Scratch Beer 16 – 2008

12 oz single bottle.
Winter Warmer??? I thought it was more like an American IPA.
Dark, mahogany pour with good clarity in the body. Head is small and clears quickly to give a thin, off-white collar and some film on the surface of the beer.
Nose gives away a little alcohol and some more solvent like character. Not much else.
Tastes are bitter rather than spiced. Very American IPA like in terms of aggressive hops. This is tempered by some malt but the whole combo is not very good. It has a dry finish. Lacks a typical combo of spices and sweetness and the beer is a bit of a peppery, bitter mess.
Unbalanced, difficult to drink and not enjoyable. Bitter and dry which are both out of place.
