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.

More ho-hum than ho-ho-ho, this oneís got enough malt to fit the program, but is not too distinctive otherwise. Goes easier on the spices than some warmers do, so that may appeal to some.

Pours dark brown with tan head, that remains for most of the beer, good lace. Lots of caramel malt flavor, with a little sourness that seems out of place. without the sourness it would be much better.

Another excellent addition to the Bridgeport lineup of distinct and very enjoyable ales. Recently snatched a sixer of these and numerous other goodies out for friends and familar during New Yearís last night and everyone commented highly on Ebenezer, even those who generally donít drink craft styled brews.
This rich and extremely full bodied ale pours very well and delivers a very nice woft of sweet malty aroma. Gives off a decent sized, long lasting head with good lacing.
A rich and sweet tasting ale that delivers hints of toffee, caramel, and a hint of spiciness. I enjoyed this both as an afternoon warming drink as well as an after dinner teaser to go along with some left over Xmas cake. A double duty brew thatís worth taking a closer look at when the opportunity arises.

Sweet and Fruity is definatly a great way to describe this ale. It smells like peaches, and the taste continues the peachy trend. This is one of my first ales from Bridgeport and I was fairly impressed. Nothing too exciting, but itís definatly a great beer to sit around a fire and relax with! What a pleasure!

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
UPDATED: JAN 26, 2009 Light reddish-brown with a very thin head. Faint aroma of hops, alcohol. Medium body, full mouthfeel. Mild flavor of hops, spice, sour. Unusual and not entirely pleasant. Weird aftertaste. The bottle I had two years ago was much better.

Thanks to a trade from pinkzambia. Nice deep red color with no head to speak of. One hell on a nice little unassuming beer. Sweet hard candy small with some toasty aromas. Some cinnamon tp. The taste is equally as pleasant. No hint of bitterness. Present and short aftertaste. Nothing to complex going on here, but sometime you want that.

Bottle. Poured a deep amber to red color. Pine woods aroma with small head. Taste of sweet malts laced with vanilla that finish nicely dry with just a hint of cinnamon. Pretty nice winter brew and a very good buy for the buck.
