A: Deep, earthy brown with a copper tone, highly carbonated and 2 fingers of tan head.

S: Malts, light malts compared to the colour, slight lemon.

T: Follows the nose of light malts, slight lemon, then a darker burt taste comes in, followed by a nice yeastiness which is very pleasant.

M: Medium, bready body, highly carbonated.

O: 8 out of 10. Good beer, would go well with lots of things especially pizza. Middle of the road and flexible as far as flavours.

Pours a rich black-sable with a thick and rather persistent tan head. Aroma has a core of roast malt with hints of cloves and caramel. Mainly malty flavor has smoky and woody hoppy notes plus a hint of cloves, none too strong. Texture is the weak point, being a bit watery and not too fizzy. Still, a decent winter ale, worthy of at least a try.
