Appearance: Clear light reddish brown with a 3” lacy, rocky off-white foam cap. Slight legs. Smell: Roast, fruit, sherry. Taste: Plum, sherry, a hint of coffee with sweetness lingering into the finish. Citrus rind bitterness provides balance. Mouthfeel: Creamy, luscious, slightly above medium body and above medium carbonation.

Appearance: Deep ruby, fairly clear, no head/lacing.

Aroma: Rich caramel/toffee, pretty boozy, piney hop character.

Flavor: Hot. Like I honestly would guess this was +12% blind. Big piney hops over a monster specialty malt backbone.

Mouthfeel: Booze gives it a drying, warming sensation.

Couldnt taste any hopps. Was hoping for more from their description. But it was strong and had (warming) qualities. Very bready with strong alcohol. No head, wasnt expecting one. If the hopps came through i would be crazy happy.

Pours a clear, red/brown color. One inch head of an off-white color. Great retention and great lacing. Smells of alcohol, sweet malt, hint of roasted malt, slight yeast, caramel malt, hops, hint of pine, and a hint of wood. Fits the style of an Old Ale. Mouth feel is smooth and crisp, with an average carbonation level. Tastes of sweet malt, yeast, alcohol, hint of roasted malt, slight hops, caramel malt, and a hint of wood. Overall, good appearance, aroma, body, blend, and decent complexity.

High gravity, not as dark as most winter warmers I've had, not boozy at all and well balanced.
