UPDATED: FEB 2, 2006 2005 vintage, bottled. Very nice dark ruby red color with a medium frothy brownish head. Interesting aroma of raspberry and dried apricots. Flavors of burned toast instantly mob the tongue, followed by the slightly yeasty flavors of a fresh Christmas bread. Very pleasant, non-spectacular seasonal beer.

Dark carmel colored Ale. I expected this beer to be very bitter. But was pleasently surprised by the opposite. Carmel and some fruity taste, at 6.7% alcohol can taste it in the aftertaste. Good beer I enjoyed it and will enjoy it again next year.

2005 bottle picked up for me in Arizona. Deeper amber colored beer, light haze and a frothy beige head. A hearty blend of caramelly and toasty malts to go with some spice and and a decent hop punch on the end. Medium to full bodied with a bit of dryness. Very nice seasonal beer.

Bottle, from trade with acertain. 2650814L on label wasnít sure if this meant something. Ski chalet label. Ok nose, malty. Yeasty bready, caramel, lemon. minor fruity notes. Tad hazy reddish orange color, small head that faded quickly, no lacing. Sweet bitter flavors, grapefruit, caramel, apple. Medium body, lite, kinda watery, creamy mouthfeel, bitter fruity finish. Eh, this seemed off by what Iíve seen of others comments. Never would of guessed 6.7%.

(Bottle, 2005 vintage) Pours a deep mahogany body with a large beige head. Aroma of toasted malt, florals, and caramel. Flavor of toasted malt, toffee, and a hint of fruit (possibly cherry) with a bitter, metallic finish.

Had this one on tap at Clodís in Corvallis. I thought it was very thin and not very warming for a winter ale.

Bottle. Mahogony beer with a light beige head. Spicey aroma with some hops. Spicey flavor with some caramel and roasty malts and resiny/citrus hops. Nicely balanced - though some may put it a bit on the hoppy side.
