look: 3 | smell: 2.75 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75

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.
