Nutty, solid maltiness. Smooth, slightly dry hops balance it out nicely. I've never been disappointed in Samuel Smith's beers and this one continued the trend. An easy to drink beer that goes perfectly with almost anything, especially as the temperatures dip.

Nice caramel color with a rich, long-lasting head. Malty, nutty aroma. Rich and malty on the palate with caramel and maple sweetness. Hints of roasted nuts. Subtle earthy hop to balance. Mild spices. Very well balanced. Medium bodied and incredibly smooth. Very easy to drink. Just an all around stellar winter ale.
