A moderate pour produces a one inch off-white head that proves pretty sticky. The beer is a medium copper color and slightly hazy with moderate carbonation.

I get a unique whiff of something in the aroma that I can't quite place, but it has a vegetal or medicinal quality. The flavor is pretty clean, with low bitterness and a lingering dry finish. Notes of caramel and a bit of a puckering twang, but not much. The body is fairly light for the style with a bit of effervescence on the tongue. A little alcohol warming as the beer progresses.

This is a fairly unique beer and quite unlike most winter warmers I've tried. The weird aroma is just a tad overbearing, but it drinks well overall.

look: 4 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

12 oz bottle poured clear, red-amber in color, and topped by a very good head.
Malty and very lightly spicy (perhaps just from hops). Some chocolate appears by the finish, and is quickly joined by a hint of coffee. Aftertaste is dominated by dark roasted malts.

O: decent but unexceptional brown ale.
