A - Pours a dark reddish copper color with a thick fluffy off white head. Lacing is pretty and the head retention is really good.

S - Smells balanced between caramel notes and fruity hop scents. Some brown sugar smells come through too.

T - Very balanced between the Chinook hops and the sweet malt flavors. The malt tastes like brown sugar, kind of like a Christmas cookie. Sweet, but definitely not cloying. The sweet taste covers up any alcohol flavors.

M - Medium bodied with an almost slick feel.

O - One of my favorite winter seasonals that I buy every year. I absolutely love the fresh hopped Chinook flavor and aroma. It fits perfectly with the sweet malt flavors.
