    Pours transparent sepia with a thick though effervescent tan head. Aroma presents dark fruit, caramel and toasted malt tones, enough to make the mouth go Pavlov. More caramel comes forth in the taste, along with some spicy and woody hop tones. Texture features good body, if not much fizz. Another beer for my Beer Advent - some days I am having winter/holiday beers I’ve had before.

    A dark ruby-brown colored beer with a big, frothy textured, light tan head rising above. There's decent hang time on the head. It settles into a creamy thick ringlet. Light muted molasses and spice that come forth bolder in the tasting. Some dark fruit, molasses and maybe little more cinnamon and nutmeg than I'd prefer but smooth and drinkable.
