Poured a brownish red, almost mahogany color with 3-to-4 fingers of khaki tan head. Sporadic spots of lacing all around the sides. Average-to-above average retention on the top.
Smelled dark fruits, dark sour cherry, plum, dark raspberry and black cherry first, then got wintery spices - nutmeg, molasses, caramel, gingerbread and cinnamon. What a mix.
Tasted more what I was expecting with the wintry mix. Got nutmeg, cinnamon, gingerbread and molasses. Sour notes were still there with dark grape, bourbon, black cherry and sour cherry.
Medium body. Oily-to-creamy texture. Average carbonation. Long warming finish.
A very good and unusual winter beer. Would love to try it again.
