Picked this up to enjoy while doing a home brew. 22 oz bomber from a local "convenient" store that has a pretty good selection of craft beers...for my little town.

This beer poured a nice clear ruby brown with a 1" persistent tan head and plenty of lacing on the sides as I enjoyed. I can pick up strong caramel malts with a resinous spicy hop aroma. The carbonation is medium and seems appropriate for the beer. The mouth feel is full bodied. Lots of sweet caramel malt up front followed immediately by resinous spicy hop flavor, with a lingering pleasant bitterness. I wish the alcohol were a little lower, but it doesn't get in the way of the flavor or aroma.

Overall, I really enjoyed this beer and would definitely get it again while available.

Pours a darker brown with some amber and light showing through the glass. Some head at pour lingers nicely and some lacing is present. Aroma is malty - caramel and/or brown sugar - with a hint of hops. Good quality flavor - nice brew for a snowy day. Bitter up front but then sweet to the finish.
