Bottle pours deep dark amber, almost brown, medium frothy off-white head, attractive lacing, with light carbonation.   Musty, malty, peppery nose.   Smooth hop bitterness up front, some licorice, with a malty backbone.   Some odd hemlock like tree flavor as well, or is it sagebrush?   Medium body and mouthfeel.   Light spices emerge on the finish.   Fairly smooth, not as hopped up as I would have thought.   Finishes herbish, slight hop, minor malt, semi-sweet.   Very different from most other Winter seasonals I have had.

I know I’ve had this before, although, like many seasonals, the recipe may be different this year. And it tasted better than my vague recollection of it. Spicey, nutmeg aroma. Dark red in color. Off-white head. Good lace. Good hop profile. Spicey character is very nice. Somewhat chalky. Very good and reasonably rich.

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 (2178) - 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!

badgerben (4649) - Blaine, Minnesota, USA - DEC 7, 2004
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.
