12oz bottle into tulip; I don't have a slender cylinder.

A: Pours a very dark reddish-brown, with only the faintest bit of translucency to accentuate the color. A finger's worth of head quickly dissipates, leaving several soap-like bubbles clinging to the edge. Faint carbonation ever so slightly disturbs the surface at the center. As the volume of liquid decreases, more light is let through and an attractive orange hue reveals itself. Perhaps if I'd had a Stange I could've enjoyed the color through the whole glass.

S: Sweet malts, dark fruit—raisins. Mild, though.

T: Malts give way to sweet dark fruits, and the finish clings to my upper palate: hoppy, here. As the beer warms, the hops calm and I pick up a flavor of orange peel to accompany the color.

M: Refreshing amount of carbonation and not too heavy or thick; all pleasant surprises.

O: Really enjoyable after warming a bit; it'll be nice to work through the six-pack during these dark evenings.

Dark browned amber. A finger of thick tanned head that leaves small webby organic laces.

Roasty and dark, nutty, sweet caramel, smoke, pine, and dark cherries.

Toasty caramel, earthy and smokey, a little nutty. Spicy and herbal pine. Nice bite of bitterness. warming.

Sticky, dry, and smooth. a little chewy. well carbonated.

Great tasty warmer that goes down very well. Good balance with a nice hop rush.
