COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Brewed with our German ale yeast, lightly toasted malts and enhanced with a blend of winter spices this beer should do the trick. Malty, rich, and a touch spicy.

On tap at the brewery. Pours amber with a thin, quickly fading head. Aromas of caramel, toast. Initial flavor tangy, salty buoyed by a healthy carbonation. Aftertaste evolves nicely. This one’s for sipping by the fire.

TheHopster (1032) - Netcong, New Jersey, USA - FEB 27, 2016
(Bottle). Compliments of Mark. Slightly hazy, amber complexion with thin quickly dissipating head. Mild malty aroma. The flavor is German malts, lightly toasted with a peppery finish. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Ron (3472) - Rochester, New York, USA - FEB 27, 2016
Bottle. Clear amber pour. Small foamy head that did not last. No lce. Aroma is dominated by a lagerish cooked vegetable smell with spices like cinnamon and clove. Grainy lager flavors, kind of harsh, light spice.

radiomgb (2686) - Peterborough, Ontario, CANADA - FEB 21, 2016
355ml bottle. Clear copper in colour with a very thin white head, light lacing. The aroma is of sweet fruits, grains, some caramel malts, apples. The flavour is of light spice, dark fruits, some sweet malts. Sweet mouthfeel, medium body, medium carbonation. Finishes long, grainy and sweet. Its just okay really, a weak dubbel.

raymow (1370) - Bensalem, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 8, 2015
bottled - very nice reddish amber color. Pretty good slightly sweet flavor (but not over the top). Malt and slight spice finish.

FROTHINGSLOSH (6484) - GREENSBURG, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 5, 2015
Sampled from a 12 oz brown bottle this beer poured a hazy orange-caramel color with a huge fluffy orange-white head taht lingered and left decent lacing. The aroma was art and crisp fruit - raisin, cherry and pear. The flavor was sour caramel, tobacco, pear, a bit of fig, vague spices, yeast and an underlying bitterness. Medium length finish. Medium body. Ok.

berkshirejohn (5829) - Bracknell, Berkshire, ENGLAND - FEB 2, 2015
12oz bottle from Wegmans, West Seneca. A hazy copper colour with a trace of translucent head; malty dunkel-style aroma; lively malty taste with some light spices; giving a slight warmth at the end, but otherwise a very average beer.

jrodooo5 (1442) - DOVER, Delaware, USA - JAN 26, 2015
This is about as average as it gets all around. Decent copper pour w/ a head that leaves lacing. The aroma has some mild winter spices. The taste is pretty clean & balanced w/ not a lot standing out. Good mouthfeel & overall a simple & drinkable beer.

EithCubes (5461) - New Jersey, USA - JAN 21, 2015
Bottle. Nose is very malty, toasty Vienna character with a few darker touches, some toffee and lots of spice and earth. Touch buttery, some chocolate and peanut brittle-like caramel. Very inviting appetizer, sort of a small Doppelbock using hybrid yeast. Hazy amber-brown with fizz and a tan head. Taste very malty, spicy with floral and light berry notes. Again, toast, caramel, and earth, and all blending together nicely. The winter character of the spices is not in touch, a mild stroke of sort of juniper-spruce, but beyond there there’s some background flavor that would fit in very nicely in pumpkin season (gather up the usual suspects). No alcohol, full and very heavy body, and the aftertaste reminds of cola, which is about the only negative I have to offer. Interesting and worthy of a try (if only for a supremely malty holiday beer that doesn’t overspice).

alobar (3432) - Lansdale, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 27, 2014
Reddish orange pour with creamy off-white head. Aroma of caramel, toasted malt, and spice. Toasted malt flavor with caramel, nuts, and spice. Creamy body. Nice beer.
