frylock (1135) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - OCT 15, 2004
Dark mahogney color with a medium sized off-white head. Malty, lightly toasted aroma with hints of plum and some fruity hops. Very light sweetness, faint toffee notes, a hint of spruce. Light fruit in the finish, acompanied by a nice round hoppy flavor and biterness.

Pigfoot (2268) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - SEP 5, 2004
Fine, sturdy, off-white head, dark brown color. Sweet aroma, but nothing too distinctive coming through. Faint hints of toffee, nuts, spices. Mild hoppiness, medium carbonation. Sweet maltiness. Very mild, very mellow, but to a fault. I like my winter ales with more of a kick, and this slides down too smooth for my tastes. Feels as if they were shooting for something like Anchorís Our Special Ale, but something held them back.

obisbeer (565) - Barcelona, SPAIN - JUL 6, 2004
Dark brown w/minimul bubbles. Molasses chocolate, cherry and some spice on the nose. Roasted malt, charcoal, bright acidity, witha rich but light hoppy finish. Some coffee flavors though not overly sweet...

duff (5484) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - JUN 18, 2004
Bottle. Well made. Slightly creamy mouthfeel, with raisin, spicy fruit. Cakey sort of malts, with a touch of brandy, this is really nice, nice wintery taste.

beerinmarch (2830) - Washington, USA - JUN 13, 2004
UPDATED: FEB 5, 2009 Great brew all around. Dark red in color with a nice sweet fruity hop aroma. Soft roasty flavor, sweet and malty, caramel and lingering dark fruit at the start and finishes with a nice balanced bitterness. This brew has a nice spiciness to it, gives you a little warmth on those cold winter nights. One of the best of the Full Sail lineup.

This is full of holiday cheer. Roasted malt, spices, and bitter hops. Hoppy, toasted nuttiness, toffee, raisins and roasted flavors. Rich and flavorful. This is a nice seasonal.

Nuffield (3801) - Roseville, Minnesota, USA - MAY 22, 2004
Well-composed and inviting. Pours a nice dark chestnut brown with a moderate head. Aroma is deeply caramel, clearly well-hopped. More of a sipping beer than a fast-drinking beer, it has a nice maltiness with fruity and burnt butter notes, to go with a moderately lively palate and a bitterness clearly born of the Northwest style. This is what I imagine a beer to be when people talk abot malts and hops "in balance"--not a hop juice that has a lot of malts (like a Southern Californian barleywine or APA). Nothing uncomfortable in the finish. Iíll be sure to pick up a full six pack next Christmas, instead of just a single.

Not much of an aroma. Itís dark and reddish in color. Unfortunately, not much of a head. Nice sharp taste with just a touch of bitterness at the end

god (18) - Tucson, Arizona, USA - APR 24, 2004
Coca-cola colored, no head, medium fizz. Smells a bit like grapes and chocolate. A great balance of hops and malt. Bitter aftertaste lasts just the right amount of time. I'd gladly drink this beer all year long. It's all about the balance! One of my most favorite beers.

(Tap). Nice very dark brown. Nice feeling on the palate. Has mild chocolate taste without feeling too much like coffee. Very enjoyable brew, hope to have another soon.
