On tap at the brewery. Ad dark reddish pour. It’s on the sweet side, but very smooth. A good dose of chocolate to it. I bought a growler.

Really tasty winter ale. Notes of brown sugar and some coriander. Dark appearance with dark tan head that quickly dissipates. Good sipper on very cold days. Not a good summer beer.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Can. Pours opaque black with a medium tan head that lasts a while and laces well. Aroma is spice-forward, too spiced. Underlying notes of chocolate, toffee, and dark fruits. Flavor is pretty sweet, heavy malty, lots of dark sugars and fruitcake fruits, along with vanilla and a touch of maraschino cherry. Cinnamon and other spices; thankfully no clove. Medium body. A bit overboard, IMO.

3.9 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Can... Pours murky and dark brown with a small, creamy, khaki head. The aroma is malty, sweet and spicy - vanilla, hazelnut, cinnamon, milk candy and candied nuts. Full-bodied with a creamy mouthfeel and moderate carbonation. The flavor is sweet and chocolatey up front; roasty and moderately bitter on the backside. Very nice. Can courtesy of BVery!
