12oz - Nice smell that reflects the taste. Apprearance is cola looking with a red tint. Tasty and drinkable is mass quatities with a smooth malt/hop combo that makes me happy. Taste lingers and demands you drink more. A good winter brew to warm you up on chilly evenings.

piscator34 (1960) - Winnipeg, Manitoba, CANADA - DEC 8, 2004
UPDATED: FEB 1, 2005 Deep dark red in colour. Stunning aromas of lemongrass, ginger, and nutmeg. More lemongrass in the flavor, along with heather, hops, and some grainy malts. I tend to expect seasonals like this to be syrupy and thick, but this one was a nice change of pace. Unique!

Mahogany color with a medium head. Very bready aroma with some ginger along too. Malty taste with alcohol playing second fiddle. Not too much else though; a little on the plain side.

Light brown beer with a thick tan head. Malty aroma, minty and herbal. Some spruce aroma and cherry fruitiness. Flavour is very nice, malty sweetness, caramel, orange peel, and spicy hop flavour. Moderately bitter finish. Nicely warming.

hellomynameis (874) - Mayer, Minnesota, USA - DEC 5, 2004
Wonderful aroma. I detected chocolate and some citrus hops. Brown colour with average head. More hops in the flavour, but some fruit at the begining. The palate was lacking, but it was prertty good overall.

2004 bottle, thanks to snowtiger. Pours out a nice brown color with slight reddish tones. Little white head. It has a nice balanced aroma of malt and hop, slightly more hop though. The taste is quite complex ranging from malts to a slight fruity chocolate flavor with a hoppy finish, also could get a faint taste of nuts. A good solid brew
