coldbrewky (1431) - Hippetown East, New York, USA - FEB 13, 2013
Sampler at the Dutch last night. Light hazy brown in the glass. Thinner anemic head. Nose of flat weak malt. Body has an off tang of stale hop that lingers in an unpleasant manner. Glad I didnít pay for this.

arminjewell (6322) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - JAN 31, 2013
Pour out of 12 oz bottle dark blackish red pour with tan head, aroma brought notes of caramel, toffee, roast malts, some slight biscuit, bread, dark fruits, caramelized sugars, nice spice with clove, slight cinnamon as well, slight earthy and spicy hops as well. Taste is spicy up front with cinnamon, clove, some cherry juice and dark raisin go into dark toffee, caramelizes sugars, dark fruits with a hint of earth, finishing fairly bitter and dry. Pretty nice, like the way this was crafted.

maxwelldeux (3760) - Everett, Washington, USA - JAN 27, 2013
Bottle. Pours a dark brown with almost no head on it. Nose is a little malty, but not all that strong. Taste is quite malty with some slight caramel and toasty notes. Finish is slightly bitter. Not bad.

12oz bottle 1/17/13 (Crown Liquor-COS)-40į in English Pint-Pours a dark ruby red with a small tan head. Aroma of roasted malt, caramel, and toffee. Taste of the same with more sweetness and hops. This medium to full bodied brew is a nice tasty brew.

mensch (259) - Loveland, Colorado, USA - JAN 14, 2013
Dark reddish-brown with a tightly knit tan head. Understated aromas, brown sugar and nutmeg. This beer is smooth and malty with holiday spice flavors and a little hop note in the finish. Complex and tasty, but lacking a bit in aroma and, for a Stong Ale, strength.

Pours black, low foam and lacing. Very drinkable and lightly spiced winter ale. Very nice

blklab2007 (1999) - Connecticut, USA - JAN 10, 2013
Bottle poured a very dark mahogany brown with a layer of tan head at the surface. Aroma has dark roasted malt, light spice, and rich sugary sweetness. Mouth feel is medium and the carbonation medium light. Flavor opens with nice malts, light roast, chocolate touches, and mellow hops lending a bit of spice.

braznadian (59) - Washington, USA - JAN 6, 2013
Beautiful nutty brown color, clear and has small bubbles coming up from bottom entire time. Aromas of raisin, prune and dark fruit. Roasted smell too, with a creamy light tan head. Leaves a nice lace on glass. Sweetness strikes first, touch of vanilla and I get a hint of citrus zest. Spicy flavors follow with black pepper and a general nuttiness. Finish is a roasted coffee bitterness. Has a nice warming effect and a sort of foamy volume to it. One of the best winter warmers Iíve had so far.

12oz bottle poured into a tulip glass. Clear deep dark brown with mahogany and burgundy hues - and decent beige head - amazing. Roasted chestnuts nose, with some pine hops, earth, dark caramel malts, mellow spiciness and rich dark fruit and port wine notes. Sweetish toffee flavor, medium bitterness, juicy caramel malts and nice hoppy notes with some dates and figs. Med-full bodied, rich, complex, flavorful, balanced, soft carbonation, alcohol well hidden - One of my favorite beers. Well done.
