demitriustown (1054) - Sterling Heights, Michigan, USA - JAN 26, 2014
12 oz bottle: Aroma has got a nice malt base, toffee, and a bright grassy hop note in the backing. Appearance is a clear dark amber to almost reddish hue with a medium off white head that lingers. Taste is quite nice with a nicely balanced maltiness, lightly spiced, rounding out with a nice hop backing. Palate is lightly sweet, medium to low carbonation and covers up the alcohol very well. Overall, Very well balanced beer. Cheers!

Grzesiek79 (3113) - Radom, POLAND - JAN 26, 2014
Takie sobie wiecej oczekiwalem swiatecznych alcentow, a tymczasem piwo jest karmelowo chmielne i bardzo alkoholowe. Wyczuwalne przezemnie nuty etanolu przy tym piwie byly niezbyt przyjemne. Jak na 7% to dosc ciekawa sytuacja bo tego sie nie spodziewalem, przy piwach oscylujacych blisko lub powyzej 10% nie wyczuwalem tego. Zabraklo tu gestosci aby moc mogla sie ukryc. Rubinowo brazowe piwo ze srednia piana i niezbyt trwala. Jako zimowe piwo nie polecam
