12 oz. bottle. Pours a mostly clear dark amber with a thin-moderate linen white head that fades to a film by the second sip and leave scant lace. Weak aroma of toffee and not much else. The flavor is equally weak malt along with some even weaker spice and ending with some stale malt. Light bitterness at the finish. Not something I would look to revisit.

Bottle at the 35th Street Bistro. Thank goodness theyre about to overhaul their selection. Poured a dark copper color, with a quickly fizzling head. Tastes like someone took a cheap abbey dubbel and dumped half a Coors Light into it. The toffee is tweaked by breakfast cereal grains and corn. Its far better than a Coors Light... but it reeks of it.

Oscbert (1263) - Lincoln, California, USA - NOV 8, 2012
~Sweet aroma of a touch of cherry candy with raisin and clove spiciness. Sweetness is a bit cloying. ~Pours a clear amberish brown with quickly disappearing head ~Carmel and bread in flavor with very light spice. ~Medium body, medium CO2, sweet bready finish. ~I could drink these, but pretty bland and boring. Uneventful.

Slight wheat balanced with typical winter spices. Nothing super or original here. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

I tried this at a friends request. By itself it was unimpressive, not bad, but nothing to stand out. My friend said he was served this with chocolate powder rimming the glass, like salt on a margherita. I tried it that way and it makes it quite interesting. I am a fan of chocolate stouts so this may play into it. This rating is based on the non-chocolate version.
