3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Beautifully packaged in a large red bottle (2013? BB date stamp of July 2015) with gold-colored wire retaining the cork. Served at a starting temperature of about 45F in a Belgian snifter.
Pours clear and dark; a lovely red-brown color with a small head that displays good retention and coats the glass upon tipping.
Aroma: appealing and faintly sweet and fruity over dark bread.
Flavor: little if any spicing in the winter ale, but some hints of spicing from, I believe, the yeast. Starts lightly sweet and finished mildly bitter. Hints of dark fruits including dried plums and raisins, as well as toffee.
Feel: smooth but a touch too much astringency. Appropriately soft carbonation.

Poured a dark copper red with bits of sediment suspended in the beer. There was a thin 1 inch tan head that disappears to just a film pretty quickly. The aroma had some sweet caramel, spices and a musty yeasty biscuit scent. The beer had a thin texture and a slightly sweet falvor up front. There was a little bit of a carbonation bite, but not too much else going on. The finish was rather dull. Not a very pleasing beer to me
