Darker than expected pour, very hazy, canít see through it. The thick parts are brown with the thing parts (of the glass) showing a nice amber. Def. looks good. Smells like a mixed drink more than a beer. Toffee and candy. Kind of tastes like a mixed drink. Like a weak spiced rum. Itís spicy the kind of spice that lingers on the tongue a cinnamon kind of hot. Itís sweet as well. Boozy, now that I actually like in a beer or mixed drink. That tongue burn lingers. Okay this isnít bad, itís very different. Itís probably the best thing Iíve had from Nickel Brook. Just doesnít have enough beer characteristics for me.

On tap. Dark amber pour, tight foamy tan head. Aroma is a little band aide, boozy, dark fruit, maple syrup and hints of raisins, clove and orange. Oily medium mouthfeel. Sugary up front with an acidic bitter medium finish. Not great balance, but otherwise enjoyable.

Bottle from the beer mail. Pours a clear deep red with pretty much no head. Smell is slightly sweet, with a bit of spice, cinnamon, ginger, and maybe a tiny bit of grassy hops. Palate is medium bodied with good carbonation. Taste is a bit spicy at first before having a bit of sweetness, which gives way to the ever building spiciness and bitterness. Spiciness lingers for a bit in the aftertaste. Pretty decent, but thereís definitely better winter warmers.
