Draft, just 2 weeks ago. From notes. Loads of caramel and baking spices. Just wondering if this is fresh of "vintage" from last year. Either way, itís still good.

It poured a crystal clear amber color with thick head and nice lacing. Smell was super sweet with loads of caramel, some citrus, apple, ginger, coriander, chocolate, and rich honey. Taste was nice as well. Super malty with nice bready notes, slight grapefruit, cinnamon and ginger. Mouthfeel was medium, slick, and drying. I had a great time drinking it.

chinchill (1801) - South Carolina, USA - APR 19, 2014
12 oz bottle served in a goblet. Body is deep amber-copper with excellent clarity. Head has poor retention. Smells and tastes like a spicy brown ale. The spice mix says winter holidays and, while obvious and too strong for some ales, is not so powerful as to mask the solid caramel and medium roast malts used in this ale. Medium body with medium-light carbonation.

Aroma is cinnamon, mild/medium ginger and malts. The flavor is cinnamon, mild ginger, malts, slight heat, fruit and a tart/slightly tangy finish.

12 oz bottle. Pours dark, clear amber with a short, slightly off-white head. Aroma is caramel malt with Christmas spices like nutmeg and cinnamon. Taste is slightly sweet with hints of clove and cinnamon. Medium body. Finish is a bit oily and warming.

This is a fantastic beer with great taste and a great finish. Itís awesome right out of the bottle or for an extra treat you can rim a glass with cinnamon and sugar.
