3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
THOUGHTS: Nice. Very malty. Nice on a snowy night. More hops came out as it warmed.
TECHNICAL: Bottle. Poured a medium brown with a small, tan head that mostly diminished and left virtually no lacing. The aroma had moderate caramel; hints of chocolate; light pine hops; raisin; toffee; brown sugar; a little dark fruit; cake; and a little booze. The initial flavor was moderately sweet and lightly bitter; while the finish was heavily sweet and lightly bitter with an average duration. There was caramel malt, toffee, frown sugar, pine hops, citrus hops, brown cake, raisin, dark fruit, cherry, and hints of chocolate. The medium body was slightly syrupy with fizzy carbonation and a slightly metallic finish.

I liked it a lot. Malty and chocolate were the things that stood out to me. Very solid seasonal beer.

Had off tap at the brewery. Aroma of sweaty socks. Copper to dark brown. Candied brown sugar middle and finishes sweet and slightly dry. Not a huge alc presence, very much like a brown ale.

12 oz bottle. Pours brown with tall, long lasting, fluffy off-white head. Aroma is of herbal, piney hops, spices, dark fruit, brown sugar, coffee and caramel malt. Body is full and tangy. Taste is similar to aroma. Finish is long and dry. It was a perfect brew to drink after shoveling snow.

From bottle. Pours a dark red with a touch of beige head. Quite a bit of carbonation. Muted nose with bits of roasted malts. Some bright piney hoppiness up front, giving way to a chocolate finish. Good kick. Solid winter seasonal.

Pours a read brown with a pretty white head that dissipates into film. Aroma is simple and unappealing: caramel, grass, and dough. Palate is worse... heartburn city. Did not enjoy. Won’t buy again. Will not drink again.

Deep dark chocolate malt on the palate with hints of coffee. Very warming with alcohol only mild bitterness kind of sweet and bitter at the same time like dark chocolate. A little bit of toffee notes as well.

2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
From bottle to glass. Massively over-carbonated on the pour! Caramel, dark fruit and wet cardboard aromas. Clear chestnut with massive taupe head. Poured like a gusher and took minutes to settle down. Deep fruit and malty sweet flavors with some slight oxidation. Some complexity in the flavor profile but it was hard to get passed the pour. As it warmed, it really took on an infected taste and i kept reducing the score throughout the pour.
