Pretty rufous-bronze color, light carbonation, and thin, fading off-white head. Interesting fruity aroma. Smells like cherry cider and cloves. Deep earthy flavor with juniper notes. Alcohol apparent on the palate. Strong and distinct. The bottom line is that I really enjoy sipping on this stuff.

The beer pours a nice dark garnet almost brown witha lovelly thick inch high creamy off white head..that stayed quite some time Nice aroma..chocolaty and spicy tones..though well done. I dunno but this seems to taste better than when I had the rest of the six pack..its flavourful yet smoother and less aggresivesweet malts followed by a creamy chocolaty taste followed by a nice "zap" of hops at the end ..very nice. Nice and smooth and creamy on the palate. Pretty drinkable even for a hot sweaty night

Sham (1845) - Seattle, Washington, USA - NOV 9, 2003
Very dark pour with lighter brown edges. Big head and nice lace. Mostly sweet malts in the aroma, not too big of a nose, slight hops. Roast malts in the flavor, some fruit and finished off with a bit of bittering hops. Not too bad of a ESA.

Poured a nice warm brown color with a whispy tan head. Strong bitter smell. Spicy assault that opens up into a bitter body. Very nice.

A decent brew that had too much of a sour aftertaste. But it is a good balance of hops and malts.

DiamondD (38) - Sammamish, Washington, USA - OCT 13, 2003
2003 12oz. bottle. Pours a dark brown with a perfect tan head. Very little aroma. You can detect a subtle sherry, dried fruit in there but it is sublte. Medium to full bodied. I think the winter/ christmas seasonals are my favorite style. This one is not bad at all. It has a bit of a dryness that I like. You'll definitely get bit of warming in the belly.

2002-Nice clean amber brew. Aromas of hops and light spice. Nice mouthfeel with malt countering the hops and spice nicely.
