3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Courtesy of markwise. Pours deep dark amber with thin off white head. The aroma is a bit spicy with cinnamon and winter spices to go along with graham cracker, some caramel and breadiness. The taste has lots of winter spices (mostly cinnamon) followed by sweet malts and a thin layer of malt roastiness. This is a decent enough mild winter brew but not really equipped to deal with a real winter.

Local Belmont bottle. This was pretty nice overall. Maybe a little heavy and darker than expected. The ginger really added some spice to it as well. Fine.

Bottle. Gifted. Malt and light hop presence. A little bitter, pretty sweet. Spice and cinnamon/sugar. Pine, ginger definitely. Not bad. Good winter ale, could be a session beer, but the sweetness is too much for me

Bottle thanks to DrSilverworm. Murky dark brown pour with a small head that fades to a ring and leaves some lacing. Aroma is mostly winter spices with some caramel and red fruit mixed in. Tastes like ginger, cinnamon, allspice, caramel, apples, and dark fruit. Not as overly spiced as some winter ales but it’s still a little more than I’d like. Medium body. Decent winter ale.
