3.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Sample at the brewery. Pours light copper with a small creamy head. Aroma is faint, some light toast and spices. Taste is a little better. Light toasty malt along with some cinnamon and caramel. Malty sweet finish. A little chewy even in the mouthfeel. Decent, easy to drink beer for the winter.

A really great color with a frosty head. A solid quality I’m noticing on all Wolverine, that great clean crisp feel. A big difference on this one from the others I’ve had is the hop character. A lot stronger in this one. Followed up with a caramel finish. Hit the nail on the head for that winter/Christmas style drink.

Bottle. I didn't like this one. Very sweet and malty with off notes like something's gone bad.

Bottle shared by Sean, thanks! Pours a clear deep amber with a tan head that dissipates to the edges. Aroma has a good amount of earthy grains with a bit of weak wheat and light spice. Flavor has some deep grain with a hint of wheat and light spice.

12oz Bottle. Thanks Sean! Solid carameled malt aroma. Toffee and nuts. Clear amber-brown pour, with a tan head. Flavors are solid. A nice vienna-like malt structure, with clean malt flavors, and a nice snap to it. There’s a little softness to the edges that keeps it warming and comfortable. Chewy, toothy, and rich. A good winter beer.
