adster (475) - 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 (50) - 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.

snoworsummer (2728) - baltimore, Maryland, USA - DEC 29, 2014
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.

sonnycheeba (3939) - Federal Hill, Baltimore, Maryland, USA - DEC 29, 2014
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.

ClutchMasterson (64) - Aiea, Hawaii, USA - DEC 21, 2014
Pours a deep dark brown with good carbonation and a 1 finger brownish head. Has a nice deep toasty cereal and bready aroma, with hints of of molasses. Taste starts with that same warm maltiness with the tones of toasty and bready flavor with hints of biscuit throughout. Finishes with a crisp but not overbearing bitterness that warms the palate. Mouthfeel is a wet and moist feeling with no dryness. Overall this is a great winter ale and one I would go back to again and again

Schwarzbart (68) - Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 21, 2014
A nice red-brown garnet color with soapy lace. Smells of caramel malt, brown sugar, light spices and fruit. Medium body and course with mild spiced flavors like chicory, caramel malt, kilned grains, fruit, earthy and leafy hops. A nice winter celebration ale. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

The least interesting beer I’ve had from Deschutes since the brewery entered the Wisconsin market this year. Everything is just sorta average. Scent has a bit of fruit, maybe cherries?, the body is light, and the finish has a bit of bitterness. Other than that, with apologies to Gertrude Stein, there’s not a lot of there there.

BeerFunGuy (793) - California, USA - DEC 15, 2014
This dark reddish brown beer has a slightly sweet aroma like fruit cake. It has a smokey but still slightly sweet undertone. A very good holiday option.

AgentAle (891) - Alberta, CANADA - DEC 15, 2014
Aroma is citrus, orange, clove and sweet malts. Taste is a light sweet graininess matched with a fresh bitterness. Well balanced overall. Body is a cloudy orange/gold with a thin pearl head that retains fairly well.

furthur (306) - Eagle River, Alaska, USA - DEC 13, 2014
Bottle, deep brown Amber, foam leaves quick. Aroma is malty with dark fruit. Flavor is roasty, then lightly malty, with a hint of cinnamon and citrus rind. Palate is light, smooth, carbonation adequate. Finish is sweet. Overall excellent!
