After some of their other beers, this was a pleasant surprise. Clearly oily both in appearance and body. Lots of plum and cinnamon in the aroma, and then the flavor adds a few layers of raisin, nutmeg, perhaps a touch of ginger...all very winter and seasonal. Well supported. A little crass, but enjoyable enough. Bottle.

Skyview (5696) - Papoose Jct, Minnesota, USA - APR 5, 2013
Picked up a single 12-oz bottle at Pick ín Save in Marshfield, WI. Pours a semi-clear dark copper brown colored brew with a thick light beige head that has some nice retention and lacing. Aroma of roasted dark malt, some spicy clove, vanilla and a touch of cinnamon. Taste is medium bodied, soft carbonation with flavors of light raisin, cinnamon, cloves, a touch of mincemeat pie filling and floral hops. Finish is semi-sweet with a mild sweet hop and light raisin aftertaste. Nice holiday spice detected in the finish.

Ughsmash (7508) - Pewaukee, Wisconsin, USA - APR 4, 2013
Bottled. Poured deep garnet with a short, dense khaki head. The aroma picked up nutmeg, cloves, and cinnamon over sweet vanilla and caramel.. tangy, lightly-metallic notes on the back of the nose.. OK. The flavor found sweet vanilla, caramel, and a bit of molasses at the core, with a tacky blend of spices (nutmeg, cinnamon, cloves, and a little cardamom) around.. finished dry and a bit tangy. Lighter-bodied with a little too much reliance on spices on the palate.. overall quite drinkable, though.

UPDATED: DEC 31, 2012 OK, I donít have the specs or anything for this ale...just found it at the local Copps store. Itís exceptionally good--spicy (nutmeg & cinnamon?), chocolatey, medium-to-full-bodied, and very warming. I did a web search and canít find out much in the way of specifics for the brew. Iím not sure what style it is, but it packs a bit of a punch; thatís why I classed it as an American Strong Ale.
