Only thing that this beer really needs is more spices. The cloves are a bit light, and more nutmug would help.
Pours a clear copper with a nice persistent off white hed.
Spicy citric hop nose. Faint caramel sweetness in the background, but most all hops on the nose. As one would expect with a winter warmer.
Flavor starts with an big bitterness bite. Hop profile follows the nose. Peppery spiciness. Citric notes. Lemon rinds and such. Minimal sweetness while still having a solid, full body. Plenty of spices. Flavor will surely improve with age.
Full and clean on the mouthfeel, with a mildly bitter finish.
Overall a superb beer. Even if it was hoppier last year.
