Very nice ale here. Pours what initially appears light brown but settles with an amber-copper essence; aroma is pleasantly malty with come bitter notes; well balanced ale which has more depth than expected, nice wintry brew.

penstemon (223) - Washington, USA - FEB 1, 2016
Pours dark mahogany with orangeish highlights and a light tan head. Aromas of dried plum, black cherry, dark bread, some spice, earthy, burnt sugars, and roasted malt. Taste is dried fruit, especially black cherry, bread, hint of blackberry, toffee, some roasted malt, and low-medium earthy bitterness. Soft, smooth, medium body. Nice. An awesome English style winter ale. Even after finishing a case I was not tired of it. Malty, fruity, nice bitterness, well balanced. Will probably buy at least a 6pack every winter from now on.

Black pour with a single finger, tan head. Aroma is slightly sweet with some toffee or a little candy. Sugary raisin. Medium bodied. A little roast & caramel make up most of the flavor. A little lace present.

Sweet flavour of roasted malt, toffee, dried fruit and light spice with a dry, bitter, hoppy, warming alcohol finish. Medium body with an oily texture and soft carbonation. Nice.

I wasn’t sold on this beer first time I tries it but it grows on you. Malty brew and just a bit more hop than I prefer.

theisti (3651) - Kansas, USA - JAN 8, 2016
12 oz bottle that was part of the World Market Winter Brews 9 pack, courtesy of my in-laws. Best by 05/15/16 2240 11 on label. The pour is clear brown copper ruby with a three inch foamy light tan head. The aroma is rich toffee malt, chocolate and a bit of nutmeg and chicory towards the back, particularly as the beer warmed. The taste is the big chocolate sweet malt up front, moves towards some nice earth and spice towards the back. Rich chocolate carries the lingering aftertaste. The palate is medium bodied, softer carbonation and the long chocolate aftertaste. Tasty one.

Pours dark cherry with light brown lacing that quickly dissipates. Aroma is earthy, licorice and citrus. Taste a fair amount of hops with a nice clean finish.
