look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 3 | overall: 5

Overall impression is this is a great winter ale...

The appearance is a reddish, blackish - but transparent, like a tinted windor... how'd they do that? It is carbonated well, like a crackling fire... pours a shallow off-white head

Smell is chocolaty... and nutty.

Taste - still nutty. crisp taste - not heavy as expected... hints of smokey, woody flavors - has the appeal of a coffee porter...

Mouthfeel is average.

Drinkability - great as a nightcap. After a meal, with friends, or even to eat with cake.... but don't skip the milk.

Serving type: bottle
