3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Tallahassee, Fl - on tap at the brewpub. Dark copper pour, light off-white head, thin for the style. Neutral aroma with hints of spiced apples. Flavor has some hints of nutmeg, brown sugar and a bubble-gum back end. Mouthfeel is a bit thinner than expected. Overall, not bad, just missing that ooomph that I look for in a winter warmer.

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Dark tea-colored pour, one finger beady tan head, mostly clear. Lively, sweet-spicy, fruity aroma -- like spiced apples. Flavor gave me a woody dubbel impression -- not as sweet as it smells. Toasted allspice. Medium body, allspice finish.
