Pours a hazy copper on tap with thin tan head and good lacing. Aroma of caramel and toffee malts with and a hint of spice. Taste follows, clean finish, spice kind of falls off quick. One of the better highland beers I have had.

davey101 (750) - Connecticut, USA - JAN 21, 2013
22 oz bomber into a DFH signature glass. Thanks to sommersb. A - Pours a clear dark red body. Very attractive off white head with large bubbles. Nice lacing and retention. S - Light toffee and bready malts, nutty with a touch of fruit and spice. A bit muddled but quite nice for a winter warmer. T - Clean caramel and bready malts with some faint spices and berries. Nice combination of flavors. M - Medium bodied with nice carbonation. Highly drinkable. O - Not generally a style I go after, but this was a very well made beer. I noticed it has hazelnut, raspberry, and cranberry extracts as well as cinnamon and vanilla listed on the ingredient list. Its a bit hard to discern each ingredient but they do work together to produce a nice taste of winter.
