Thanks Lukaski for picking this brew up for me.

Rusty amber color. Good bubbling. Nice off white head after the pour and some strong film o' foam for all twelve ounces.

Sweet malt and somewhat banana like yeast aromas. Smells malty sweet and inviting. But the aroma for this style of beer seemed a little off.

There's some cracker, biscuit, and a little bread crust malt flavor. The rest is dominated by booze. Pretty hot beer here. Does NOT taste the way it smells at all. Bitter alcoholic finish.

I won't buy this beer again. I was definetly disappointed with this beer.

Bottle poured into snifter

A- Dark hazy orange. Big white, fluffy head that melts quickly. Little lacing.

S- Sweet toasted tawny malts. Slight fruity pear notes

T- Toasty and warming. Biscuit sweet malts that fades into an alcohol burn.

M- Medium bodied. Highly carbonated. Silky smooth and creamy

O- An interesting brew. Doesn’t have the typical Scotch Ale features I typically associate with the style, but as a Winter Warmer it definitely does the job.

Cheers to Goblinmunkey7 for giving me a bottle of this

Consumed 8/1/13, because the first day of August is definitely when a Winter Warmer should be enjoyed

Appearance: Pours with a lively, medium sized, off-white, creamy head - medium amber with some copper highlights, generally hazy - leaves some thick streaks of lacing that stick around

Smell: Malty, with some roast - not a particularly robust aroma - malty, with some caramel grains, toast, and hints of toffee - some light sweetness - lightly roasty with a touch of smoke - alcohol is pretty obvious

Taste: About as unexciting as the aroma, sadly - medium amount of maltiness - some caramel, grainy, toasty, and lightly sweet toffee notes - some earthy, grassy bitterness - lightly roasty, but not much - alcohol is obvious, not not overwhelming

Mouthfeel: Medium body, medium carbonation, smooth, with some dry booze in the finish

Overall: Finally! A New Glarus beer that isn't fantastic!

I typically have a lot of loving things to say about New Glarus beers, but I am far from blown away by this. It's not particularly flavorful for a Scotch Ale. It has some malty and roasty notes, but it lacks complexity.
