Appearance - Pours a dark reddish brown with an off-white, finger width head. Good retention. Leaves a nice, sticky lacing on the glass.
Smell - Sweet aroma, consisting of caramel, toffee, fig, and slight toasted malts.
Taste - More hoppy on the tongue than in the nose. Toasted bread, with lesser notes of caramel and toffee. Fruity esters, hitting on fig, then a nice citrus hop comes through mid-taste and takes the reigns for the finish.
Mouthfeel - Medium body with a bit of stickiness. Fair carbonation. Finishes dry.
Overall - This is a solid winter seasonal, though I'm a bit perplexed at labeling this a "double alt" when I've had standard alts with just as much flavor and ABV. Still, I'm enjoying the brew, and may be a future purchase.
