2003 - Clear but dark garnet color. The tan head is nice and creamy. The glass lacing is very nice. Sweet and spicy aroma. Lots of malt and a good amount of hops up front. The flavors then mellow until after the swallow when the hops play a big role. The body is medium full and the finish is fairly dry and lasts for a good while. Overall a pleasant beer.

Vibrant aroma with malt, hops, spices and citrus all rolled into one. Nice bold character in the flavor, hoppy yet somewhat spicy. Its been better in years past, to me more of a winter warmer but still a winner.

BBB63 (6394) - La Porte, Indiana, USA - DEC 26, 2003
Garnet hue with massive off-white head which settles down to a foamy ring, very good lace. The aroma hinted of toasted malts, mocha, vanilla, allspice, clove, fruitcake, piney hops, and earthy yeast esters. The flavors start sugary sweet with moderate spices, but really didn't overwhelm. The piney and citric hop nature kicked in to high gear midway through the tasting. The finish was a combination of old school ale (earthy, sublime and dry) and west coast new age (hoppy, brash, and creamy). Very nice mouthfeel in this underrated sesaonal brew which I have enjoyed every single time I have had the chance. Recommended.

UPDATED: JUL 24, 2013 Clear dark amber with a light tan head. Rich toffee’d plum juice, some burnt caramel and wet oak. Divine chewiness, robustness and a touch of roast, amazing all around, warming, relaxing, satisfying.

Pours a deep copper color with a small off-white head. Aroma is sweet malt with some hops. Great lacing. Flavor is quite hoppy with some nice woody notes. Not as much spiciness as i expected but more bitter. Nice bitter swallow. Body is pretty dry. This is not bad.
