A: Pours a nice light amberish color with a decent white head that leaves some nice lacing.
S: Has a nice sweet aroma that comes across at the beginning. The sweet smells fades into a slight smell of hops and barley.
T: The taste mirrors the smell. The flavor starts with a nice sweet flavor that then blends into a nice strong hoppy finish. The hops leave a nice pleasant bitter aftertaste.
M: Really nice amount of chew to the beer. I was expecting a lot less chew, so I was pleasantly surprised.
O: Overall the beer was very good. The beer balances sweet with hops very nicely, and leaves a nice aftertaste. I would highly recommend this beer to all drinkers. I think hopheads will be enjoy the amount of hops that come through in the end.

I am stunned at just how many and of what kinds of beers are in my backlog. I bought these with every intention of drinking them in season and then things seemed to get away from me. At least, I am catching up at this point.
From the bottle: "HIBERNATOR This robust and malty brew will take the bite from a cold winter night. ENJOY!"; "UNFILTERED WINTER BREW"; "TAKE A HIKE!"
I popped the cap and let fly, watching breathlessly as the pseudo-cascade took place, slowly morphing into two-plus fingers of dense, tawny head with great retention. Color was a brownish-copper (SRM = > 13, < 17) with NE-quality clarity. Nose was rich and sweet with malt - caramel, cocoa, toffee. Oh my. There are times that I question my buying habits because as a hophead, this is not in my wheelhouse. The head fell in an unusual way, collapsing down and in on itself. Mouthfeel was medium and the richness of the malt almost threw me into diabetic shock! It was tasty, though, more like toffee than caramel. Finish was sweet, but not cloying, so I did not have any problem drinking all of it. This is one that would be more suited for the Winter season, if I were to get it again.
