look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Served on tap into a shaker glass

A- Poured a dark brown with some reddish hues, soapy off-white head left some minimal lacing.

S- Lots of roasted coffee, roasted malt, brown sugar, and some light chocolate notes in the aroma.

T- Huge roasted coffee, roasted malt, and brown sugar notes. A pretty big toffee, bready, and chocolate notes. Also moderate to high bitterness with quite a bit of earthy hop flavor and some light citrusy hops.

M- Medium to fuller bodied, soft carbonation, very smooth, big alcohol warming, and semi-dry finish.

O- A very complex and flavorful beer. The roasted coffeee notes on this beer are so fresh and delicious.

Serving type: on-tap

great holiday type brown ale here, my first from oakshire as far as i can remember. only $3.99 a bomber, great price for a beer thats far too good for that kind of tag. deep mahogany color, more brown than red, gorgeous inch of khaki foam and lacing like you read about. the nose sports a ton of chocolate malt, much more like a brown ale than a red or amber, despite the red glow. i like the lack of both sweet malt and holiday spices here, this is a no gimmicks winter beer, and a darn good one. its bitter cocoa and ale yeast, big brown with a medium body and a snappy bitter hoppy finish, relatively speaking. this warms me well, although it doesnt fit the traditional winter warmer bill, i almost prefer it. woody and deep in flavor, but not overly complex. filling but not huge, its a great balance thats reached. good enough to make me want to seek out more oakshire, especially if they are all priced this fairly. get me to oregon!

Poured from a bomber into a perfect pint glass 11/28

Pours very dark brown with full inch of white foam. Fluffy and resilient. Light fruity malt nose - raspberry and cherry. Hearty wintering taste, buried fruits, subtle spice. Finish with a tight hop. Somewhere in between a traditional winter warmer and a nut brown ale. All good.

From the 650 ml. bottle. Sampled on November 30, 2013.

The pour is medium amber to mahogany brown with a mocha head that lingers and laces for quite some time.

Roasted malty aroma mostly with coffee, cream, salt, and a touchy of a juicy fruit. Interesting but not extraordinary.

The body is about medium and there is a creamy quality to the texture.

Malts tend to be the first flavor I pick up but there is a musky, cellared quality to it. Light to moderate bitterness. Once is enough for me on this beer.
