Aroma pine and floral. Flavor is bread and pine . Medium body. Good drinkable beer. Has quite a hoppy kick to it.

Nexxus (261) - Apple Valley, Minnesota, USA - NOV 18, 2003
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.

NeonLX (261) - Wisconsin, USA - FEB 23, 2005
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.

RasterMaster (258) - , Oklahoma, USA - SEP 25, 2008
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.

BeaverBrown (245) - Portland, Oregon, USA - JUN 15, 2003
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.

Hab40oz (242) - Grants Pass, Oregon, USA - NOV 3, 2004
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 I’ve had this season. Winterbraun was a little better.

Decent beer. Floral and hop aroma. Nice grassy or earthy aftertaste. Very smooth and drinkable at 7.2abv. Nicely done.

cblado (232) - Washington, USA - NOV 13, 2011
12 oz bottle. Pours a nice, crystal-clear goldenrod color, foamy, pearly head as well. Some lacing. Aroma is nice floral hops,some sweet banana as well. Flavor is very bitter hops with an alcohol backside. Not a very complex flavor, but strong. Palate feels a bit thin for a strong ale. Overall though, I enjoyed this.

foyle (221) - Wyoming, USA - MAR 2, 2014
Appearance: pours a 1" off white head that slowly recedes with some lacing. Amber color with plenty of streaming carbonation. Aroma: rich aroma of yeast rolls, pungent earthy hops, some caramel and raisins. Mouthfeel: medium bodied and a bit sticky with a pleasant finish. Flavor: complex combination of bread dough, sweet caramel and toffee, fruity raisin, significant bitter earthy hops and with a slight astringent alcohol burn in the finish. Overall: a pleasant sipper on a cold winter day and appropriate to the style.
