Pouring a deep chestnut color, K-9 Winter Ale gives off a deep malty brown sugar and slight hopping reminiscent of subtle orange citrus and pine. There’s is a bizarre candy like note as well, that calls to mind smarties or bubble gum. There’s a compliment of chocolate and slightly smoke notes buried deeply in the background. On the palate it starts out smooth, but incredibly light, and grows increasingly carbonated throughout. The flavors channel more pine like hop notes, overcooked caramel, a subtly biscuit like nature. On the finish the hops actually pick up and compliment a burnt caramel flavor, leaving a slightly bitter note.
