Diamond Knot Ho! Ho!

CIMG4559

We’ve got a local winter warmer today. Diamond Knot, unfortunately, has a terrible website. I have to open a PDF just to see the beers they brew…and with the smallest amount of information. I’ve enjoyed this beer on tap, but it’s been awhile.

Stats
Winter Warmer. 8.5% ABV. Washington. Winter Seasonal.

Nice dark caramel color. Very little head on this one.

It’s got a nice winter warmer nose with some brown sugar sweetness and caramel. Nice baked apple and some dark fruits. Very malty nose. Nice cherry aroma as well.

Fantastic full bodied mouthfeel. I really like the thickness of it.

It’s not as sweet and bright as the nose would suggest. It’s got a hop bite with some dark fruits and pine. The hop bitterness comes through, but with a decent balance. Long finish of brown sugar and pine.

I’m liking this NW style winter warmer. Definitely one to check out from this state. 88 points.
