Pours a clear, dark amber color. 1/4 inch head of an off-white color. Slight retention and poor lacing. Smells of yeast, sweet malt, slight alcohol, hint of hop, slight chocolate, hint of pale malt, and a hint of oatmeal. Fits the style of a Winter Warmer. Mouth feel is sharp and crisp, with a low carbonation level. Tastes of yeast, sweet malt, hint of chocolate, hint of roasted malt, hint of pale malt, hint of hops, and alcohol. Overall, weak appearance, but decent aroma, good blend, good body, and decent feel.
