Pours a dark brown color with a thin khaki colored head. The head is thin, but has good retention. Some spotty lacing.
The aroma is a combination of caramel and toffee malt with dark fruits.
The taste is dark and creamy with a blend of sweet caramel and toffee malts and milk chocolate that quickly give way to a dark fruit flavor that lasts to the finish. Some warm from the alcohol is noticeable in the finish and aftertaste. A slightly sweet earthy flavor in the aftertaste.
Medium body with light to medium carbonation. Creamy smooth mouthfeel.
Overall, another very enjoyable beer from Central Waters. Nice flavors that work perfectly together making for a great winter beer. The mouthfeel is especially nice on this beer and seems to fit the style and the flavors well. Try one!
