12 oz. bottle poured into a Burley Oak snifter (best by 097A15)

A: Dark brown tinged with ruby/amber. Bit of a head and only the slightest collar. Translucent from the top down.
S: Interesting smell that is mostly malts but in that winter warmer style.
T: Decent winter warmer, but its flavors seem to slightly off and a bit askew. Odd aftertaste. Slight burst of hops there on another taste. Actually this is growing on me as it warms and I keep drinking it.
M: Even carbonation throughout.
O: Good, but not great. I can say that I can't think of a particular Winter Warmer at the time.

1/10...pours reddish brown, 1/2 inch white/off white foam. Sticks strong. Dark fruit nose, cherries, plums. Fruity undercurrent taste, thick mouthfeel. A little syrupy. Cough syrup bitter rolls through and drives an aftertaste. Offputting.
