Nice winter warmer of an extreme dark amber color and a tiny and light beige foam.
Smell is a bit sweet, the roasted malts notes are the highlight and come with coffe notes and some spiciness/hoppiness. Taste is similar with some notes of cola and just a hint of fruity tones. I could feel some yeasty notes in the last sips too.
Body is not high, but delicate and cabonation is appropriate.
A good beer, but not spetacular.
The ABV is not high, but it warmed me a bit up!

Dark amber with puffy tan head that leaves nice cathedral lace. Musty wet grain sack with some apple skin and foil on the nose.
Toasted rusks, some chocolate malt, and stewed cranberry, a sour roasty bite, with big clean spicy hops.
Orange skin end and numbing hoppy linger. Medium, chewy, plenty of fizz.

Strange hybrid. Premium bitter at it's heart, but the Cascade citrus and roast barley throw in a twist. Not sure it all hangs together, but more interesting than a cookie cutter Christmas beer.
