Draught. This is a fun and spicy brew that is as good in July as it is in December.

12 oz bottle served in a pint glass. Pours dark reddish amber with thin lacy off white head. Aroma is roasty sweet caramel malt. Taste is clean sweet toasty malt with a mild amount of earthy hops on the back. Finishes bitter. Easily noticeable abv, just enough to balance all the malt, which dominates here.

12oz bottle in a snifter. Pours dark brown with a lacy, beige head. Aroma of dark malts with caramel, chocolate, and light roasted notes plus some light spices and some floral hops. Flavor the same with a nice blend of everything. Average texture. Not a bad beer.

Hmm, surprisingly uninteresting. The pour is a nice deep copper with a tan head that leaves some lacing. The aroma is where this beer begins to fall a little flat. It has some faint malt aroma but no spice and it certainly doesnít scream a holiday brew. The taste is malt heavy with maybe a touch of hops in the finish. Itís simply just to bland for me - drinkable but less than spectacular!

A - Pours a very dark brown. A descent light tan head that S - Dark chocolate, molasses, roasted dark malt, captain crunch cereal, brown sugar, raisins, T - Roasted malts/dark cocoa come first. The dark cocoa seems to stick on the tongue all the way through. Then brown sugar, woody roasted grain, raisins, faint spice. A candy grape "Now & Later" flavor resides in the background. It sounds weird but it actually provides a subtle tartness. Citrus hops open up and add bitterness at the end. M - Moderate carbonation. Syrupy yet creamy. One of my favorite winter warmers. Not a ton of spice in this one which adds to the drinkability. The hops balance out the syrupy sweetness without overtaking it. Highly recommended! Serving type: bottle 12-13-2010

On tap at Tapwerks. Pours a clear brown with a touch of amber and a brown head that dissipates slowly to the edges. Aroma has earthy grains and light spice with a hint of grassy hops. Flavor is similar with earthy dark grains and light spice but not much of a hop profile.

Sample from a bottle at Cincinnati Winter Beer Fest (CWBF) 2013. Last one of the night. Kind of rushed this one, a drunk friend had just spilled beer on my notebook and I was writing around the wet spots. Clear brown. Decent khaki head. Spice, toasted malts. Smooth, ligther carbonation. More dry texture. Moderate spice. Solid spice ale. Light bitter. Light sweet.
