12oz bottle -> american pint
Above is screened on the bottle
Pours dark brown dark orange bands in the light with an active wispy head. The head pulsates down to a thin sheet. A few random stalactite of lace.
Nose: Chocolate malts pretty one dimensional, some light candy
Medium smooth body that finishes clean. Heavy malt base with chocolate most prominent. Some chewy caramel and toffee tones. A bit of dark fruit enters at the end, maybe some raisin or licorice. End with a quick a flash of spicy booze and drying bitterness.
No winter spice that sometimes dominates or destroys winter warmers depending on your opinion. I for one, like 'em not heavily spiced. Feels more like a big brown/porter than a winter warmer.
