Deep amber color with a average-sized, lasting, cream-colored head. I picked up a strong malty/sweet aroma that overpowered some of the winter spices I was hoping to smell. The spices came through a bit more at first taste, but give way quickly to smooth toffee/caramel flavor. A bit lighter and milder than other winter ales Ive had.
