3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
From a 12 fl oz / 355mL bottle into a tasting glass.
Aroma: Sweet malts, and lots of spices! Thereís definitely some ginger in this.
Appearance: Translucent yellow / orange.
Taste: Very nice, full of spice and a slight citrusy kiss.
Palate: Nice body, longer-than-short finish.
Overall: Had this beer at a tasting, and more than a few people werenít too crazy about it. I really liked it though; it has a really nice spiciness that I enjoyed a lot.

3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours golden amber; good, lingering head; nice lacing. Surprisingly pleasant mouthfeel despite the overall dominant maltiness. Subtle hint of weed, dirty finish. Solid ABV helps make this a solid winter beer.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
A very nice dark amber with a small tan head. Aroma of malt and caramel. Medium chewy palate with little carbonation. Flavor is mostly malty with some toffee and nutty flavors. A good beer, but too one dimensional.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
Poured from a bottle: Nice, rich & nutty aroma. Copper-colored with ruby edges. Decent tan head that settles into a good lacing. Initial taste is nutty toffee followed by mild hopping. Full mouthfeel and "just right" carbonation. This brew is very good.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Amber-brown pour leaving a small off white frothy head that mostly diminishes. Sweet malty flavor with light lacing in the glass leaving a creamy finish. MUSH ON you huskies! Only 3 of these in the store to take home....would like to "sample" a few more.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Copper with large white head. Aroma of floral/earthy hops and malt. Medium body with floral/earthy hop bitterness upfront and a nice malt backbone. Not what I was expecting from a Winter Ale

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Reddish brown with a tiny white head. Looks very carbonated. Smells of caramel, hops and malt. Taste hops, caramel and malt and has that wet dog flavor.

nice sweet malty aroma, kind of spicy, pours dark red with thick foamy head, exceptionally smooth and creamy taste, very well balanced, rich and tasty, sweet and spicy, second best winter brew Iíve had this season. Winterbraun was a little better.
