This is a very confused beer- not quite sure whether it is an amber or a stout, and not quite sure it is proud or ashamed of its high alcohol-content. The after-taste is all stout- chocolatey and vaguely coffee-like, but the mouthfeel is light and the head lackluster. The color of the beer itself is a very dark red, and it tastes just like it looks. Overall, it's a very good beer for getting drunk; I was gone faster than I anticipated, and the taste was in all honesty above average. Great beer to buy on sale, but not something to look for, in my opinion.

A clear ruby color with awesome widespread and thick sheet of lacing.

Aroma of sweet roast malt and brown sugar.

Sweet malt and nice hop in the background. Focus on the malt. Dark bread, brown sugar and dark fruit. A great flavor profile.

Mouthfeel is med/full and appropriate carbonation for the style.

This is a drinkable, flavorful malty beer. It is a great representation of a winter seasonal. Great job Lost Coast!!
