Our winter ale has a gorgeous mahogany hue, a hint of hazelnuts, and a finish reminiscent of mocha and toffee. No spices, just a perfect blend of five specialty malts. Cellarable for 3+ years.

imagine the shock when i went into my local beer store and found this, considering that i live in a state where 6%+ is banned... at any rate. pours out dark colored red with a tan head that lingers for a bit. smells spicy and has a nice hint of alcohol to go with it. taste is sweet and a hint spicy. im going to drink 6 of these and see how they treat me. a nice beer for certain.

(draft) I was sure I was enjoying a nice spiced ale but I see in the commercial deScription that the flavor is all malts. Very good, though a little sneaky as the alcohol doesnít really register.

On tap at the Flying Saucer in Charlotte. Iím wondering how an 8% beer managed to sneak its way into a NC bar. Anyway, deep, deep brown coloring with some off-white head that laced onto the glass nicely. Nutty flavor with nice warming feel as it went down. Iíll be ordering this one again frequently.

Pours a smooth dark briwn with a small beige head. Malty, nutty aroma. Mostly malts and nuts in the flavor with a small trace of coffee. Alcohol very well hidden. Great ale.

Pretty ruby brown, relatively clear appearance. Head is foamy and fuzzy, like a tan cashmere sweater. Smell is sweet, caramel and cherries, not much else. NIce and strong flavor punch. Roasted, bitter hops, almost astringent, coupled with sweet malt, chocolate, winter spices, earth and a tad of alcohol. Aftertaste is sweet and roasty. Decent beer, but I donít know about this 92% rating.

2004 Bottle:
Cola coloured body with a nice thinnish off-white coloured head. Aroma of caramel, light english hops and some strong nuttiness. Medium to Light-bodied; Strong maltiness up front with some sweetness shortly following. No spices to mention, more of a mellow sweetness and toasty malt flavour. Aftertaste shows some metal and a light bitterness. Overall, a decent winter seasonal-no spices, but good with burnt sugars and english hops. I sampled this twelve ounce bottle purchased by jon[r888710] at Chevy Chase Wine & Liquors in Washington, D.C. on 14-November-2004, with jon. Thanks for the beer :-)

12 oz bottle. Brown and clear with a tan head. Malty carmel aroma, with some fruitiness. Malty flavor, with some chocolate notes as well. Slight hops in the finish, along with some pleasant malt dryness. A touch of alcohol noted.

Pours a dark reddish brown with a small biege head. Malts and chocolate on the nose. Full and thick mouthfeel. Dark fruits, a little bit of spice, chocolate, and a dash of hops on the tongue. Nice lingering aftertaste. This a good holiday seasonal. Great for a cool crisp fall evening.
