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.

mjg74 (2675) - Salem, Oregon, 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 can’t put my finger on.

tennisjoel (1194) - Rochester, Minnesota, USA - DEC 7, 2005
UPDATED: DEC 17, 2005 Malty aroma. Caramel / Toffee, nuts present. Thin lasting head. Decent lacing. Attractive dark red in color. Would be a little better if a little more hops were present, but this isn’t too bad. Maybe a little sticky on the palate, otherwise pretty good.
