On The First Day of Christmas My True Love Gave to Me!

HO! HO! Winter Ale – Diamond Knot Brewing – Winter Warmer

Appearance: Deep red-brown, creamy off white and quickly dissipating head.

Aroma: Toasted nuts (chestnuts roasting on an open fire?), nutmeg, caramel.

Taste: Roasted malt, sweet grains, caramel and some winter warmer spices and coffee. Hints of citrus rind on the back end.

Mouthfeel: Viscous consistency, light carbonation, full body, bit longer than average wet finish.

My experience with Diamond Knot beer is either outstanding or blah and I am pleased to tell you this one is perfectly awesome for the season. Unfortunately the scent drops its score as it leaves you with a “what am I really going to taste?” feeling         -86/100-Diamond Knot HO HO Winter Ale
