A decent winter beer. Very malty and hoppy with a nice kind of sweet finish. Pours deep copper in cor with a light tan head. Had a draft pour at grafton. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Look: pours a dark Amber almost brown. Very clear. Light tan head. Smell: lots malt like a lager. Hops come through nicely. Pine. Citrus. Grapefruit. Taste: nice hop flavor. Orange and grapefruit. Like a smoked malt of some sort. Some spices coming out as it warms up. Feel: dry in the back end. Nice bitterness all the way through. Medium carbonation. Overall: not a traditional winter beer. But very refreshing. First drank: home 1/4/15 Vintage: 2014

cheap (4480) - Beaver Valley, Beaver County, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 3, 2015
On tap at mad mex. A little better than expected. Was thinking this would be some holiday spice brew but its spiced notes are fairly subdued. Nice candy aroma. Looks like lighter colored root beer. Barely any co2 on the palate if any at all. On the tongue, this beer at first comes across quite strong and medicinal, then it eases up a little as the session continues. Yes, some type of spice in there but its well balanced. Not over the top. A little difficult for me but better than most holiday style brews.

Nice copper malt sweetnes with fairly agressive hop forward finish. English hop are subdued but very present. Nice winter seasonal.

ALLOVATE (2549) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - JAN 1, 2015
At just on cool and into a snifter. Radiant, deepest ruby with fine, intermittent carbonation. Head rises up to a solid, two inch plume out the lip of the glass. Complex nose is dominated by sugary, stewed plums and rhubarb, top-soil, toffee brittle with hints of nutmeg, eucalypt gum, camphor and subtle mocha notes. Wow, this one is in overdrive on the palate. Meaty, chunky, biscuity malts with heavy woody and nutty notes. Malt is matched by tart, berry fruit and a weedy, herbaceous and grassy bitterness in back and melded finish that is oh so long. Carbonation is soft. Quite firm, overall dry and a little alcohol is evident. A mouthful of good ale.(12fl,Oz, BB 06/02/15, gift from family)

adster (506) - HUNGARY - DEC 31, 2014
Elegánsan pörkölt, éretlen gyümölcsös komlóaromái kellemes bevezetőként szolgálnak egy téli este nyugodt körülmények között történő eltöltéséhez, kiegyensúlyozott illatok ezek, melyek vélhetően egy szintén igen összeszedett ízélménnyel párosulnak. E tekintetben sem okoz csalódást az ital, mint azt később megelégedéssel nyugtázhatjuk: komolyabb hangvételű, pörkölt maláta vaskos alapjain felépülő közepes test egy intenzíven komlós, száraz utóízzel. Érett szerkezete valóban megállja a helyét a zordabb esték kísérőjeként, az ünnepi időszak levezetéséhez is kielégítő eszköznek bizonyult.

Oly (55) - Crawfordsville, Indiana, USA - DEC 30, 2014
The 2014 version isn’t my favorite. It starts so nicely; dark brown pour with really thick tightly laced and creamy head that lasts. The aroma has heavily roasted malt with dark fruit like figs or prunes. I just wish it was stronger. The palate is great; slick and heavy. But the taste is just unbalanced for me. The cereal/biscuit malts and spices overwhelm the other flavors.There is some toffee, which is nice, but all of those things crowd out the roasted malt that I want at the center of the beer. It also tastes boozier than the 6.7% it is.

From a bottle. Pours opaque tawny brown with a bubbly beige head and lots of lacing. Tastes like toasted malt, Earth, dried fruits, light alcohol. Light body and low carbonation. Smells nutty, malty, earthy, and light booze.

Bottle. Pours mostly clear reddish brown with creamy beige head. Aroma is toasted and cereal malts, light fig, light spices, and faint woody notes. Flavor is malty and smooth with some caramel and dark fruit sweetness along with light hops and a good spice blend. Medium body and carbonation.
