rich brown with a huge creamy head and a huge lace down the side, this looks very inticing to say the least! Smell was of roasted nuts with a hint of hops. Caramel sweetness undertones as well, smells thick and very fresh. The taste was very full. Nice roasted tones and caramel was the predominant flavors. Very complex though as there was much hoppiness at both the beginning and the finish. The finish was very nice, very dry and left you looking for more.

12oz bottle from the 12 Beers of Winter Mix pack. Pours a semi-translucent brown with a moderately sized frothy head. Nice lacing. Interesting aroma of hops upfront followed by the caramel and roasted malts. Taste is only a small bit of the hops and mostly the roasted malts and typical Brown Ale flavors. Overall the taste isn't quite as hoppy as the aroma would make you believe but it does have more of a hop presence than a normal Brown Ale. Decent brew but not one of the better ones in the pack.
