Pours a dark garnet color as advertised. Aroma is slight hops, malts and all kinds of spice. Reminds me of a winter night by the fire. Taste is spices up front, some mild malts and hops with a nutmeg and chicory finish. Mouth feel is smooth with a bit or carbonation. The spices change as it warms in your mouth.

maekchu (2134) - Hirakata, JAPAN - FEB 27, 2014
Bottle from 99 Bottles (Federal Way, WA). Sweet malty and spicy nose. Deep reddish brown color. Rich roast malt, licorice, cinnamon, and maybe peppermint. Medium body. Tasty, but a bit weak-flavored stuff for a winter ale. The overall spice profile comes across as something artificial or chemical. Tastes more like a spiced doppelbock. A disappointment, really.

Draft at Sprengerís. Clear reddish brown with generous cap of off-white foam. Low cola and cookie spice aromas. Flavors are fronted by a sharp bitter with raisin, molasses, marmalade, and even licorice playing backup. Low pH and clean minerality make for a brief palate but for the longer resinous parts.

Davhgbrew (940) - Coconut Creek, Florida, USA - FEB 13, 2014
Big malt and caramel up front. Spices and thick and syrupy texture. Middle is moderately high lively carbonation. Brown sugar is there..bitterness kind of balances it out in the middle & finish. Not a big fan of this brew, but itís a nice bold flavored sweet and spicy winter brew so I have to give it credit.

EyeAmBaldman (229) - Illinois, USA - FEB 13, 2014
Pours a dark brown, almost red with a thick off white head. Aroma is fantastic. Notes of malt and sweet fruits. Can also smell the alcohol...but itís such a pleasant smell. Unfortunately the taste was not as good as the aroma. It kind of reminds me of Orkneyís Skullsplitter. Itís bitter on the back end like a strong english ale. Man, is this beer thick in the mouth. Such a nice mouthfeel, thick and creamy. Itís just maybe a tad bitter for me. Not a bad beer at all though.

Davros (1939) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - FEB 5, 2014
Pours dark copper with a quickly fading head. Nose shows liquorice, sour spices, confectionery, sweet malt and brown sugar. Roasty flavours with an astringent herbal hit too. Some confectionery-like sweetness and more liquorice. Carbonation is too high.
