Rather so-so attempt at a winter warmer. Caramel flavour, but no real body to it for me.

EdInSaltLake (672) - Salt Lake City, Utah, USA - JAN 16, 2014
Toasty, toffee, sweet malt aroma. Caramel, sweet, bread crust, and toasted malt flavor. A little fruity. Spices are in the aroma and flavor, but not a ton--probably just about right. Maybe allspice and cinnamon?

Tap at the base of Peak 9 at Breckenridge on a powder day. Pours clear dark copper/amber with creamy beige head. Aroma is cookie and caramel malts, fig, burnt toffee, chestnuts, and light woody notes. Flavor is dry malts forward with a touch of sweetbread that quickly dries out to woody notes and hop bitterness; dry and bitter finish that lingers. Medium body and carbonation.
