Nice hoppy aroma. Flavor starts with hops but instead of a hoppy punch finishes with a certain maltiness, breadiness. Enjoyable.

foyle (325) - 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.

This beer was really smooth it was not as heavy as I pictured a winter beer to be but it was still smooth

COMRADEJOSH (318) - Ft Hood, Texas, USA - NOV 27, 2013
floral aroma with a carmely taste that uniquely has a hop bite. very warming on the palate better than the rest of other brands winter hop bombs.

cblado (289) - 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.

BeerZack (288) - Asheville, North Carolina, USA - DEC 18, 2012
Sweet, spicy and floral nose. Tases about the same, a bit grainy and sweet up front, but the weird spicy/floral hops do a good job of balancing the overall impression.

lumpsowers (287) - Oklahoma City, Oklahoma, USA - APR 19, 2009
Copper pour, low head, medium lacing. Spicy alcoholic aroma. Nicely carbed with a dry spicy flavor. Piney fruitiness reminiscent of an IPA. Some unpleasant bitterness. Not very complex, an average Winter brew.

waltersrj (280) - Washington, USA - FEB 5, 2010
Dark, deep amber pour with a small off white head. Mild carbonation and no lacing. The nose is grass, citrus, malty, and light fruits. The taste is deep malt, nutty, and light bitterness from the hops. The palate is medium bodies, and somewhat oily.

antisnobJP (275) - St. Michael, Minnesota, USA - DEC 29, 2004
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 I’ve said before, this brewery seems to make lighter bodied beers than is normal for each style.

bottle pours a reddish brown with little to no head. aroma is nutty and malty. taste is light hops, nutty, and malty. a mediocre beer.
