look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5
12 oz. bottle poured into a pint glass, drank at 45F.
A - Dark ruby to burnished bronze in color, nice amount of head that dissipted quickly into a nice lasting lace ring.
S - Oak and pepper, light piney hop aroma as well. Backed up by some roasted malt, impressive complexity for a beer in this price range.
T - Juniper berry esters in the forefront, a little toasted nuttiness as it develops. Christmas ale is a good description here.
M - Wish it were a bit more warming, but it feels good on the palate and doesn't linger too long. Just a tinge of bitter finish.
O - Well done, I'll be sure to have some on hand for Christmas guests. Wouldn't make a good everyday drinker, but as a seasonal its spot on. Cheers!
