One of my earliest craft beers and I still remember how good it tasted. I would love to find another ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Nice strong ale, good to keep you warm in the winter. Slightly bitter malty drink, with good name.

Decent ale, nose smelled strongly of celery salt. Good balance of malt and bitterness with a nice warming effect.

luiss (89) - Elmsford, New York, USA - JAN 29, 2007
Pours out a ruby red color. Nice frothy head that tan in color. Smell is of dry wood and mild flower aroma. Highly carbonated and the taste is a bit hard to feel out. Def fizzy and spicy.

HumbertHumbert (77) - Denver, Colorado, USA - FEB 22, 2006
Subdued aroma for the style. Mostly caramel, some dried fruit. Good rubyish dark color with not much head to speak of. Nondescript mouthfeel, sweetish flavor, aroma and flavor very similar - no surprises. Bready malts with no layers of complexity.

Thick tasting. Has a nasty aftertaste.

Redpointed (69) - Colorado, USA - DEC 19, 2010
Bottle, Aroma is malty, but not too strongly. Nice head and color. Taste is strongly malty with some spice coming through at the end with a hint of the alcohol. Pleasant and wintry. Overall a good ale.

beeriodic (61) - Longmont, Colorado, USA - DEC 9, 2003
Generous head, with large-ish white bubbles that laces down nicely. Found no dregs in this "bottle conditioned" ale. Deep amber color. Malt notes in the aroma. Nice, smooth palate, with a sweetish tendency, but the bitterness in the aftertaste balances this OK. A bit too bubbly maybe. Not bad.

If I could just smell this beer, it would be fine, but sadly, the taste is less rewarding. If I could prolong the brief initial instant of flavor of earthy hops, and mixes of deep malts, I would, but as amceachern said, the aftertaste is fowl.
