3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Good reddish copperish pour w/ a thin white head that leaves nice lacing. The aroma is of soft hops & a little bit of malt. The taste is similar. Basic ingredients w/ nothing special going on. It is very nice on the palate & quite drinkable at 7+%. No real flaws but nothing stands out either!

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
I can dig this winter brew. Not spiced holiday-esque shit. A hoppy red ale with an alcohol warmth. Some candy sugar sweetness too. Well done.

12oz pour at Burger Tap Shake in DC. Pours a murky, deep amber with some thin, creamy, eggshell head. Nose has a mix of herbal, piney hops, some orange peel too and plenty of sweet malty notes, toffee, brown sugar, biscuit. Flavor follows right along, malty, sweet, chewy caramel, roast apple, orange, pine, mild potpourri. Fairly smooth finish.

On tap at RIBCO, pours a clear dark reddish brown with an off white head, the aroma is sweet, lots of caramel and a little bit of dark fruit as well, the flavor is what you would expect, caramel and fruit with some bread sweetness in the finish, not my favorite and a little sweet for me, but still not bad.

Clear, medium brown beer with a huge foamy beige head. Caramel and fruitiness on the nose. Nice balanced hops with medium bitterness - really nice. Some bread, caramel, soap, grape fruit. Easy to drink yet not too light either. This is a really good and balanced winter beer. Lovely surprise!
