A full Imperial pint at the Tin Palace location.

This beer appears a clear, rather dark bronzed amber hue, with a half finger of thinly foamy, but still somehow creamy dirty white head, which leaves a nice cragging shoreline of lace around the glass as it quickly bleeds off.

It smells of bready caramel malt, musty generic orchard fruit, a soft toasted biscuit essence, Mars bar, and weak earthy, leafy hops. The taste is faintly roasted caramel malt, sugary nougat, cherry cough syrup, just expired milk, bittersweet cocoa, and earthy, weedy hops.

The carbonation is fairly average, maybe a bit spritzy, the body medium light in weight, and a tad tacky in its otherwise standard smoothness. It finishes off-dry, the caramel/fondant character loitering amongst some equally befuddled sharp drupe fruit esters.

A bit of a toughie to classify - my spidey sense says that this is the Dark Ale, re-branded as a seasonal, but it doesn't seem much like a porter of any ilk. So, with all the mixed-up stuff going on here, winter warmer it is. And a mainstream-friendly one at that, for when the local talent is more noteworthy than the beer.
