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.

fiercepanda (615) - 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.

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.

jlruthven (607) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - NOV 13, 2013
Bottle, pretty clear orange-amber, finger of white head. Nose is grainy, almost rye-like, British hops evident. A little spruce, a little juniper, lemon pith. Oily body, dry finish, astringent, hint of whisky malt. Cool beer.

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.

bartzluke (595) - Oklahoma, USA - APR 22, 2015
7.25 version. 12 oz pour from refrigerated bottle into Spiegelau IPA glass. Fairly aggressive pour produced a small white head that dissipated fairly quickly. A little bit of foam lingered though. Hazy copper with lots of carbonation. Nose is awesome. Kind of a caramel tropical fruit. Both strong malt and strong hops. Same goes for the taste. Mouthfeel is creamy and smooth. Taste is a strong buttery/biscuity backbone with great tropic fruit and citrus up from. Very well balanced with both the hops and the malt coming through strong. I am very impressed.

Fairly rich, malty coco flavor. A little spice in there with a hint of bitterness. not bad from Big Sky

obisbeer (568) - Barcelona, SPAIN - JUN 22, 2004
Thick head, rich brown color. Molasses nose, some steelyness. Creamy start with fruit, carmel, chocolate and some hops. Well balanced, not a bad winter session beer.

chimpscampee (566) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - DEC 1, 2006
6.2 alcohol is not that noticeable. I like this more than the few other "winter" spiced ales and largers I’ve tried

howie (549) - DeForest, Wisconsin, USA - OCT 10, 2005
Amber brown body, short white head. Sweet malty, slightly woody, slightly herbal aromas. Sweet maltiness with a tannic tea-like bitterness in the background. Leans too far to the sweet side and never really satisfies.
