3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Undated 12 oz bottle served in a Trois Pistoles snifter.
A: The beer is a deep reddish brown color with some fine looking carbonation bubbles, all covered by a good sized off-white head. The head reduces to a lasting partial coat and ring, and plenty of lacing is left on the glass.
S: The aroma features sweet malts, with a good bit of caramel, and traces of hops and light floral and smoke notes.
T: The taste is a step towards an imperial amber, with flavors of darker roasted malts than usual, Some coffee and smoke in the finish and aftertaste.
M: Crisp and smooth, medium body, medium carbonation, slightly dry finish.
O: Light in body and ABV for a winter seasonal, with the alcohol very well hidden, it is darker and richer than average for an amber ale.

Very drinkable ale....pours dark amber with a decent beige head, that sticks around for a while. Nothing bitter or bold...not sure I would say that it was robust, nor would chase a way a cool winter night....not a bad brew though...

Wonderful looking brew. Good pour with a dark amber color, white head, and good lacing. Not really my style when it comes to taste and aroma becuase I’m a hop guy. Good beer.

A fair beer, amber color, spicy hop nose and flavors, somewhat cookieish malts, well balanced and drinkable. Nothing stands out here, doesn’t shout, just drinks.

Bottle. Pours a clear amber with medium bubbly tan head. Smell is clean caramel malts, light hop presence, slight mineral. Taste is crisp malts, fruity, caramel, light hops. Pretty nice amber

2.5 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
12 oz. bottle. Dark copper with a small, beige head. The aroma is caramel, cola, and a pilsener hop profile. Bitter up front, a little sour, and some mild sweetness in the finish. Medium body, watery, and fairly smooth. Overall, this is a mediocre beer, with conflicting flavors, and weak aroma. Not bad ... just nothing much here.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Amber color with a thin white head. Aroma has hints of toasted malt and chocolate. Flavor is light chocolate malt with some mild toasted oats. Slight metallic aftertaste, finish is a little on the watery side. Still, not a bad session beer.
