Reminds me of Thanksgiving with roasted chestnuts and sled rides in upper Cleveland when Mom use to put vanilla in our warm milk (and whiskey in hers) while we would eat home-made chocolate chip cookie instead of dinner on snow days. The warming sensation is welcome on this unseasonably cold June evening. the choclate, vanilla ovetones with stong alcholo finish is a great treat and welcomed gift. Thank you.

AgedOak (98) - Ohio, USA - JUN 4, 2007
UPDATED: JUN 6, 2007 Medium dark brown pour with very malty (sweet) aroma. Light off white head that dissipates rather quickly. Flavor is of fruity malt, a slight taste of vanilla and caramel with light hops at the back end. A very good winter ale to share with a friend on a cold blustery winter eve.

cking (1175) - North Canton, Ohio, USA - JUN 1, 2007
Rated 1/12/07: 06 Edition Winter Ale - 6.0% ABV. This is a pretty standard ale nice to drink, but lacking in the bells and whistles department. Generously sweet malty scent some light pepper is there. Nice color but the off white head soon left and couldn’t be brought back. Medium fullness and easily drinkable, nice clean finish. Good tasting ale, sweet malts, slight and I do mean slight bitter hop presence. Nothing out of the ordinary, think I’ll stick to their imperial stout.

mlist55 (210) - media, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 23, 2007
Pours dark brown/amber with a minimal off-white head. Aroma is malty and semi-sweet. Flavor is also lightly sweet, malty, and a little fruity. Palate is light/medium with dark semi-sweet and bitter fruit on the finish.

Gorbalev (2927) - Ontario, CANADA - MAY 17, 2007
Bottle, courtesy of Hogtown Harry. Best Before April 07, so I’ll safely assume I have a 2006 bottle. Looks great in the glass - Deep chestnut brown, frothy white head. Aroma of caramel and burnt malts. Very pleasing thick foamy mouthfeel. Taste is really nice and malty with quite a bitter finish - the bitterness takes a second and sneaks up on you, but man, it lingers. Lots of burnt, but not smoke, notes in here as well, with just a touch of alcohol in the finish. A really nice Scottish/Scotch style ale and another winner from Brooklyn.

Bottle. Brown pour with a light tan head. Aromas of caramel malt and light smoke. Flavors of light candied fruit, smoke, and sweet malt. Decent body, a nice mellow smokey-malt character throughout.

BeerandBlues2 (9766) - Hanover, Maryland, USA - APR 25, 2007
Bottle purchased at Vulcan Beverages, Birmingham, AL. Pours sparkling dark brown with an average creamy light brown head, mostly lasting, good lacing. Aroma is heavy malt (caramel, cookie), light hops (herbs), average yeast (dough, leather) with notes of butterscotch, honey and apple. Medium bodied, creamy texture, average carbonation and a creamy finish. Moderate sweetness, light acidity and bitterness; sweet roasted caramel malt flavor.

(Bottle) Pours clear deep red. Mild roasted and some dark bread maltiness in the aroma with tiny notes of some funky fruits. Only a touch of spicy. Some dark syrup also notable. Malty flavour with a light sour sting that is almost a bit berry like. Also some notes of spicy hops, dark bread and a light roastiness. Finish is more sour-ish dry than bitter dry. Medium body.
