Appearance is a rust color with a medium body. Aroma is very malty,a little bit of a floral hop smell and a candy brown sugar element. Taste is identical,not too sweet,slight alcohol bite with a bitter finish that lingers

toffee notes of sweetness and spices, quickly followed by dark/strong malts. A taste that has a lot going on, a sipper.

Taste Rating in Words: It'e the first time you get to try coffee or beer when you are a kid, so much and you never appreciate it.

Poured out a clear amber color with a one-finger, khaki colored head of bubbly foam. It smelled malty and of sweet caramel. There was a mild floral hop aroma. It tasted of bready malt with some sweet caramel. It has some sharp hop bitterness. It was fairly sharp and smooth.

Blue Point winter ale growler from brewery Dec. 2016. Alcohol 7.7%, from brewery website. This beer is not the same as in previous winters (this has higher alcohol). The beer has the deep amber color and tan head. This brew has a sharp alcoholic edge on top of the malty base. I found the earlier versions to be malty and mellow. The subtle mellow character is lost. Too bad (for me).
