Aka Snowmaggedon(?); dark brown with ruby hilights and lasting foamy beige head; aroma is light; Flava is hint of vanilla and raisin(?); feels medium and creamy; finishes dry then as it fades it becomes extremely bitter on the back of the tongue like aspirin.

Brown, clear, ruby edges. Dark fruits and malt aroma, but not very strong. Dry taste, boozy, dull. Very little hop character.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
This beer is a complex color, a mixture of brown, red, and orange, blended into a dark body with a creamy tan head. A moderately sweet aroma, featuring some caramel malts and fruity undertones. Upon drinking, the beer was first sweet and wet, but that faded away, being replaced by a finishing kick of alcohol. The beer had a dense body with light-average carbonation; very drinkable. Needless to say, it warmed me up a bit!

3.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Mostly clear, orange ale with a large, frothy, off-white/barely orange head. Good retention with cirrus lacing. Big aroma with blasts of evergreen and peach and lesser notes of leather and cotton candy. Well-hopped and moderately bitter, but so rich and malty that it leans a touch too far toward the sweet side. Full-bodied and syrupy with mild carbonation. Lengthy, sweet, grassy finish. Not balanced enough for the style, but still a very drinkable, warming Winter beer.
