HOWL - Winter Seasonal (cool evil eyes label ).

Poured from 12oz bottle -best by date wasn't stamped .

Poured dark motor oil black, one finger head that dissipated quickly leaving behind a thin tan lacing.

Smell was of burnt coffee with toasted malts.

Taste - Burnt coffee, mild toffee ,roasted malts, maybe a hint of vanilla.

Drinkabilty was very good-This is one of the easiest brews to drink I have ever had - I would definitely recommend this and will be headed to the store to find some more before it's season is over.
