Pours a clear dark amber with a lasting, one finger white head. Immediately hit with chocolate with caramel and dry roasted coffee. Pretty good on this cold evening.

Courtesy of markwise. Pours deep dark amber with thin off white head. The aroma is a bit spicy with cinnamon and winter spices to go along with graham cracker, some caramel and breadiness. The taste has lots of winter spices (mostly cinnamon) followed by sweet malts and a thin layer of malt roastiness. This is a decent enough mild winter brew but not really equipped to deal with a real winter.

Local Belmont bottle. This was pretty nice overall. Maybe a little heavy and darker than expected. The ginger really added some spice to it as well. Fine.

Bottle. Gifted. Malt and light hop presence. A little bitter, pretty sweet. Spice and cinnamon/sugar. Pine, ginger definitely. Not bad. Good winter ale, could be a session beer, but the sweetness is too much for me
