Bottle, poured dark amber with a large tan head, with good lacing, very nice, as it settled. Aroma is more fruity and hoppy than I expected. The first taste was an all bitter hops. As it washes over my palate, some balanced malts, then finished with a dry pine-grapefruit lingering after taste. This was quite nice. Thanks to Chris.

UPDATED: FEB 2, 2007 Milky amber ruby pour, with thin off-white head. Quickly diminished. Average lacing. Sweet floral, fruit and candy aromas jump from this beer. Pleasantly nutty, sweet, and tart. Reminiscent of a barleywine that has mellowed. Palate is warming and smacks a little bitter and terse. Not much chewiness. Bland toasted notes are little overwhelming.RERATE. Recently retasted from a bottle at Williamís Uptown in Minneapolis. A nice full body replete with nuttiness, warm cream, tawny fruits and great grain sweetness. Leaves with a crisp lemony bite, for a well rounded brew. A appreciated this much more the second time.

Pours very dark red amber color with a nice beige colored head. Aroma is piney with some sweet maltiness. Flavor is well balanced with some orange juicy hoppiness and some nice maltiness as well as a good bit of spices. Nice beer.

Just when you think youíre about to drink another middle of the road winter ale, one pops out of the blue and surprises the hell out of you! This beer pours a deep amberish red color with a thin white foamy head and a nice degree of lacing left on my glass. The aroma almost smells sticky with grass, pine, and heavy doses of malt and citrus. This smells warming...like thereís a malty alcohol presence there..perhaps brown sugar, but you know thereís not. The flavor is sticky and full flavored. Mild carbonation levels, sticky caramel malt mouthfeel. Brown sugar, cotton candy, and sticky citrus dominate the flavor with a bittering contrast in the finish. Twigs and pine cone finish. This was an excellent surprise of a beer..full flavored and warming.

Thanks to beer handy for this. Pours deep ruby with gargantuan off-white head with an insane amount of lace. Aroma of malt, big hops, spices including black pepper and nutmeg, and fruit. I could smell this all day. Tastes hoppy, with a solid malt backbone. Some fruit and spices appear at mid palate, giving way to a tart, pseudo krieky, merlotish finish. And the hops and spices hit you again on the way down...in a good way. As complex as a Steven Hawking speech, and as unique as his speech synthesizer device, this one is a standout. Full Sail kicks ass and takes names. This one reminds me a little of Alpha Klaus. Bring me another, Jeeves.

On tap at Redbones. Dark amber brown color, minimal head. Pine hoppy aroma, some malts. Flavor is initially bitter, hop syrup feel, medium body, with a balance of spice and sweetness. Drinkable, hoppy and refreshing, yet not overly complex.

On draught January 2005 at Redbones. Dark, near black pour, with some large bubbles and fizzy off-white head that disipates rapidly. Looks like a glass of coke. Aroma of dry toffee and caramel, licorice and light English hops. Begins flavorful and hoppy, but not in an extreme, American, bitter way. Notes of licorice root, caramel and light roast. Medium body, moderate carbonation. Good balance here, not too sweet or too bitter and the spiciness is not overdone. Some wateriness on the finish detracts a bit. Iím a big fan of Full sail after only having two of their beers thus far. Tough to categorize these Winter Warmers. Some are ales, some are old ales and some are English Strong Ales. I like íem all though. Iíd like to mull this one.
