A moderately aggressive pour from a 2010/11 550ml bottle into my pint glass produced a manageable 2+ fingers of multi-density tan head. Head had good retention and leaves plenty of sticky lace on the sides of the glass. Nearly opaque, this cloudy brew is a very dark brown.
The aroma is quite earthy and rather hoppy, with notes of caramel, citrus and vanilla.
T - This is a rich and complex brew, as is should be given that it is a winter seasonal made with 15 ingredients. The most noticeable characteristics are the very earthy richness, a complex hop component (derived from Newport, Horizon, Simcoe, Centennial, Amarillo, Crystal 90 and Rogue Willamette varieties), and a strong toasted malt flavor. IBU = 68. Great hop/malt balance.
Mouthfeel - perfectly carbonated. Carbonation and hops impart some crispness. Near full bodied. Approaches a semi-dry finish.
O - Hops are more evident in the aroma than the taste, where the rich malt flavor dominates without masking the hop component. Mogul Madness is a smooth and delicious brew you can think of as either a winter warmer or a brown PA. In any case very flavorful and interesting without being challenging. Highly recommended year around.
