(draft) A mild aroma and flavor. There was a hint of spice at the finish. Quite interesting. I liked it. A Winter Ale that’s almost low enough in alcohol to be a session beer.

crizay (1050) - Brook Park, Ohio, USA - JAN 26, 2006
Deep dark mahogany color, small beige head. Very dark fruity tasting, and sweet along with an alcohol kick. I liked this a lot, more like a quadrupel.

Really, really nice! The store ran out of this stuff way too fast, too. It reminds me a bit of Robert the Bruce, maybe not quite as full bodied or full flavored. Body is a dark ruby-brown, aroma is sweet and caramel-malty, with just a touch of hops keeping it all in balance. Very enjoyable.

A strong aroma of caramel malt greets the nose. The beer pours a reddish brown with a tan head. There is a strong caramel malt flavor that dominates throughout.

ATOmemphis (200) - Franklin, Tennessee, USA - JAN 20, 2006
Sweet smell. Dark tan, lightly ruby around the edges of the glass. Creamy head that dissipated. Lots of malt in the nose and its apparent in the taste. Light hops in the finish. It gives it a reasonable amount of bitterness. Very subtle for a winter warmer.

SoLan (1550) - Florida, USA - JAN 14, 2006
Dark brown. Small, tan head with a short life span. Aroma of rich malt, lactose, and subtle spices. Flavor is roasty malt, moderate hops, lactose, spices. Scotch and vanilla towards the finish. Cross scotch ale/baltic porter/winter brew. Rich, smooth body. Very easy to drink. Very good. I’d like more alcohol presence in a winter brew.

SpudClampDawg (1029) - Jasper, Indiana, USA - JAN 13, 2006
Brown/cherry pour. Sweet fruits in the nose (cherry mostly) with an underlying nuttiness. More fruit tartness in the body is balanced with caramel sweetness that lasts into the finish. Interesting take on a Xmas brew - mellow but good.

Head was a bit too fleetingbut aroma is nice. Smooth and creamy but could use more alcohol to offset maltyness.

raymow (1011) - Bensalem, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 10, 2006
I see this as more of a typical winter brew than an English Strong Ale - but then again, what the hell do I know? Good enough flavor and aroma, but not the best in this category. Nice dark red color, though.

BeerHawk (1810) - Huntsville, Alabama, USA - DEC 27, 2005
Bottle. Dark brown color in the glass with a tan, soda-like head that fizzed off quickly. Smell of fruits and nuts present. The flavor had caramel, fruit, a hint of chocolate, and a sweet malt aftertaste. Medium bodied.
