Bottle into tulip. Dark ruby Amber. Not much aroma. Some hints of bread and yeast. Taste is a bit spicy from the hop, dry. Not a lot of malt flavor. Metallic aftertaste which is off putting. Some dried fruit notes. Meh.

UPDATED: NOV 22, 2015 This hop forward winter warmer has a nice medium-bodied toffee malt backbone with hints of brown sugar and earthy spicy hops. Long mildly bitter finish. Pours reddish brown with tons of beige lacing. Hints of plastic and hot alcohol notes invade the otherwise pleasing finish.

3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pours reddish copper with a one finger tan head which fades to very little lacing. Aroma is of toasted bready malts, sweet malts, caramel, dark fruits, toffee, brown sugar, and some light booze. Taste is about the as the aroma with the addition of some light pine and spicy hops. Has a medium body with a semi-creamy mouthfeel and a mostly sweet, long finish. Overall, a pretty nice winter warmer.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
bottle @ Party Town / Florence KY --- Clear dark amber color, two finger beige head, broken curtain of lace. Aroma of malt. Taste is bracing malt that stays big through a carbonated swallow, moving to a spicy, hoppy finish. Solid brew, but also heavy and off-balance.
