A - Brownish red. Reminds me of a bourbon pour in color. A good amount of carbonation that was brownish as well.
S - sweet and malty, caramel, yam,
T - Caramel, earthy tones (Rich tea effect?)through out, Juniper berry flavor was through out but definitely not overpowering.
M - It was medium bodied, good carbonation for an ale. Easy to drink.
O- It was a solid beer. Not something I buy over and over, but not a bad beer. It was a good beer for a lazy Sunday afternoon at the house.

Poured from a bottle into a nonic pint.
A - Umm...whoa. Pours a downright murky copper color with a TON of sediment. Seriously, my glass looks like a snow globe. Man, I hope this is normal for this style. Two-finger eggshell colored head. Really good ringlets of lacing.
S - Very mild aroma. What is there is mostly a mineral/salty smell, with a hint of juniper. Faint toffee/caramel odor lurking underneath.
T - Toffee and caramel in the nose come forward big time in the taste, making for a pleasant sweetness. Hints of banana, mixed berry, yellow raisin, and crème brulee. Slight toasted woodiness (oak?) in the mid-palate. Juniper lightly present throughout but never overbearing. (I've had winter beers with much more) Overall this is pretty darn tasty.
M - Medium bodied, with lower carbonation. Somewhat creamy. Finishes very "wet".
O - Certainly an odd duck of a beer, but I liked it. I'm not sure if I will be buying it again, but I am really glad I tried/reviewed it.
