Poured from the bottle, not impressed at all. Aroma is plain, and flavor seems to malty. There are much better holiday beers

Definitely tastes like Winter. At 6.4% abv it earns the "Strong Ale" classifier.

Not a huge fan. Malty and toasted but fell flat on the palate. Felt like was missing pine but am getting over a cold

Started off ok, but second impression was not good. There just isnít much of interest happening with this beer. It is predominately malt flavor, with only the slightest complexities. Not worth coming back to. So far this brewer is not impressing me.

2.5 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Beautiful amber pour with small white head, looks awesome. Malty aroma. Taste is malty with a slight hint of caramel and a bitter finish. Carbonation on this was where the beer fell apart as it seemed fizzy and with a wierd metallic taste and the bitter finish all fighting against each other made this beer a little hard to finish.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Clear, dark reddish amber, with a big, frothy, thickly lacing, beige head. Aroma of toast, syrup, nuts and earth. The taste is malty and slightly bitter, with a detergent and chemical flavor. Medium bodied and soapy feeling. Aroma and appearance good/taste and palate not so good. Still, itís probably better than the median beer in the world.

The best thing about this beer is the appearance. It all goes downhill after that. Nose is musty and yeasty and doughy. As for taste, Iíve had better out of my medicine chest. Palate bad. Finish bad. Bad, bad, bad. Poured it down my sink and cleaned my mouth out with an IPA.

Itís because of those bison fingers. - . I do not have bison fingers! .. .
bought in a BYO sixer at the shitty Royal Liquors in Kansas City, and the glue sniffer cashier gave me a 50% discount, well, not on purpose, he was to stoned to notice that i had six clearly different bottles in one of there offered holders..
oh well, when over 85% of your beer stock is dusty and/or has black sediment in it, you deserved it buttheads.. .. .
..Pours a dark tawny brown, decent low head, some lacing .. . some light maple, very light brandy, a touch of heavy grandma cookie, light raisin, and a bit of brandy soaked 50 year old wood .. . not much of a disguise .. . fairly simple, the 6.4 seems to work quite well .. .
snortski .. . .. . not exactly thin, but an ok mouth .. . for being at least 8 months, maybe even double its pretty good.. . not a xmas beer or even a mild winter warmer, you know, if this was there fall beer- it might work a bit better, but that being said, a pretty nice little brewski but it lacks any depth .. .
So all I gotta do is, Iíll ask them some big shot, like math or science, history-type college question and that will totally stump them by knowing a lot more about the answer than they do.
.-...In that movie, Matt Damon played a genius janitor, youíre just a janitor.
.-...Right, you stumped me with that one.

Bottle at PapsÝ. Pours hazy amber with a medium creamy off white head. The aroma is malt, sweet fruit and light citric earthy hops. The flavour is sweet malty, caramel and light hops.
