Bit of a funky aroma upon pouring. a little too sweet for my liking - but Iím sure if it was winter in Montana I would want something chewy like this.

JK (4844) - St. Louis Park, Minnesota, USA - JAN 27, 2005
Malt and caramel aromas. Very dark orange with a head that lasts. More malt and caramel in the taste. Seems like an English strong without being ruined by alcohol flavors.

12oz. bottle. Dark amber brown color with a small light tan head. Caramel, toffee, and herbal hop aromatics. Smooth caramel flavors with some raisin. Slight bitter vegetal hop component in the finish. Mouthfeel is medium, rather smooth.

crizay (1050) - Brook Park, Ohio, USA - SEP 29, 2006
UPDATED: OCT 4, 2006 Thank to Degarth. Pours a dark amber almost brown. Bigtime crystal malt in this one, very sweet caramel and brown sugar come through, followed big by citrusy hops, not bad, but also not very christmas like, good beer just not really my style, too hoppy.

Felt thin, then again for as cheap as this was I didnít expect it to bee to thick or pack too much of a buzz. Good but not outstanding. Iíve heard so much about Moose Drool that I figured Iíd try a single of this since it was available at Blue Max but I canít see myself trying any Big Sky again since they tend to offer only middle-of-the-road stuff.

Bottled at City Beer, San Francisco. Mahogany colour, smal head. Roasty and nutty. Malt driven with clean rounded mouthfeel and medium boy. Mild and warming with notes of butter and tobacco. Low bitterness.

greenhorn1 (850) - Mission Viejo, California, USA - JAN 5, 2008
12 oz bottle. Pours a clear mahogany with a one finger creamy head. Nice head retention and lively carbonation. Aroma is a bit funky almost metallic. Unfortunately, the finish had an overwhelming metallic taste. Initial flavor of roasted malt, nutty and almost undetectable spices. Easy drinking, but there are much better winter ales out there.

DTM (798) - Winters, California, USA - JAN 6, 2008
Poured a brown color with a hint of red. Malty flavor of carmel and winter spices. Very smooth and medium bodied. Average beer.

hopdog (9570) - Lansdale, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 1, 2008
12oz bottle. Poured a medium to deeper orangish color with a small sized off white head. Aromas of toffee, caramel, roast, and chocolate. Tastes of toffee, roasted and toasted malts, and lightly fruity.

Gypsy19 (726) - California, USA - JAN 11, 2009
Pours a clear dark amber with a half-inch head. Flavor is of grapefruit, dark fruit, a little bit of honey. Thereís an initial pungency in the body that wears off slowly. Not bad overall, though quite forgettable.
