How apt for this horrible winter. It also is slightly past the best by date, but I never pay attention to those. Whatever.

It pours a beautiful brown with little head. The aroma is wonderful - a malty, hoppy combo (mostly malty) that is very appealing.

The taste is of a bitter brown ale - very nice. It is more bitter than you might expect for a brown, and not as sweet and not at all spiced, like other warmers. It also is not boozy (enough) for a warmer. The aftertaste grows on you. It's bitter brown and unique.

The sentiment sucks - Never summer. It's how it feels, even as we get our first thaw in two months. Lake Erie is an ice block and I am not going to the Caribbean again until next month. At least we have great beers like this to keep us warm.
