Lacks spice and aromas found in most winter ales, no cinnamon, nutmeg, coriander, cloves notes in the flavors or aromas. Low ABV is not as warming as other winter ales. There is a great hop flavor that is typically uncharacteristic of most winter ales, more bittering hops than aroma hops This is also missing the malty sweetness found in higher gravity winter ales. Overall this is a great strong ale, but not necessarily a great winter ale when compared to the typical styles of other winter ales.
