I guess they also celebrate winter with this beer! Tap. Copper with a light head. Cinamon cookie or cake aroma is quiet but nice. Flavour starts with alcohol and cinamon cake. Then picks up to a oool higher level like a Christmas rum cake.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Draft - Pratt St. Ale House. Dark amber, creamy off white head. Toasted citric and earth tones warm to lighter swirls of cherry toffee and cereal grains throughout. Zesty citric-earth hop bitterness is well rounded with nutty toffee and grain-like finish. Just a dollop of cherry in the background. Full bodied, soft carbonation, bittersweet finish. Very well done and certainly worth seeking out...
