Bottle: Dark amber pour with a rich, creamy tan head. Nose is malty with a subtle spice. Picking up the ginger and orange peel per the description. Flavor has an increase in intensity, relative to the aroma. A little more maltiness along with a strong orange and ginger presence. Picking up a little cinnamon too, which I could do without. Still, this is flavorful and refreshing overall.

Bomber of Winter Ale. Pours black with ruby edges and a foamy beige head that fades. Aroma has a mild sweet spice. Taste has the same spice which is fairly mild along with roasted malts. Fizzy. Decent, reminds me of a Dr. Pepper.

MilkmanDan (1943) - Eagan, Minnesota, USA - DEC 6, 2004
Deep red-brown. Weird nose, starts out smelling like butterscotch and then immediately jumps over to smelling smoky, no real transition. Very strange. Tastes like grapes with loads of pepper, then gets the quick hit of smokiness. Itís a bit sulfury, kind of like the smell of a match. Does have a nice palate, film coats the mouth nicely.

Clear brown with an off white head. Aroma has some sourness and butterscotch. Taste is smokey and buttery with toasty malts some brown sugar, spiciness and fruits. Very subtle carbonation with a nice medium body.

Old bottle. No date. Pours a graham brown with some surface etchings of light tan foam. Smells of cinnamon, brown sugar and some oxidized malts. Tastes of dark, sweet malts, some rye cracker, some coffee grounds and a bit of cinnamon still. Medium bodied with low carb and an off dry finish. I kinda expected this to be infected or overly brutalized by oxygen, not the case. Decent enough Serving type: bottle 11-01-2012

Could be the best beer that Bitter Root does. Very nice pour out of the bottle. Decent head, with nice sweet malt up front. Hops are there, and it finishes with a strong alcohol taste. Like Kaya said, will be even better in March.

Kaya161 (1128) - San Diego, California, USA - NOV 20, 2002
Celebrator-type, deep brown colour. Kind of syrupy and harsh. It could use some time in the cellar, but still not too bad. Alcoholic/hoppy aroma. Sweet and malty to start with molasses and then some bitter hops before a very warming finish. It definitely needs to mellow and blend a bit. Itís too harsh when young.
