A frothy white head appears upon pouring, leaving traces of lacing around the glass as the liquid falls. Smooth and creamy, there's some serious weight to the mouthfeel with a good amount of warmth lingering after each swallow. Sweet malt and doughy notes are jazzed up with accents of peppery spice, citrus pith and a touch of honey on the close. This is one brew that offers more strength and power to the traditionally light style.
