3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle pours deep dark amber, almost brown, medium frothy off-white head, attractive lacing, with light carbonation. Musty, malty, peppery nose. Smooth hop bitterness up front, some licorice, with a malty backbone. Some odd hemlock like tree flavor as well, or is it sagebrush? Medium body and mouthfeel. Light spices emerge on the finish. Fairly smooth, not as hopped up as I would have thought. Finishes herbish, slight hop, minor malt, semi-sweet.   Very different from most other Winter seasonals I have had.

Bottle. Pours midnight red, the head quite big and not going anywhere. There’s a big chestnutty aroma here. This drinks with a full-bodied character, overflowing with cooked sugar, pine bark, and varnish. (#4879, 12/30/2012)

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
The beer pours a dark brown color with a small white head. The aroma is caramel and toffee malt with some holiday spices: mainly nutmeg but a few other spices are mixed in as well. The flavor is full of holiday spices and caramel, as well as quite a bit of grassy and piney hops. This is definitely a highly-hopped winter warmer. The alcohol is also present and seems like it is higher than 7 percent. Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation. Not bad.
