Hoppy aroma backed by caramelized sugar, dough, and fresh malts. Sweet flavor. Pretty drinkable. Your swill drinking brother might like this.

On draught: Medium brown ale with average head on it. Hints of cinnamon and light citrus fruit is balanced with the malt. Nice light body to it, so you could have a couple and feel full.

JPDIPSO (4956) - Wauwatosa, Wisconsin, USA - NOV 6, 2002
Clear orange amber color with a lasting light golden/tan head. Aroma of light malt, anise, and stomach acid. Slightly sour orange flavors, along with mild malt. Very sour/bitter finish makes you want to drink something else.

sweet undertones, some malt, bit thin for the style. spice - some spruce? maybe vanilla? bready flavors. lightly hopped. not bad - but I like my winter beers a bit more robust.

This is being bottled in Portland, Oregon now so maybe that’s why I was able to get it in late September. Anyways, at first I wasn’t sure if I like it, but after it warmed up for a minute (open) the flavor profile started to improve. If there are any special spices in there, they don’t come out. Frankly, some of the winter beers out there are over spiced. The head could have lasted a little longer, but there was a tad bit of foam there. Nice amberish color. I would buy this again. NO! Make that, I WILL buy this again.

Medium brown color, medium head. A medium bodied brown ale, spiced with nutmeg and cinnamon. Slightly sweet malts, slight orange taste. Good flavor. Mouthfeel is full and round. Finish is smooth. Aftertaste is slightly bitter.

PorterPounder (5704) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - AUG 12, 2002
Bit of a funky aroma upon pouring. a little too sweet for my liking - but I’m sure if it was winter in Montana I would want something chewy like this.

Oakes (12789) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAR 18, 2002
Bright orangey-brown; malty, demerara-like flavours, some toffee but overall a rather light effort for a winter ale. Other than some fleeting tosaty chocolate notes there is nothing to balance the sweetness, either, which doesn’t help matters.
