illidurit (2130) - Petaluma, California, USA - DEC 20, 2013
12 ounce bottle into pint glass. Deep brownish copper pour, clear with a fluffy khaki head. Aroma is dark wheaty bread crusts, slight milk chocolate, minerals, and toasted grains. Pleasant flavor of dry chocolate, fresh multigrain bread and a hint of smoke. Unexciting but functional beer.

Nice. Reminds me of a Christmas ale but without the spice. Solid malt bill with added hops. Solid B. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

12 oz bottle and the label says, "available for 90 days only." Says enjoy by 2/28/2014. So...how is this beer already oxidized? Aroma is cardboard, nail polish remover, and some weird cooked vegetable character. Flavor isnít too bad considering. Still drinkable, but really would have liked to try this fresher.

Brentv (327) - Portland, Oregon, USA - NOV 30, 2013
From the bottle, pours brownish copper with beige head. Aroma and flavor have a little bit of citrus and caramel, neither sweet nor bitter. Not much else. Simple beer. Good carbonation.

DavidWoodruff (390) - Windsor, California, USA - NOV 25, 2013
Brown with a tan head. Roasted grain and caramel aroma. Malty-nutty flavor with plenty of hop bitterness. It is like an imperial american brown ale. Festive but not very complex. A bit more residual sweetness would make this much more interesting.
