GABF 05. The lady who served this to me was a hottie. Meeeeooooow! Pours brown with little head and an aroma of spicy malt. A nice malt flavor with a sour finish. Coating palate. Nice brew from a nice brewery.

Dark brown in color and cloudy with an average size head. Hop aromas with slight caramel hints. Hop flavors dominate. Not the best as a winter warmer.

Great bottle. It makes the beer look enticing. The taste, however, is fairly basic for this style. Light, but nothing beyond the ordinary.

Blood red with an alcoholic nose. Crisp -- maybe over-carbonated -- mouthfeel with a chewy, cherry-bitterness in the finish. Slightly bitter and spicy; malts arenít very pronounced. Needs more...

12oz bottle. Pours a clear, mahogany colored body with a thin, tan head that dissipates quickly and leaves a moderate lacing. Aroma is nutty with toffee malts and spiced rum. Some brown sugar and a light cocoa. A bit of an earthy, berry fruit too. Flavor is along the same lines, but a little richer. Nutty toffees up front before some earthy fruits, spiced rum flavors come in. A berry sweetness, some brown sugar, and woody flavors come in before this finishes with a light earthy bitterness and a lingering spiced sweetness. Moderate length aftertaste, clean finish, and medium bodied with a light carbonation. Overall, a solid winter ale. Sweet and lightly spiced with a nice earthiness. Well balanced and quaffable. Not bad.

Amber color with a lasting off-white head out of the bottle. Full mouthfeel. Brown sugar sweetness with a faint cinnimon spice and noticable alcohol. Tastey winter seasonal.
