Presented in a 22oz. bomber. Poured a deep, glowing ruby color with a medium off white head with medium retention. Aroma is of sweet sticky candy, not very strong but I assume it will grow while it warms. Despite the sweet smell the flavor was surprisingly not oversweet at all. Very nicely balanced, with barley malts on the forefront, finishing with a piney hop bite, and a little extra spiciness throughout. Mouthfeel has moderate carbonation and is medium-heavy in body. Excellent ale for the winter, very warming and definetely very drinkable!
