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.

AWMiller (512) - Mansfield, Texas, USA - DEC 16, 2011
Quite the hoppy winter ale with just enough sweet caramel undertones to make for an easy drinker. Having a hard time with the classification of this brew - some sites show this to be a strong ale but it is more along the lines of a hoppy amber ale. I’d recommend some spicy chicken fajitas or perhaps some spicy fish tacos to pair up with this brew.

Crispy34 (496) - Texas, USA - NOV 24, 2014
12oz bottle. Aroma is a light hoppy scent. Appearance is a clear bronze. Taste is a hoppy but not bitter flavor. Some what sweet. Palate is sweet, but otherwise even. Overall, a good beer. My Dad loves it, and I agree it is a good pale ale like beer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Brandon1989 (496) - Euless, Texas, USA - JAN 28, 2015
2014 Bottle:7.2% ABV. Pours a hazy golden/orange color with a thick off white head. The aroma is hops, caramel malts, and bread. The taste is sweeter up front, possibly the caramel. There is also some distinct pepper to this beer as well. I also pick up a moderate amount of hops and bitterness as well. The finish is crisp and has some breadiness as well. It is hard to pin point but there is almost some almond in the flavor as well. Great beer I highly recommend.

shendrix (478) - Waukesha, Wisconsin, USA - JAN 1, 2007
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.
