Matly, Sweet, Astringent, Aggressive

This beer pours a slightly hazed dark copper with a frothy head and sticky lace. Clean, soft, and malty in the aroma. Its creamy mouthfeel has some chewiness. Toasty, bready and sweet malts combine with a husky astringency, nuttiness and deep earthiness. The bitterness is leafy and coarse with grass, big herbal notes, minty suggestions, and an oily coating on the palate. Noticeable alcohol as the beer warms. Dry, spicy, and gritty in the finish. Overall, What Winter? Ale is okay. It's a robust ale with an aggressive hop profile (99.1 IBU), but the flavors are quite muddled and astringent.

As reviewed in BeerAdvocate magazine #120 (January 2017).
