Bottle. Pours brown with an off white head. The aroma is grainy malty, with light toasty notes and some hoppy hints. The flavor is well balanced, with crackery pale malts, light toasty malt notes, and some floral-ish hoppy notes. Solid.

blankboy (6023) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - FEB 6, 2014
[Bottle (12oz)] Pours a deep amber-red with a small lasting frothy beige head. Aroma of spices, toasted caramel malt and light vegetal notes along with dark fruit and light sugar. Fruity flavour along with spice, a bit of alcohol, bready caramel malt, dark fruit, sugar and an average bitter finish. Medium bodied. Pretty good, I enjoyed it.

BBB63 (6013) - 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.

drowland (5992) - Valdosta, Georgia, USA - AUG 16, 2009
12oz bottle into a pint glass. The pour is very dark brown with lots of red when held to the light and a 2-finger khaki head that sticks. The aroma is laid back but shows hints of malt, dark fruits, and pumpkin pie spices. The flavor is sweet up front but finishes quite dry, as perhaps a combination of roasted malts and hop bitterness. Slightly creamy but still medium carbonation.

douglas88 (5917) - Portland, Oregon, USA - OCT 15, 2008
Bottle bought at the Utah State Wine Store. Pours a brown, almost purple color with a small white head. The aroma is light; some floral hops and light nuts and plum. The taste is quite hoppy; also some rich caramel malts, some prunes and other dark fruit and a light pine flavor. Some bitterness in the finish. Wow, this is 7%, I had no idea since it is very smooth. Some spices and a bit of brown sugar also. A very nice beer that as got me thinking about winter, well it did snow last weekend already.

2002 edition. Pours a reddish brown hue with a cream colored head that fades quickly. Has a sweet caramel smell with spicy hops.. A sweet caramel taste up front followed by nicely roasted grains. Medium - heavy body which leaves the flavors on the tongue for a while. Super smooth and easy drinking. nice. Jan 2003
