Pours a dark amber color with off-white head. Tastes of hops, caramel, and malts. Pretty smooth and drinkable. Good beer.

Delirium (636) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - JAN 7, 2008
UPDATED: JAN 8, 2008 Bottle. Pours brown-red with a small beige head. Aroma is caramel malt, various winter spices, chocolate, and some woody hops. Flavor is woody hops, metallic hops, some light fruit, caramel malt, vanilla, and winter spices. Gets sweeter as it warms. Not bad, but another in a long line of middle-of-the-road sweet/spiced winter warmers.

Quake1028 (633) - Tampa, Florida, USA - NOV 28, 2007
Another NW beer courtesy of Ibrew2or3. The man is unstoppable. Amber colored body, with a small tan head. Fades quickly, leaving no lace, only a ring of foam at the edges of the beer. Nose is full of hops, very spicy and citrusy, along with caramel malts and some other spices. Also smells a little musty, but not bad and really doesn’t harm the beer. Flavor is resiny hops, pine, citrus and balancing sweet malts. Medium bodied, oily slick on the palate. FInish is bitter, drying hops and an ending sweet malt note. Solid.

twindadplus2 (627) - Wisconsin, USA - NOV 4, 2005
Bottle. Brownish red with a medium sized, creamy head. Aroma is a lot of roasted, nutty malt and caramel with a hint of fruity sweetness. Flavor is malty sweet with an acidic bitterness that complements the malt well. Finishes with a nice bittersweet alcohol taste. A good beer worth keeping on hand through the winter..

jetzler (622) - oklahoma city, Oklahoma, USA - DEC 27, 2007
Bottle, Some malts, a bit metallic aroma, pours a dark amber with a tan head. Nice malty flavor light hops and a touch of spiciness. Pretty good, as are most of their brews.

mbgrayson (617) - Anaconda, Montana, USA - JAN 22, 2011
UPDATED: FEB 8, 2014 Twelve ounce bottle, pours a light copper, with white head. Strong aroma of hops and grass. Taste is similiar, with notes of malt in the background. Not a huge fan of this one. Still, gotta love Big Sky Brewery.

Steib (613) - Queen Creek, Arizona, USA - DEC 26, 2008
Golden brown color with a rich malt aroma. Smooth slightly bitter notes. An interesting beer with to me an odd aftertaste. Taste a little like a nutty caesar salad, strange even after a few bottles.

fiercepanda (608) - Missouri, USA - NOV 5, 2011
A clear red amber beer with a small off-white head. The aroma is herbal, citrusy, and grainy. The flavor is quite floral with some pine and sweet malt taste, but definitely full flavored. Not great, but enjoyable enough.

auderale (605) - Minot, North Dakota, USA - JAN 6, 2008
Bottle: Reddish brown pour with little to no head. A woody, fruity, caramel aroma. Sweet, malty flavor. This tasted much better than the aroma. Not too bad.
