Bottle - fair size fomay head, nice dark amber color, sweet malty aroma and flavor with with some raisiny Belgian notes - actually not too bad, especially from Blue Moon

I tried this at a friends request. By itself it was unimpressive, not bad, but nothing to stand out. My friend said he was served this with chocolate powder rimming the glass, like salt on a margherita. I tried it that way and it makes it quite interesting. I am a fan of chocolate stouts so this may play into it. This rating is based on the non-chocolate version.

A very bad example of a winter ale. Way too thin in mouthfeel with almost no taste of any kind. Color and aroma were nice but that was all, as this ale has no flavor. Very disappointed, as I really enjoy the pumpkin ale from Blue Moon.

An odd mystery brew. Spicey with prominent chocolate presence, some Belgian yeast and caramel. Don't really know what to say.. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Draft. Amber with faint tan head. Malty with notes of caramel and chocolate. Not getting any hops. Sweet.

This bottled brew from a bottle shop poured a medium sized head of foamy finely sized tan colored bubbles that were quickly diminishing and left behind a and a fair lacing. The mild aroma was brown malt and caramel malt. The bubbly crisp mouth feel was tingly at the start with a mellow finish. The mild flavor contained notes of brown malt and caramel. A decent one that I would consider buying again.

Copper pour with a tan head. The aroma was spicy with some sweetness to it. Flavor was brown sugar, some clove and carmal malt. Overall, a fair beer for coors.

vulcanmeister (171) - La Grande, Oregon, USA - DEC 17, 2012
This beer pours a dark amber liquid with a small head. the smell is dried fruits and brown sugar. The tast is malty, with some carmel and fruit in a medium-light body. The finish is a bit of sweetness swirled into toasty coffee and malt. Not long in the aftertaste but a very pleasant beer.
