skaughty (652) - Marietta, Georgia, USA - MAR 9, 2005
Old "Winter" bottle. Poured with the appearance of apple cider - even with the "floaties" that could be construed as cinnamon. The flavor was sweet, buttery, uneven, but lively and held much more body than expected. A little pepper in the finish is a nice touch.

sayravai (4677) - Helsinki, FINLAND - FEB 21, 2005
UPDATED: FEB 26, 2005 (Bottled, 0.75l) Clear, very red color without yeast - almost opaque brown with it. Quite large, tight and foamy, lacy head. Very yeasty, somewhat port-wineous and salty aroma with some sourness. Toffeeish-roasted-malty, yeasty flavor with herbs and faint sourness. Medium-bodied, dryish and low-carbonated palate. A delicious, roasty and slightly sour, very well-balanced brew.

rauchbier (3645) - Isle Of Beer, Lincolnshire, ENGLAND - FEB 9, 2005
Bottle conditioned, at Essen Kerstbierfestival 2004. Deep chestnut with a faint haze, thin off white head and gentle condition. Spicy nose with some trace funky sub-lambic notes. Tangy fruit, malt and slight spiciness in the mouth though some funkiness still remains. Dry and spicy bitterness in the finish with some lingering nuttiness.

dwyerpg (4755) - Las Vegas, Nevada, USA - FEB 7, 2005
Apply aroma, very full slow-dissolving head. Nutmeg is pretty strong in this. Hoppy initial taste, but smooth finish.

szkot (100) - Minnesota, USA - JAN 30, 2005
Pours a orangish amber. Smells of orange and straw. Taste is citrusy, and (surprise) orange-like. Taste is comparable to a dry cider. Overall, pretty good.

Fruity with a hint of chocolate in the nose.Interesting orange brown color. Starts kinda sweet and quickly becomes a little sour and bitter on the finish.

Hazy amber hue, with a light-long foamy head, shy aromas of yeast, malted caramel, spices, follow a medium-bodied palate with a spicy, fruity, malty-caramel flavors through a winey hint and a small bitterness finish
