Deep dark amber with some golden hints and a huge white crown of foamy head with little staying power but lots of lacing.
Smells resiny and piney with strong notes of caramel and a light toffee scent.
The taste is very tea like, it is still very hoppy but lacks the punch of most winter warmers. The malt is very light but consists of a bit of bran and caramel. Most dominant is the piney hops.
The mouthfeel is slightly creamy with some fizzy carbonation. Also very light bodied with a dry finish.
Drinkability is relatively high, not too heavy even flavors and still quite tasty, though uncharacteristic for the style.
Yummy beer, but it's just not what unexpected from an old ale or a winter warmer. Not disappointed but underwhelmed.
Serving type: on-tap
