish.

1/19/14. 12oz bottle thanks to Aurelius! I can’t believe I haven’t rated this before. I am beginning to have some weird suspicions that certain ratings are getting deleted. Oh well. Clearish amber red pour with a small khaki head that fades. Malty aroma, light spiciness, some tinny aspects. Malty flavor, a hint of spice, metallic, and a dose of what remind me of ketchup. Meh.

UPDATED: JAN 14, 2014 Bottle- copper/burgundy. Translucent with visible carbonation. Pours to a small, off white head. Its smells piney and hoppy. it reminds me of summer and Christmas. Its a good brew. Easy to drink. Overall I would choose a different winter brew, but it is still a dang good beer.

12oz bottle. Deep red-brown body, looks unfilterd. Lacy off-white/beige head. Spicy ginger cinnamon allspice aroma. While it is spicy, the big malts really reign it in. Hefty, but drinkable full body. Solid offering.

Simply a Sharknado of winter warmers. Surfers do not exist on the eastern front... only crazy posers. watery and meh combined. Equals wannabe.
