3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
UPDATED: NOV 30, 2014 Aunt Linda freebie. Aroma: Bready caramel aroma; decent cinnamon presence with a touch of citrus. Appearance: Rich copper color with lively carbonation supporting a foamy bone head that settles into a thick skin. Flavor: Subdued up front with more bread than anything; spices become more apparent toward the finish, especially the citrus. Malts take on a touch of nuttiness here and there. Palate: Medium body, sticky texture, lively carbonation, slightly astringent finish. Overall: Completely decent winter seasonal; would drink again but not seek out on my own. Like a spiced bock, really.

From bottle, smoky, malty aroma, medium brown color with white head, a little malty taste up front, followed with cascade of ginger, cinnamon, and other herby/vegetal flavor. Followed with slight hoppy finish and some malt at end. Tasty.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draft pour. Pours a dark amber color with a wet, malty aroma. Pretty good, easy drinking beer here, that is definitely a winter beer. Bold flavors all throughout with mild spices and toasty flavor. Medium body with a somewhat empty finish. I’m not put off by this I any way. Pretty good beer.

For me did not hit any of the flavor notes it claims to have. Did not get any of the spices or orange. Still a decent beer for winter. But not as described. Wouldn't buy it again.
