2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle. Light brown beer with zippo head. Aroma of sweet malt and jelly toast. Really. Stawberry jam I think. Taste is sweet and mouthfeel is average. Does not taste very strong. Fruitiness, including strawberries, is present and no hop flavors detected. While I am not a hophead, there needs to be more in this beer. Not so much for flavor, just needs a little more balancing bitterness. Like Iíve said before, this brewery seems to make lighter bodied beers than is normal for each style.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
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.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
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.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
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.

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
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.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
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.

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 Iíve had this season. Winterbraun was a little better.
