Flat, malty, and a tad sour. It could be a bad batch or just that this is a bad beer. It gives no feel or taste of winter. Just leaves a funky after taste and overall boring and bad.

Source/Serving: 12oz. Bottle

Smell: Artificial brown sugar, strong medicinal/herbal note which doesn't really match with the assertive coriander spiciness. This is a bit of a train wreck with strong roastiness and a dark dankness - like an old cellar.

Taste: Thin and artificial. Nondescript maltiness up front that quite bland and flavorless but not super sweet. In the middle the carbonation becomes more prevalent and there is a lifeless ripe fruit flavor with a banana edge and faint spices. Finish is short, semisweet, and spicy.
