A - Brownish purple and slightly hazy brew with a foamy one finger head. Thick skeins of lace slide down the glass leaving trails of tan arcs.
S - Malty and roasty aromas. Chocolate cake with chocolate icing. Bready and a little bit coffee like in scent.
T - Huge wallop of flavor straight off! This stuff is like thick black bread in a glass! Chocolate, cake, bread, and chocolate cupcakes are the major flavors. Roasty grains add a great dimension to the sweet malt, and keep things from getting to sugary. A big dose of leafy grassy hops also helps in this department. This is an outstanding brew! Perfect balance for me.
M - Thick and chewy with a good sting of carbonation and a hoppy, leafy finish. Excellent. Residual sugars come back into play after the hops fade out. The finish and aftertaste last forever!
D - Perfect. I don't know if this should be called a winter warmer though. I think is is more refreshing and quenching than it is warming. Low alc. level only increases drinkability, and the mixture of bready malts, roasty grains, and high doses of hops combines all of my favorite things into one outstanding brew. Well done!
