Dark brown with a two finger lasting off white head and decent amount of lacing.
Smell is malty molasses dank hops and brown sugar. Taste is dank hops plenty of sugars and malts.
Mouthfeel is full and medium dry finish.
Overall one of the better winter warmers from the Northwest.

22oz bottle from "Roths Sunnyslope Market" in S. Salem $3.99 Darker amber/red ale with a good sized,long lasting light tan head. Aromas of toffee/caramel malts and spruce/piney hops,also getting faint licorice nice really. Taste is way malty at first deep toffee and treacle notes, touch of licorice then satisfying deep hoppiness..finishes semi dry..and long long pleasing finish. Lovely thick yet moving fast mouth feel. A really nice satisfying winter ale..loved it
