Very bizarre first smell. Can't really even describe it. Under a half=inch head. Hard to distinguish which hop actually smells/tastes okay. Very strange mixture. It does taste better than it originally smells I will give it that. Otherwise, happy I purchased this with a mixer pack and will not get any more.

I really like New Belgium and love Fat Tire, Somersault and even liked 2 below. Can't wait to even try Dig.
I knew when I poured it in the glass with it being pitch black it was not for me but I had high hops.
This is in now way a Winter Warmer. It's way too hoppy and I like hoppy beers. Big disappointment by all aspects for me. I have the remaining 5 beers I can't drink.

I poured a bottle into a mug.
Appearance- Very dark almost black with a fingers worth of lingering head. Nice amount of lacing.
Smell- Strong aroma of piney hops.
Taste- Bitter hops which overpower any other flavors that might be present.
Mouthfeel- Crisp, medium bodied, and a slightly dry finish.
Overall- This is not what I expect from a winter ale, the hop presence is overpowering. I did not enjoy this beer.
