Appearance
Chestnut brown-colored ale with brilliant clarity and a rich, white head.

Aroma
Like the season, there’s a lot to take in. Starts with a malty nuttiness with notes of dark chocolate and toffee. A hint of hops swirls in the background.

Taste
The taste starts with assertive malty caramel notes with a touch of dark chocolate. It’s quickly balanced with a small amount of hop bitterness to keep the malt sweetness from building up.

A medium-bodied winter ale with a medium level of carbonation for balance.

Finish
Rich toffee and caramel finish with a hint of bitter dark chocolate.
