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.

UPDATED: NOV 22, 2007 I love it when the holidays roll in and we get to buy this beer! A deep amber color and a darker lacy head. It has a very nutty, alcohol flavor that makes you want to move on to the next bottle. Happy Holidays.

ebrowner88 (123) - Rice, Minnesota, USA - APR 11, 2008
UPDATED: APR 25, 2008 Beautiful deep brown/amber color. 2 finger head. Sweet caramel malt with a little pear nose. Heavier and more complex then I would have expected. Malty taste, sweet, more creamy mouthfeel then a brown ale but similar initial taste. Flavor turns roasted chocolate at finish with very little bitterness. you can tell a lot of thought went into the choice of malts. Very good beer. I would drink again.

Prunish aroma along with roasted coffee. Semi-carbonated, not much lace on glass. Oily mouthfeel. Malty at first taste, then nice dry finnish. A good beer.

CLeclercq1961 (118) - Temecula, California, USA - OCT 18, 2015
Hazy mahogany pour with pretty big tan foamy head almost pillow like. Aroma of toffee and caramel with a sugary scent to it. Flavor of some plum and mostly caramel. Had some nutty character as well. Sweet finish good beer.

Kuzo (116) - Allentown, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 13, 2010
Pours a mahogany with thin tan head. Aroma is roasted nutty malts with hints of cocoa. Flavor is strong roasted malts, coffee, with a nice dry bitterness on the finish. This one is a bit heavy on the palate but has a crisp bite. The alcohol is hidden well which makes this drinkable. Has a slight resemblance to a scotch ale. Very good winter seasonal.

pepperford (115) - robbinsdale, Minnesota, USA - FEB 28, 2008
pleasant dark red coloring with a little lacing on the glass. Nutty, malty and spicy taste with a rounded, almost oily mouth feel. A nice winter beer. Would go good with beef tips or a nutty cheese, or maybe nuts.

Joel (114) - Massachusetts, USA - JAN 5, 2015
Pours dark brown with a foamy thick head. Aromas of toffee, caramel, and sweet malts. Tastes sweet and nutty with toffee, and caramel. Hops are well hidden beneath the malts. Nice winter ale in the English strong ale style. High alcohol content and the big malt profile makes this one a sipper.
