2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
12 ounce bottle - $1.99 at Total Wine & More in Greenville, South Carolina.
Appearance: Pours a very dark, deep red-hued body with a very small, beige head.
Smell: Tangy-scented, almost berry-ish nose. Deep toast. Spicy touches of ginger, dried orange and cinnamon stand out. Smells alright, smell okay.
Taste: Sweetish, bready and toasty malt tastes with a touch of grain and sweet iced tea. Satisfactory spice blend, but it’s underneath a somewhat uninteresting, unappealing layer of maltiness.
Mouthfeel: Medium-bodied. Medium carbonation.
Overall: The beer looks nice enough. All downhill from there, unfortunately.

2.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Light brown / medium-dark amber color with red tones.
Heavy malt character, no hop or spices are evident to MD.
FLAVOR- slightly malty. Like the nose no hop or ’warming’ spices you commonly smell/taste in winter beers as of late. There is a different, neither good nor bad, flavor that I can’t identify.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle Fairly clear redish brows with a fine and lasting tan head. Mild winter spice in the aroma, mostly brown also in the flavor. Some spiciness but barely enough to be biled as a winter ale/warmer/gingerbread. Still, decent
