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 ale’s need to be available year ’round. 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.

Nice dark pour with a thick white head. Feint roasted malt, nutty aroma. Tastes of roasted malt, slightly sweet and nutty with a slightly bitter finish. Very nice.

loubar (51) - Los Gatos, California, USA - NOV 4, 2014
UPDATED: NOV 11, 2014 Nose is subtle so the toasty, nutty flavor surprises to the upside. Not overly complex. What there is the toastiness on a malt and subtle hops base in a pleasingly balanced offering. Assertive without being excessive. The only thing I don’t like is the high ABV.

This is a good winter ale. Aroma could be a little more interesting; however, the taste is spot on with plenty of the roasty richness you look for in an English strong. This finish is rich with a sharp bitter ending. Overall, very nice.

"good winter beer. i think this is prototypical spiced old ale, which is to say it’s quite tasty. very malty up front, but still has enough hops for a slightly bitter finish. well done."

stevoj (2292) - Boise, Idaho, USA - SEP 17, 2014
Nice and meaty English ale, dark copper colored with small creamy beige head. Light nutty aroma, flavor is more earthy, nutty, dark malts with a small hops bite at the end. Some lingering bitterness. Would not be out of place in a British pub next to the fire....

Pours a nice dark brown with off-white head. Malt, caramel, and spice on the nose; follows onto the palate. Finishes with some roasted character.
