Reviewed from memory; served in a red solo cup and shared profusely.

Pours a deep, dark nut-brown with a thin lacy head. Tasted just plain awesome, with thick, sweet notes of molasses and malt with a refreshing evergreen hop bite. Went down smooth and easy despite the ABV. I didn't get to try a whole lot of it for myself, but I'm glad I didn't give it all away!

Picked up a bomber from Total Wine in late October for $4.99. Bottled on 10-3-2014.

Beer poured brown with a nice off white head that is leaving some lacing behind.

Nose is malty, some hints of toasted grains.

Taste is bold but very well balanced. Sweet toasted malts are balanced nicely by citrus and floral hops.

Mouthfeel is medium to full and smooth.

Overall this is a nice seasonal. Unfortunately I did not see that this comes in a sixer format. Will definitely pick up a sixer for next year!

To me this drinks more like a strong ale than an alt. Really enjoyable and the malty sweetness and slight hoppiness paired very well with the halibut I had it with. I've gotten out of the habit of buying Ninkasi, but this was leftover from a six pack that my son in law had bought, so I'm glad he left it! I'd definitely buy this once in a while during the winter season.

This seasonal release poured a nice dark brown. It's nose was a slight nuttiness with a hint of molasses. Strong coffee flavour with some caramel in the mouth as well as some hoppiness that wasn't very prevalent on the nose.
