poured into a schnifter. pours a deep dark red with a half finger of pretty uneven white head which disappears very quickly and leaves no lacing.
smell is very subtle and at best subdued. very little malt presence, no hops or fruit, no alchohol.
taste is a bit stronger and has a nice malt bill that reminds me of a light scottish ale. still very slight though.
mouthfeel: not really anything to comment on. i would like a syrupy feeling as provided by other winter warmers but i wont complain.
drinkability: its good and has a nicely masked abv but there is nothing really special or amazing about this beer.
Serving type: bottle
