I really loved this beer. From first sip.
Poured from bottle to snifter/beer goblet
Apperaance: Medium Amber/ 1/4 inch cream colored head - faint lacing.
Smell: Ginger/Spice/Cinnamon/Winterwonderland/ Honey. This is not a sugary beer, it's sweet with the spices. I'm amazed by the balance. I had two in a row because I was so impressed.
Taste: Perfect. Spicy, sweet, malt/hop balance.
Mouth Feel: Not over carbonated - not under cabonated.
Overall: This is the best winter warmer I've had this season. I'm kinda sad that even if I start stock piling now- the shelf life is only good til the first part of March This will be my go-to winter warmer next year, once the temps are below 32 or as available.
Pairings: Good with carbs - all winter warmers are good with something savory in my honest opinion. It's the charm of the winter warmer.
Serving type: bottle
