Notes / Commercial Description:
This hearty ale is a holiday season celebration favorite.

32 oz. growler filled at Kreston's this afternoon. Poured into Dogfish Head signature goblet.

A - Pours auburn with ruby highlights in the light. About a finger of cream colored head sits on top. Great retention. Patchy lacing clings to the glass as I drink.

S - Pleasantly sweet aroma full of oats, caramel, pear, and raisin. Wet, bready grains come through more with every whiff. Roasty and nutty on the back end as well. None of the spices or peat that I typically associate with the style. Not terribly complex, but deep and effective.

T - Roasted malts dominate on the tip of the tongue. Toasted almond, barley, and mild sweetness follows. A touch of bittering pine on the back end with a clean finish.

M - Medium bodied with a nice micro-carbonated smoothness. No alcohol. Drinks like a sessionable brown ale, not an 8% warmer. Dangerous.

O - Another solid beer form my most local brewery. I appreciate their ability to create a flavorful winter warmer without venturing into the spice cabinet. This brew allows the roasted malts and grain to shine. I am happy to have this as a local winter offering.
