This bottle conditioned winter ale pours orange with a bit of brown. The head rolls out large but settles to just a whisp. The aroma is malty with a touch of roastiness and figs with orange peel at the end. The flavor is fruity orange with sweeter brown malts that give it cocoa hint and finished with a juniper, piney hop. Serve at cellar temp (55) or above. This beer has a nice set of flavors that blend well at warmer temps but the not too sweet malt gets cut out if it is too cold.
