Bursting with rich tobacco and toffee aromas, there's a woody, spruce-like character that likely comes from being brewed with oak chips. There is a thin line of heat that rolls from the first sniff to the last sip, making this the kind of beer you'd want to drink outside while ice fishing, or just standing in the middle of a blizzard. It'll warm you up and make you not care about the cold. A malt-derived fruitiness of raisin, plum and fortified grapes give it a brandy-like finish. John Holl

What Is Blind Tasting?

All tastings reported in the Buying Guide are performed blind. Typically, products are tasted in peer-group flights of from 5-8 samples. Reviewers may know general information about a flight to provide context—vintage, variety or appellation—but never the producer or retail price of any given selection. When possible, products considered flawed or uncustomary are retasted.
