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

ALLOVATE (2618) - 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)

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.

sonnycheeba (4232) - 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

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.

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.
