A good brew for a winter evening, with a nose of cherries, a hint of honey, and some lightly earthy notes. Pouring amber with a medium laced head and rinsing across the palate with flavors of dark fruits balanced with a slight honey sweetness, a floral hoppy finish and a warming alcohol blanket.

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

Cloudy garnet with a tain oily broken head. Nose is brown sugar, plums, and alcohol. Flavour features some piney hops and dark fruits. Mouth is watery. Uninventive and reminicent of something from the shiner breweries.

leitrim65 (402) - Seattle, Washington, USA - FEB 7, 2005
Deep mahagoney color with brownish hues and a tan head. The aroma is a mild caramel malt sweetness. Light - medium bodied. Not overwhelming but sweet toffee, caramel, and malt flavors. Lacking in any punch at the finish. However, a pleasant winter ale.

I respect this ale because it’s essentially what it purports to be: a good beer to drink in the "Dog Days of Winter". Coming from Minnesota, it’s been near or below zero for the past few days. I find that, like Powder Hound’s description implies, it’s warming yet not so full bodied that it saps one’s energy. Color is a mix of gold and copper. Aroma is very malty and much like strawberry Turkish Taffy. Flavor is deep, dark malty and bready with a ample amount of hops showing through as well. Linger is surprisingly bitter-hoppy. This is a great winter beer.

microdyke (360) - Portland, Oregon, USA - JUN 22, 2003
A brown clear ale with an off white head. A caramel aroma and a touch sweet. The flavor is bitter up front with caramel and some nuttiness to follow. The bitter does linger a bit.

MoreHead (355) - Minnetonka, Minnesota, USA - JAN 10, 2006
pours brown with red tilt, decent head and lacing. aroma is very interesting, sweet and tangy with the dough, nut, malt, and hops. taste is english, smooth with a nice, short bitter hops ending.

wildbeercat (353) - Tucson, Arizona, USA - APR 5, 2013
From a 12 fl oz / 355mL bottle into a tasting glass. Aroma: Sweet malts, and lots of spices! There’s 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 weren’t too crazy about it. I really liked it though; it has a really nice spiciness that I enjoyed a lot.

this is a nice beer. lots of malts, kinda caramely as well. poured a dark amber with a white head that was quite thick. slightly thick mouth feel as well. Fairly smooth and easy to drink.
