2.6/5  rDev -29.7%
look: 3.5 | smell: 2.5 | taste: 2.5 | feel: 3 | overall: 2.5

Appearance: 1/4 inch head that goes away quick, clear, reddish/brown in color, high carbonation

Smell: citrus hops, wood, amd toasted malt

Taste: malty at first followed by floral hops, light spice, and some woody taste

Mouthfeel: moderately bitter throughout, light bodied, moderate carbonation

Drinkability: I am not a fan. This is a moderately bitter sipper that has spices that are less pronounced. I have had way better in the style, and would not buy it again for the price.

Live review. Poured from the 22 oz. bottle that I bought at Heinen's in Willoughby Hills, Ohio last week for a price that escapes my memory. Poured into my Samuel Smith pint glass.

A 2 inch light brown head that leaves an intermittant lacing on the inside of the glass as I watch it settle oh so slowly. Body is a dark caramel brown translucent. I really like the abundant head that I can imagine at a ski lodge after a long day on the slopes. 4.5

S Nice medium to dark roast malt with some distant hops to the nose. 3.5

T Medium roast malt flow right from the smell into the taste but the taste has a much higher hops presence than the smell suggested with a bitter, grapefruit bite in the middle third on into the aftertaste. I do not like this unwelcome and unbalanced hops bitterness. It rather ruins a nice smooth Winter Warmer. 2.5

M First third of the taste is rather smooth with that big malt presence but then the bite of hops swarms in and ruins the feel as well as the taste. 2.0

D Driven down by those hops I am afraid. The 22 ounces allowed for about 2 Sam Smith pint glasses and I have finished one in about 10 minutes but it will be difficult to finish the other one. 2.5

Notes: A very good looking beer that is way too bitter for me.

look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 2.5 | feel: 2.5 | overall: 2.5

A: Very dark amber/brown, very cloudy. Thick tan head with nice retention.

S: Caramel, citrus, earthy pine, molasses, fresh hops and smooth malts. Big, heavy, complex aroma. Very mild hints of honey and fruit.

T/M: Smooth pine and hop flavors with some sour caramel malt sweetness. Bitter citrus and hops mixed with a mildly watery overall body. Still a light sense of fruit throughout, yet it's masked by the bitterness and other earthy tones. A bite of citrus follows through to the aftertaste. Watery and bitter mouthfeel.

D: Easy drinkability but this brew is missing a lot. The flavor is well put together but doesn't follow through.
