Bottle: Courtesy of DarkElf via trade. Malty aroma of caramel and toffee with a touch of hops and metal. Pours a very dark amber with a decent off-white head with some staying power. Flavor is a watery caramel up front and some light chocolate in the middle. Finishes with some weak nutty metallic hops. Rather mediocre if you ask me.

Bought this because it was on clearance at BevMo. Didnít smell like much, sort of chocalatey I guess. Flavor is of caramel, toffee maybe some chocaolate, and a sort of musty, earthy flavor. Not bad, gives a nice warmth to the belly.

kramer (4858) - Sunbury, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 9, 2006
12 oz bottle, via Indiana_Red. Pours a clear mahogany with a amall, fine-bubbled, off-white head. Low citric hop aroma over a sweet toffee and caramel malt base. Accent notes of tea and perfumy hops. Very fruity and malty flavor with a lightly bitter finish. A little too sweet for my tastes. Medium bodied with a sticky mouthfeel and pleasant low carbonation composed of fine bubbles. Not a bad beer, but nothing outstanding. Overall, itís pretty sweet with an alcoholic kick that gets a little tiring on the palate by the end of the bottle.

Bottle

Pours tea brown with nice lacing. Aroma is a nutty hops. Flavor is bitter and hoppy, with a slight roasted malt flavor. Palate is watery. Overall, would make a nice session beer.

OK..nothing special about this one. Was hoping for more but was pretty bland. Standard winter ale...roasty flavor and toned down hops. This one is big on the malt with no hops. Probably a good session brew after hitting the slopes but not much more.

Another really nice rich winter beer. Sweet maltiness in the aroma and the flavor is fruity with some nuttiness coming through as well. Some toffee and caramel flavors are quite dominant with a little bit of hops coming through in the aftertaste.

12oz. bottle. Dark amber brown color with a small light tan head. Caramel, toffee, and herbal hop aromatics. Smooth caramel flavors with some raisin. Slight bitter vegetal hop component in the finish. Mouthfeel is medium, rather smooth.

mjg74 (2487) - La Mesa, California, USA - DEC 22, 2005
Bottled. Pours a medium/dark amber color. Sweet malty aroma. Some english type hops as well, I believe. Somehwta sweet up front. Mildly hoppy and malty. A rather mild tasting brew. Reminds be of a sweet/strong bitter. Has a sublime finish that I canít put my finger on.
