In a pint glass:

A: dark amber colored body with a slight creamy looking one finger head, moderate sliding lacing

S: sweet caramel malts, small amounts of apples, cherries and honey with some light hops

T: bitter as the hops come in front of the malts and previously mentioned flavors

M: light to medium, sessionable, sweet watery aftertaste, bitter finish

O: this is good for the style and good for me

12oz bottle had between Burlington Caucus.

A clear red/amber color with a small white head -lots of lacing. Nose is hoppy and fresh, light malt notes as well but quite well balanced.

Taste is surprisingly hoppy for a red, but very welcomed. The mouthfeel is decent, slightly high carbonation with a nice crisp finish. A slight metallic note but not too strong.

a-nice dark amber with a slight reddish hue. creamy half finger head with medium amount of lacing.
s-sweet smelling with a touch of caramel malts. smell small amounts apples or cherries and wild flower honey. and a subtle hops scent.
t-initial hops flavor fads buts is present throughout. there is a maltiness to it. there is some spiciness to it as well. there is even a sour cherry and grape flavor towards the end. very drinkable nice flavor with gentle notes of each flavor characteristic.
m-again, very nice. highly drinkable. doesnt weigh you down like many other winter beers. the body is less dense than most winters but flavor makes up for the lite body.
o-im glad otter creek took their black ipa and made it year round and introduced this as their winter beer instead. this is a nice addition to the otter creek family.

Radiant amber with nice cream white lace on the glass.

Nice notes of pine sap with orange, granola and brown sugar.

Really well balanced nice deep bready malt with a kick of citrus and pineapple. Solid bitter in the finish makes for wanting more sips.

Mouthfeel is medium bodied, smooth, lightly sweet finish.

Another outstanding new beer from a vastly underrated brewery.
