20 oz. bottle. Big hop nose that faded over time. As it warmed up developed unique citrusy character (orange/grapefruit) in the finish.

Bottle. Poured deep amber with thick white head. Aroma of bread, malt and toast. Malty with big hoppy taste and finish. Not heavy like many winter ales.

UPDATED: JAN 30, 2007 Smells of bread, roasty, cereal, scents. Thick and hazy golden-amber colour. Flavor is initially dominated with mass quantities of hops. There is some medium-heavy floral malt essence with a touch of winter spice and blended well into the smooth body but kind of drowned out by the hops, which is okay. Slightly sweet and tangy as well Very interesting overall for a winter seasonal - and very unexpected.

on tap at brewery. amber color. fruity nose, very hopped with multiple waves of multiple hop flavors. a delightful winter beer - refreshing and hearty at the same time.

Nicely hopped winter ale with a somewhat bitter finish. Balanced with a sweet maltiness. One of the top 4 winter beers among 20 sampled last night.

Perkeo (322) - Portland, Oregon, USA - NOV 15, 2006
Relatively pale to medium amber brew with some foam and lace, nice piney aroma with that great bittersweet balance that Centennial hops provide. Clean pretty much, but obfuscated in the middle somewhere is a touch of "rancio", like someone thru a balled up hunk of sourdough and/or a big ol’ porcini mushroom in the fermenter or somethin’... some sort of English yeast I’m guessing. I like it, it’s got character.

22 oz. bomber. Pours a clear brilliant amber with a dense, lasting head. Lemon/hop nose is fairly strong. First taste packs a hop bite with a sweetish piney character. Finish trails off into slow, sweet, warming glow with just a tang of hops left behind. I liked this year’s batch over the last couple.

On tap a the Dog and Pony in Renton. This is not your standard winter warmer that is largely defined by the malt. The alcohol level is up in the right range but the hops are saying this beer has wandered into IPA territory. All in all, a surprising but very good beer.

Draft at the Dog and Pony. Wow, this is amazing stuff. Not really an American Strone, more of an IIPA in malty clothing. Pours a clear, golden brown with a thin white head. Plenty of crisp herbal & noble hops on the nose. Fairly thick and chewable body but nothing exceptional for a winter beer. Big hoppy flavors predominate in the palate and especially in the finish. This is another great effort from Elysian, if slightly mislabelled. Sometimes, though, it’s nice to be a little surprised.

22oz Bottle Pours out a gold topped with a very nice off white head. Aroma is nothing great, but the tast is very good. Thanks Indiana_Red for this.
