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.

beerbill (3324) - Laurel, New York, USA - APR 16, 2014
Growler. Pours a lightly hazed amber with a very thin linen white head that is gone after the first sip and leaves no lace. Pleasant aroma of malt with a touch of sweetness. No spice detected. The flavor is malt, caramel, and bread that has been lightly toasted. Again, no evidence of spice. Well rounded mouthfeel. Very mild bitterness at the finish. Medium bodied.

Bottle on the first day of winter. Pours a clear copper with a medium to large sized white head. Malt and a touch of spice on the nose. Medium bodied, a bit of sweetness, malt, a touch of spice. Warming into the finish, smooth and malty. Very easy drinking.

drowland (5980) - Valdosta, Georgia, USA - JAN 6, 2014
1/6/14. Noles need to get it together right now. 12oz bottle thanks to JBVatkeens. Almost clear amber pour with a small khaki head that fades to a ring. Mild aroma, malty, light bready and biscuit notes, subtle spice. Light, but nice. I hate spice bombs. Malty flavor, toasted caramel, bread, biscuit, subtle spice, lingers a touch. Mild, but not bad at all.

TwoSipDip (8894) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - MAY 14, 2013
Bottle @ home via trade with pineypower. Thanks so much! Pours a dark rust orange appearance with a foamy, cream colored head. Very spicy, pear/apple, chewy, toasty malty aroma. A bit thin. Cinnamon, apple, toasted malty, light caramel, a bit smoky, light citrusy flavor. Not my favorite but a cool beer.

pineypower (2479) - Pine Barrens, New Jersey, USA - APR 28, 2013
Bottle. Pours an attractive amber color with a moderate off white head. Aroma is of gingerbread, cinnamon, caramel, toffee, light dried fruit. Taste is much the same, decent balance of spices, brown sugar, cinnamon, spice cookie, toffee and some light bitterness in there also.

dmac (3896) - Toms River, New Jersey, USA - APR 4, 2013
12oz bottle via 6pack from the brewery during the Rosso release. Poured a clear deep orange/amber with an average sized foamy super light beige head. Aroma is spicy and nutty at first, brown bread, cinnamon and chocolate. Thinner bodied with average carbonation and a watery mouthfeel. Flavor of light winter spice, cinnamon, nutmeg, medium toast, light touch of nuts. Solid enough to drink a few during the Christmas season while hanging out with family and friends (assuming you have either).

Slipstream (1976) - USA - JUN 15, 2013
Attractive label with some traditional touches. Very dark amber pour. The aroma is fairly flat to start, with some pineapple muffin and yeast. The flavor is mellow and sweet - dark bread with light spices, maybe some coriander, ginger, or pepper. The aroma and flavor open up as it breathes. Not the best dubbel, but a good brew.
