Good beer, nothing outstanding. Aroma is dominated by malt and light spice. Medium bodied, with light carbonation, malty/spicy, with a slight burn in the finish.

bottle. pours mahogany white thin head. nose is soapy, dull sweet malt and hop bitters. mouth is light carbo sweet amber malt, slight roastd barley, hop bittery finish. overall nothing terrible here, on note with other winters and by far not the worst decision you can make, whenst it comes to such.

Dark brown pour with a short head. Nice hop/malt balance with pine and spice balancing toffee sweetness. Quite nice.

Poured from a 12 ounce brown glass bottle into an english pint glass (which means I opened another bottle to top it off to a true pint) and proceeded to explore. Some winter aleís need to be available year íround. The Full Sail carton sez "Available for 90 days only", so, enjoy, imbibe when here and wait 275 days or so until the circle twists back.

From bottle. Dark and dense, with toasty malt notes, hints of chocolate and mild spice. A decent holiday offering.

HeadyDE (484) - Delaware, USA - DEC 6, 2012
Dark brown almost black hue..slight head on edges..aroma is rather nondescript was expecting a much more noticed and pleasant nose..but not evident..faint malty nose presence if you try hard..palate and mouthfeel are fairly bland..picking up traces of licorice and anise and a bit of spice..alcohol is decently disguised..generic offering comes to mind..

hivemind (703) - New York, New York, USA - DEC 6, 2012
Draft at Pony with James, Andy, Feng. Pour was not memborable, very thin head, and I donít remember there being very much of an aroma either. This was thin-bodied and easy drinking, but wasnít a "good" beer in any other way. I tasted a little bit of a grainy maltiness.

Draft at pony bar with Brendan, Andrew and Feng. Pours a deep murky amber with light off white lacing. Pours a hazy amber with no head. Aroma is faint malt, pretty bland. Mouthfeel is medium to thin with bland notes of malt, fruit, pils, light cocoa and spice.

Deep copper, clear, off-white head. Aroma of toasted malts, come caramel, light spicy hops. Flavor features nutty, biscuity, toasty malt with a little toffee sweetness, and some piney hop flavor late. Medium-full bodied and lightly warming. Good winter warmer.
