nice amber pour with a bubbled thin grey head. aroma is brisket, with a lot of salt. sour taste is not good. also a salty egg flavor. no bueno. some mesquite in the finish which is good in a steak, but bad in a beer. ugh.

Bottle. Hoppy sweet nose. Seaweed. Sharp hoppy, woody, acidic taste, in a nice way. Floral hops. Interesting.

Aromas of sweet malts and some wood. Mahogany body color with decent tan head that settled with a thin layer on top of beer. Flavor had that sweet malt presance till half way and the hops kicked in. Last half of beer was a warn alcohol flavor. Not bad on palate but for someone starting rating beers this maybe harsh on the palate for them.

UPDATED: AUG 26, 2007 A friend brought this beer back for me from a trip out west - Thanks Pigboy! I am totally unfamiliar with this brewer. Sampled from a 12 oz brown bottle this beer pours a dark mahogany color with a medium sized tan head. There is a strong fruity hop aroma with a light vague spiciness underneath. The flavor is rich and malty and has a strong floral hop character but there is a strong alcohol burn that really detracts from the overall beer experience. Had that alcohol burn not been so prominent I would certainly have rated this beer higher.

bottle from either darkelf or foolish_mortal....wish i could remember who! anyway, this is a beautiful winter brew (despite drinking it in summer) with a dominant cinnamon and ginger flavor instead of typical malt and hops. this type of beer is designed for sitting in front of a campfire after a long day of skiing, rather than a beer to chug with your drinkin buddies. good stuff, definitely one iíd like to try again.

Bottle. Deep amber in colour with a slightly off white lasting head. The aroma was of rich caramel malts, slightly toasted, earthy with some light citrus hops. The flavour was malty (toasty, earthy, some dirt), hops (oranges, some lemon) and some spice. Full body, medium carbonation. Finishes with a medium bitterness, lingering and dry. Thanks for the beer DarkElf.

12 oz. bottle. Pours almost a rust color with a medium off white head. Sweet and spicy aroma. Definite hops flavor along with spice and malt. A bit of alcohol warmth too. Very enjoyable.

A nice surprise. Aroma is intensely hoppy with malty elements of strawberry and clover honey. Flavor is sweet and malty with an excellent hop balance. Elements of raisin and rhubarb are noticeable. Very full bodied beer with a sleek, very hopped finish. One of my favorite winters!

pours deep mahogany, with a thin head, sweet aroma of plums and rasins which carry through in the flavor, rasiny with a balnced bitterness, a very drinkable x-mas ale
