The bottle is elegant, but I wish it were dark glass instead of clear.
The label is understated and classy. This looks like a quality beer.
As soon as I started pouring, the aromas hit the room. It has a clear amber colour, like buckwheat honey. The head was moderate and settled quickly, leaving pretty lacing throughout the drink.
The smell is right up there. I picked up on a variety of aromas as soon as I started pouring, before getting the glass up to my nose. Right off the top, there is a pine resin, caramel, toffee, vanilla flavour. Like a candy factory. The hops and bitters showed up as an afterthought. The effervescence is moderate.
The taste is a bit too sweet for me. The flavours are just like the aromas. As the beer warms up, more complex tastes come through. Let's see... woody oak, smoke, vanilla, some malt, a weak bitterness, slight alcohol burn.
Mouthfeel is smooth, with a medium body. The carbonation is surpisingly good, and leaves a long finish.
Drinkability is something else. This is a nice warmer for a nightcap, or to have while sitting in your big chair with a good book and your favourite background music. -Not a session beer. It's quite acceptable, but not my favourite. I would not turn down a free one.
