A: clear ruby red amber color with some lighter golden notes. 1 finger bright white head

S: caramel, oak, sweet berries, cardboard, grassy hops

T: Caramel, sweet berries, and the grassy hops up front. There is a faint hint of molasses towards the end. Finish has sweet malt and a little of the grassy hops; they balance each other out

M: heavier side of medium mouthfeel with high carbonation

O: nice winter warmer. It’s not as toasty as the American versions, but it’s heavy and malty without being cloy. Great bottle to split as the days get cold

Pours chestnut brown with thick white head and nice lacing. The nose is a little light, some malt, caramel, and sugar. I really love the flavors, super clean malt with some chewy caramel, little burnt sugar and a small bite on the finish. I am super happy with this beer, I went into it thinking it would be harsh but it was a gem, very clean and well done, cheers.

I really like this beer. Taste is malty, but not too sweet like some winter beers. Just enough hops to mellow the malts. Gives a nice amber head that laces the glass the whole way down. Smells delicious.
