Recommended by a coworker who knows his beer, so I had to try it. There isn’t much aroma, a sweet, faint coffee. Color is a dark amber, and not much head retention. Taste reminds of a doppelbock or, perhaps, a brown ale. Brown sugar sweetness hides the alcohol well. Aftertaste is clean, with essentially no hop bitterness, and mouthfeel is exceptionally smooth. Malts are the focus here. Exceptionally easy drinker. It’s much more in the spirit of a winter warmer than some of the too-hoppy west coast warmers I’ve tasted recently. This is the first 5/5 I will have awarded a beer since the Yeti Stout!
