Winterfest 2013. I did not like this as much as the rest of the crowd, even though I think Olvalde makes great beer. Heavily roasted malt aroma and rosemary. Flavor has more roasted malt, but the rosemary overpowers any other flavors and aromas that might be there.

Minnesota Winterfest 2013. Cask. Dark brown color with a large head. Strong rosemary aroma, which is very much the same in the flavor. Light rye. The taste eventually drifts to a general herby character. Quite nice.

On tap at Winterfest 2013. Dark brown pour with big head. Big time spruce with this, like sucking on a tree, but the taste worked.
