Pours a dark brown cola color with amber highlights, clear, with a one finger, almond colored head, comprised of small bubbles. Dissipates quickly, and any lacing quickly followes suit. A distinct ring of foam is always present, however.

On the nose, this smells truly excellent. Rich and spicy, everything from cinnamon to chocolate to nutmeg to molasses. Sweet malts. I begin to drool...

Sweet taste, followed very quickly by rich, toasted malts, not too unlike roasted nuts. Caramel, toffee, this really follows the nose quite well, and adds some complexity of it's own. A little grainy, bready... The aftertaste is what I am really diggin'... kinda the same taste that slightly burnt toast will leave with 'ya-I like it! Alcohol is noticeable, but melded in quite nicely for that warm feel.

I find this to be a bit thin for a WW, but it is smooth. As it warms, I do find that it seems to become a bit more syrupy-ish, yum. Carbonation is tingly on the tongue, and it has a nice dry feel in the aftertaste.

You know, I think I have a new favorite Winter Warmer! Now, WW's are not one of my favorite stylings, but this is a pleasant, relaxing, warming type of Belgian Brown, and I am totally into it! Glad I have a growler of it, cold and snowy tonight... Cheers!
