Poured from 12 oz bottle into pint glass.

Appearance: dark reddish-brown with plenty of streaming carbonation. Pours a 1" cream colored head that falls pretty fast with some lacing left behind.

Aroma: rich aroma of toffee, dark roasted barley, earthy and citrus hops.

Mouthfeel: medium bodied, slightly astringent, with a dry finish and a lingering alcohol burn.

Flavor: complex mixture of rich roasted barley, cocoa, toffee, some tangy citrus and herbal hops and a definite alcohol presence.

Overall: a hearty and tasty brew, this definitely fits the definition of a "winter warmer". Excellent to sip on a frigid winter night.

Brown to dark brown with a fair amount of light still permeating the glass. A fingernail of beige head coats the top almost entirely. I smell caramel and toffee. I taste caramel and mocha in this rich winter warmer. The body is chewy and lightly sticky.

Had this poured from the bottle into a pint glass. Color was a rich brown, average head, not a ton of lacing. The flavor had a pretty strong boozy finish after notes of brown sugar and malt. The mouthfeel was smooth, very pleasant. Not bad.
