3.8/5  rDev -7.5%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4

A. Dark reddish-brown, clear, with a thin light-tan head

S. Plenty of smoky oakiness up front, a some phenols maybe, sweet malts.

T. More of the same with a balanced bitterness. The oak is fairly muted, but noticeable. Both the sweetness at the front of the tongue and the bitterness as it goes down linger for a good while.

M. Medium-bodied, a little on the thin side for a winter warmer.

O. A pretty decent English Winter Warmer. Could definitely use a bit more heft in the mouthfeel. The oak adds a nice touch and the finish as staying with me a long time. I always like that in a beer.
