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.

jlruthven (589) - 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.

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

obisbeer (565) - 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.

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.

VitaminR (540) - Colorado, USA - FEB 9, 2008
Slight raisins on the nose. Burnt orange. Not much sweetness, almost "soapy quality. Not very well balanced. Good body, needs more carbonation. Way better winter beers out there.

Cold 12oz bottle: Pours a clear reddish amber with minimal light tan bubbles. Rich malts, wood, earthy hops, fruit, spice and some molasses. Oily texture and moderately carbonated. Ending is warm, malty and sweet with notes of fruit and flowers.
