Poured from a 12 oz. can into my magic hat keg glass.
A - Looks like a fireplace. It's a vivid, dark red with half a finger of snowy head, lots of lacing, and ashy-looking flakes of particulate suspended in it.
S - A very fresh, clean pine hops smell but not much more.
T - A muted slap of pine and bitterness balanced out quite well by the fresh grain flavor of the malt following it. Doesn't finish nearly as dry as I expected, and leaves only a subtle aftertaste. Drinks like a robust red ale but achieves the feeling of a winter warmer. It's neither hop forward nor malt forward, achieving a nice happy medium. A unique palate experience.
M - Good carbonation and definitely not weighty on the tongue. Despite the hoppy bite at the start, it doesn't dry out your mouth. Feels fresh and clean.
Overall - Very drinkable at 7% ABV and carries just the right flavor profile for a winter brew. Might be a bit pricey for a 4-pack of 12 ouncers, but you wouldn't go wrong buying it.
