The Misteltoe bliss pours a deep amber with a nice finger foam head. The retention is okay. It leaves a little lacing on the side of the glass.

The aroma caramel roasted malts.

The taste is more malty and has a nice bitter finish to it. It has very little of a hop presence and is tad chewy in the mouth. Overall it is a good winter warmer and I will have another come next year.

Service Temperature, 45 degrees. Judge Glassware is a 12 ounce tulip.

Appearance, is burgundy & clear with a soft mild white foamy head, and some faint lace etched around the glass.
Aroma, is a sweet honey, with some burned aroma, some oats, mild pine and citrus.
Taste, is earthy some mild biscuit, mild pine. The mouth waivers from mild to medium in regards to overall weight.

Cheers

My first try from this new-ish WA brewer that just started recently showing up on Portland-area shelves. Lazy Boy's website calls this beer "[a] new brown ale on steroids!", but I'll call it a 'winter warmer' (seems to be a 'catch-all' style this time of year...).

Bottle lists ABV at 7.8%, though the site shows 7.5%.
Grains: Pale, Crystal, Munich, Brown, Vienna, Chocolate
Hops: Ahtanum

A: Pours a warm bronze, liquid nutmeg and cinnamon colors. It's a very pretty look and surprisingly clear- looks almost like tea. Ample small carbonation rising to a light tan head that crests at about 1/2 finger and fades to a thin topping of mottled cream. Bits of lace pasted to the sides.

S: Light aroma of ripe fruit, but pretty subtle. Bits of toffee and spice with some fresh, citrus (orange) and mild pine resin.

T: Fairly bold maltiness, with emphasis of caramel and cocoa, surrounded by a mellower grassy and spicy hopping. Initially, this seemed a bit harsh and unbalanced, but as it warmed it really grew on me...lots of spice (tangy ginger and ground nutmeg) coupled with zesty lemon and a toasty dose of malted grains.

M: Has a likable thickness, somewhere between 'medium' and 'full'. Smooth, a touch creamy, and definitely easy to sip on. Alcohol warmth is concealed, just a slight lingering hop bittering on the back of the tongue.

D: Not a bad brew at all, nice balance and good flavors. I'm happy to have tried this and would recommend it to the Northwest BA's who can find it.
