Bottle poured into a 22oz Pilsner glass. Thanks for this one, Steve.

Live review.

A: Pours a deep red/mahogany color, almost brown, 2 finger tan head settles after 5 minutes into a full cap, sticky small bubble lacing everywhere, and it refuses to let go of the glass. Very, very impressive so far.

S: Not a ton here, caramel and toffee sweetness, a little bit of a spicy, earthy hop, some light toast notes as well. Kind of bland, to be honest.

T: Hoppy like a rabbit! Hop bitterness is very pronounced, citric, piney, herbal, earthy, and very sharp. The sweetness that existed heavily in the aroma is masked by these overwhelming hops. Slight toast and caramel notes come toward the finish before getting buried beneath a nasty alcohol burn and another wave of bitterness. Finishes long and bitter. Meh. Better than the aroma, I guess.

M: Thin, slick, oily. Decently carbed. Again, meh.

O: Meh. This beer is a Winter Warmer alright. The bitterness and the burn from the alcohol could keep anyone warm. This is more a hoppy red ale than a winter warmer, IMO. Heavy handed, in all honesty. Would I buy more? No. Would I drink it again? Probably not. Just overpowering, and I'm a hophead.

I thought Full Sail was supposed to be good. This is meh.

review from yesterday:

Enjoy By 2/21/14. I guess I'm about a month out....
Very dark, nut Brown, almost transparent. Small head, tan, creamy.
Aroma is slightly nutty, some spice, although it says there isn't any.
Taste is bread and caramel up front, sweet, then some hop bitterness to follow.
Kind of thin, especially for a 7.2% abv, but decent. leaves a bitter aftertaste with some kind of spice on the roof of the mouth.
