Poured into a Sierra Nevada pint glass. No readable freshness date.

A- Pours a deep, dark brown that's somewhat opaque with a 1/2 inch off-white head that loosens and becomes an 1/8 inch ring around the edge of the glass. Neat constellations of bubbles on the surface and likewise-patterned lacing.

S- Roasty and somewhat alcoholic. Also a tad sweet-smelling with some spice notes in the back.

T- Heavy onset of roast that slips into a rubbery, boozy gutter and does not recover. No hops, no spice, no balance. Just strange.

M- Sharp twangs from the alcohol on the tongue and in the back of the throat. Dry with medium carbonation.

O- I don't know if this is what a true "Wassail" is supposed to be like, but this just does not agree with me.

Poured into a wine glass, a deep and glowing mahogany lurks beneath an off-white head. Aroma is of a cool and mildly peppermint spiced candy. Dark fruit, perhaps prune, rides sweetly along a complementary deep toasted malt blend backbone. Robust but smooth body with a warming feel in the finish.

Firstly, I am unexperienced tasting this style. This brew poured a deep brown, mahogany, has some ruby tints. Head does not retain. Scent is earthy, woody, some fruit as well. Taste is not as sweet as I expected, Hoppy and bitter, some bitter fruit rind can be detected. Mellows as it warms. Mouthfeel is crisp and bitter. But pleasantly so. Overall, an enjoyable beer, I am glad I tried this one.
