2012 bottle, 8.75% abv, nonic.
a - pours a murky, dark brown with a just a thin film of head and a few bubbles. no lacing.
s - clove, cinnamon, molasses, fresh bread.
t - thankfully the spice is more muted than in the nose. has a pronounced, earthy hop bitterness with some burnt malt laying low in the background. notes of black coffee in there as well. finishes very dry. not a very successful combination of flavors imo.
m - medium in body with not quite enough carbonation. finer co2 profile.
o - meh. dark horse beers are hit or miss for me, and this one is a miss. lacks most of the things i look for in a winter warmer, mainly the malty sweetness and a subdued hop profile. probably won't be returning to this one.
