Poured from the bomber into my 22oz Sam Adams Sensory glass.
Poured about 17 oz in at first, which left a beautiful creamy tan 2-3 finger head that sat upon a dark amber/red body that was clear. When I poured the rest in, it became cloudy and I"m assuming that's from the yeast sediment on the bottom of the bottle.
Smell - Crisp hops and some biscuity bready malts hit the nose first and foremost. Almost has the nose of a decent pale ale.
Taste - I didn't know what to expect, but other winter warmers have left me disappointed before so, here goes. WOW - this is exactly what I was hoping for when I think of a winter warmer. Clean hops hit the palate, followed by the malty biscuitness for a balance backbone, and the finish is this wonderful, spicy hop that resonates ever so much to make this beer pop.
Mouthfeel - medium and creamy, carbonation is there just enough so you don't forget about it.
Overall - I think this is a home run from Berkshire. I am a fan of their Pale ale and with the snow we're getting in CT, I figured this one would go well with today. I'm so glad I picked it up. This is an easy drinking, almost pale ale like beer, with some spicy hop notes that appear in the finish. Another Delicious beer from Berkshire. Well done! I only wish I purchased more of this, earlier in the winter season.
