A hazy, bubbling, dull copper. Very fine tan head has modest retention. Smells a little of resin, a little of caramel. Slightly estery as well. More hoppy on the taste, being piney, and herbal to spicy, especially on the back end. Reminds me of a winter-time treat. At the start a little tart and caramel, then raisins, then bread and black pepper. A little off-kilter. I can't say that it favors any one taste sensation, but neither does it meld them together as well as it could, with others of the style in mind. Still an enjoyable, drinkable beer. Medium bodied beer with medium carbonation, a little sticky, but not thick. Mild astringency.
