Many thanks to jhartley for this beer.

A- Dark burgundy colored pour with nice clarity and thin caramel colored lacing.

S - Earthy and nutty with toasted malt aroma and toasted malt sweetness.

T - Toasted nutty malt, some booziness with some resiny citrus on the very back end. Sweet finish with underlying citrus resin.

M - Medium body.

O - A nice Winter Warmer. Would be even better with a splash of Bourbon in the glass!

A rare opportunity to find this in my favorite beer store here in Seattle. Not disappointed! Full bodied winter ale. Please bring more to Seattle! The smell and taste are near perfect to me.

Great, heavy, flavorful winter ale. Best in Cask.

Served On-Tap

A — Pours a deep copper color into the glass, with an off-white colored head on top of it, leaving behind semi-consistent lacing.

S — Smell is strong and lightly sweet, notes of rich malts and spices, pretty prototypical winter warmer.

T — Bready, sweet, malt forward, little bit of a spice component, overall it is sweet and rich.

M — Medium-Full bodied, and warming on the way down.

O — Good overall, not one of my favorite styles, this one is fine though.
