Pour is a dark red with a large white head. Aroma is a dank oily hop with some sweet caramel malt. Flavor is more of the sweet caramel malt with a nice hop and something like a ripe red grape at the end. This was a decent beer with heavy malt and a decent hop. My bottle said 8.5% abv.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
2014 winter 8.5%. Murky color of reddish brown heady foam, good lace. Aroma is sweet vinious planty musty malty dry toast a bit of alcohol. Not real impressive and kind of a musty old nutty modly aroma. TAste is smooth creamy, caramel malts,somewhat sweet but not overly, some roast mildly and some planty hops with some mint character. From what I remember I like the summer version better, this tastes a bit old but maltier.
