Otherwise unassuming blue and cream label depicting a cross country skiing figure boasts a few awards on the side. Poured into a goblet, dark red-tinged brown, tan head, and I can smell toffee on the nose from about two feet away. Close up it's an herby, roasted grain aroma. Smells like it's gonna be sweet. First sip has my throat tightening a bit from the alcohol - this almost has a wine-like character to it, and not far behind at almost nine percent. Plummy, earthy, and stoutish. Mouthfeel is definitely thick, creamy, and barely carbonated. Stylistically appropriate, hot and heavy, and thoroughly enjoyable!
