Deep reddish brown with light brown head. Aroma is grainy brown sugar and some roasted barley. Flavor is grainy with some roasted notes. A good bitterness. A little sweetness creeps in at the end.

Transfer from BA review on 1-2-13- Served on tap in a pint glass Appearance – The beer was served a deep brown color, nearly black with a tiny tan head floating on the top of the surface. The head faded very fast, leaving only a light level of lacing behind. Smell- The aroma of the beer is a mix of roasted malt and spices. The roast is dark and has hints of chocolate and coffee, with the mix of spices being heaviest of Christmas aromas, with hints of allspice cinnamon, nutmeg and ginger. Taste – The taste begins with a roasted flavor with a more subtle spice flavor at first. The spices however soon get quite strong with flavors of nutmeg, allspice and ginger becoming quite potent. While the spices increase, subtle chocolate and coffee flavors comes to the tongue. In the end some light orange peel flavors mix with the rest to produce a quite spiced roast flavor to linger on the tongue. Mouthfeel – The carbonation of the brew was rather on the low side with a body that is on the thicker and creamier side. Both are quite nice for the spiced and roasted flavors of the brew. Overall –A pretty decent brew with a nice blend of spice of roast.

On tap at the brewpub. Pours a dark brown with a thick tan head. Aroma of lots of spices including nutmeg, cinnamon, and allspice, bitter chocolate malt, light roasted malt. Flavor of lots of bitter chocolate, roasted malt, and wintery spices. Very nice winter ale- sturdy chocolate malt backbone and fairly heavy spicing. 8/4/8/4/14 (3.8/5)

UPDATED: MAR 6, 2011 Sampled on draft at the brewpub this beer poured a black color with a small tan head that left some lacing. The aroma was Dr. Peper, anise and nutmeg. The flavor was malty and roasty with notes of coffee, cocoa, licorice and Dr. Pepper. The finish was long, dry, roasty and spicy. Medium body. Ok.

On tap at the brewpub. Struggled with this one. Pours a darker mahogany-black. Aromas give away the intense spice burden. Flavors wade through murk and mire. The stout body is absent and this beer misses both a good hearty texture and really solid, satisfying charred, toasted, roasted, and dark roast characters. Then, the spices bowls over with a candied or mulled sensation that just edges over gimicky. Tough to finish, unfortunately.
