3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
355ml bottle from Brewdog Online Shop. Pours clear golden amber, small white head. Aromas of orange and caramel. Taste has more of the same, quite a bitterness to it. As another reviewer says, more of a strong pale ale or IPA than a winter beer. Not bad though.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
(Bottle). Pours a orange light amber complexion. Nicely unfiltered and filled with orange particulate. The flavor is well balanced with malt, hops and orange zest with understated alcohol. A perfect winter selection. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

3.4 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle. Pours hazy amber with frothy white head. Very slight flora aroma, but not much of a scent. Taste of earthy hops and citrus. There were no spices typically associated with winter ales. Very mild aftertaste to offset the hops. A decent beer.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Draught. Pours a cloudy dark amber color with a moderate off white head on it. Nose is a little hoppy, with only some slight floral notes coming off it. Taste is a little sweet with some slight caramel bits in there that offset the hoppy bitterness well. Not spiced heavily like too many winter ales are. Pretty good.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Sticky with hops. Typical piney and citrusy flavors, with a little peach for complexity. Full mouthfeel and fairly sweet. Long bitter finish.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Growler to a mug and then a pint glass; pretty much the same appearance between the two which is a cloudy golden orange colored body with a one and a half finger foamy white head that dies within a minute and leaves some nice somewhat spider web/sporadic lacing that clings in a very nice way; the aroma has spiced apples up front with some earthy grapefruit/orange peel/lemon-ness going on to combine with some caramel malts in the background; the taste is sweet yet kinda earthy/musty flavors the mouth through the spiced apples and the secondary flavorings of the aroma, gets a bit resinous in the mouth, some cherry and peach starts to come out a bit as it warms, light honey comes out as well; sticky sweet apple/peach/cherry aftertaste; it has a kind of watery finish; for the most part is kinda easy on the palate but there is a degree of harshness entering in like an AIPA, no worries, still good; overall, wow, good to see another winter warmer that is pretty good in the PNW

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Pours a cloudy orange aroma of sweet light malt. Tastes lightly sweet up front followed by a heavier than normal bitterness and a large ABV finish. Smooth and thick.
