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.

Eyedrinkale (3213) - Astoria, New York, USA - JAN 8, 2004
Bottle. Dark black with decent bubbly tan head. Nutty and malty aroma. Nice lacing. Mostly malty with light hops and chocolate. Bourbon and wood alcohol finish. Very warming, indeed. A really good English Strong Ale.

BeerLimey (2154) - California, USA - JAN 8, 2004
Reddish mahogany, relatively clear appearance, moderate head formation. Malty aroma, caramel and roasty. Sweet nutty malt flavor, some chocolate, decent hop citiric bitterness in the finish.

stubby (334) - Santee, California, USA - JAN 7, 2004
Nice body and beautiful color (dark red). Nice bittering hops, too, if you like that sort of thing. First thing that came to my mind was a dark IPA, which is sort of an oxymoron. Good stuff but certainly not the best beer in their line up.

jeffc666 (1984) - Fairfax, Virginia, USA - DEC 31, 2003
Clear dark mahogany body topped by a mostly frothy (some creaminess) light tan head. Big whiff of caramel and loads of hops. The flavor is huge roasted malt and toffe with tons of spicy bitter hops. Very nice! Full bodied. The finish is surprisingly dry given the big body, the finish is long and very pleasing. A very nice brew.

BückDich (5464) - McCall, Idaho, USA - DEC 30, 2003
Dark ruby mahogany color with off-white creamy head and lacing in sheets of the same color. The aroma is moderately hoppy, spicy (pine) and sweet with caramel malt. The flavor is moderately bitter but well balanced by the underlaying sweetness and the abnormally high final gravity in these winter beers. Finishes dry and spicy but ends quick. A good winter seasonal from another unattainable Colorado brewer.

Sham (1845) - Seattle, Washington, USA - DEC 30, 2003
Fairly dark brown with slightly reddish hues on the edges. Small head of white that leaves litte lace. Malt, hops, and spices are coming through mostly. Nuts are there as well. Again, the flavors are similar. The hops are coming through quite a bit more than malts in the flavors. Some nuts. It says no spices, but I swear there is something in there. Medium body, smooth palate that finishes with a touch of hops. Thanks acrodizer!

jazz88 (2628) - San Francisco, California, USA - DEC 28, 2003
Bottle. Dark brown color with a tan head. A strong toasted nuty malt aroma with a rich flavor producing the same. Medium body with hearty malt finish with caramel toffee and subtle floral hops.

Beaver (1507) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - DEC 27, 2003
The Old Jubilation poured a dark reddish-brown with a medium head that quickly went down to a nice lacing and collar. It had a very appealing citrusy, malt smell. It had a big malt taste with some citrus tones that was nicely balanced with a slightly hoppy finish. Overall, a very nice, highly drinkable holiday brew.

3fourths (8788) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - DEC 24, 2003
UPDATED: OCT 26, 2007 2003 - Dark red with a thick coated head. Smells is a very fresh and robust cherry and wood and alcohol. Creamy and thick with a milk-like texture and some nice dark cherry and charred wood flavors. Really an excellent winter beer with some bourbon flavors coming through towards the end.

12 oz [2002 version, one year later]: Dark brown with just a hind of ruby, a velvety blanket of head rests on top. . . soft aroma of vanilla beans, sweet bourbon whiskey, crystal malts, raisins, and pears. Palate is a bit thin, and after such aromatics a little disappointing. Never-the-less, the flavours still offer nice soft pale malts and a lightly bitter hop balance and a bit of lively carbonation in the finish. More vanilla, some orange zest and faint pine round our a nicely aromatic beer with solid flavours.
