porterhouse (1581) - Boothbay, Maine, USA - FEB 9, 2012
(Bottle from Bootleggers) Pours dark amber-brown with a finger of tan head. Aroma features spice (cinnamon, nutmeg, other?) and malt (chocolate). Mouthfeel fairly smooth, a touch thin, with some slight pebbliness. Big, weepy rings of lacing. Flavor of cinnamon-nutmeg spiciness over chocolate and light caramel with a bit of booziness.

A good local beer. A bit to hoppy for my taste but still enjoyable for a seasonal beer.

SuIIy (1983) - Burlington, Vermont, USA - JAN 5, 2012
Bottle. Pours a dark ruby/brown color with a small beige head. Nose is spices..gingerbread, nutmeg, brown sugar. Palate is very stingy with a dirty feeling in the swallow. Tongue is uncomfortable and coated with some sort of film. Flavors of dirty malts, tree bark, ginger, earthy I guess.

Crispy malt aroma. Dark brown with ruby tinge. Bitter tingly feeling on the tongue. It’s ok but doesn’t thrill me. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

beerfest5 (1141) - Dublin, IRELAND - DEC 3, 2011
Was really hoping this wouldnt be a winter seasonal like Cisco’s "Santas Beered", cause that tasted like cough syrup. This had the aroma of east coast hop variety ESB, color is ruby red to maroon. Obvious roasted malts with a nice hop kick in the back, a little spice to make it interesting.
