Amber to deep amber. Decent clarity. Laces nicely after a fluffy head settled.
Cereal grains with a whole-grain Wheaties vibe. Subtle cherry nuances and hints of vanilla. Seeming notes of cinnamon and light roast. Dry and a little musty.
Sweeter grains with dark fruity esters, roasty bitterness, hemp, pomme, maraschino, husks, and light booze. Some tea notes in the mix.
Medium body with an early bumrush of carbonation. Works for drinkability. Booze never oversteps its boundary.
Serving type: on-tap

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.
