Pours a gorgeous brown with a thin head. Smells of scotch, malt, and sweetness. Pretty good flavors of smoke, peat, and malt. Just the right amount of sweetness to balance things out.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
From a bottle into a pint glass with a small head. Pours an amber color. Smells of alcohol and almost a slight bit of honey to my broken nose. I felt it was a light taste for a winter but the aftertaste stuck around nicely.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
a deeply malty aroma mostly caramel and toffee based.a bit of smoke as well..dark red brown clear liquid,thin tannish head..tastes pretty much like the aroma sweet in its own way but quickly dissipating finish and a bit insubstantial,the flavors good,but the brew is slightly thin and watery compared to other winter ales..its not bad but a little extra texture and strength is missing

Dark amber pour, very light head. Aroma and taste is malty with a slight hop finish. Spice notes throughout and just a bit sweet. Not bad, but better winter brews.

3.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Poured a mahogany color with a two-finger beige head. Aroma is caramel, cereal, hay, and a very faint vanilla. Taste is medium sweetness, lightly bitter, and a lingering salty sweet on the tongue. Overall, it’s easy to drink, not offensive, and nothing special.
