This is a wonderful holiday ale. The aroma is fruity and spicy. The taste is just great - chewy with a hop bit that is made for cold winter nights. Glad I paid to have some shipped to Maine.

Black liquorice and cherry aroma, I also get some strawberries in there too, Pours a dark ruby red, thin filmy head. Flavor consists of oak, sage, and dark bitter chocolate, very creamy finish. Palate is biting, sour, and bitter in the finish.

Pours a deep copper to brown with minimal tan head. Nice nutty aroma up front. Chocolate and pecan flavors from the malts with some grapefruit, pine, and moderate bitterness on the back that lingers on your palate. Good but not great.

Not what I expected from this brew at all. Poured dark chocolate brown with a nice tan head. Had a definate bite to it, but not a hoppy bitterness bite like I expected. Has a full body, very complex, a nice brew.

Dark amber color with red highlights. Thin lacy head. Maltiness is subtle in the beginning and lingers in the end. Could use more hops!

BritAlesRule (212) - Colorado Springs, Colorado, USA - NOV 6, 2012
Pours a dark chocolate brown. Head quickly becomes a thin film though the lacing remains steadfast. Nose is spruce and biscuity chocolate. Flavor is bitter coffee and chocolate malts with a piney aftertaste. Inviting mouthfeel and a lingering cocoa aftertaste. Donít get as much from this as I would like.

brstp (201) - Washington DC, USA - NOV 8, 2007
Bottle. Dark brown color, light brown head with nice doily lacing. Aroma of chocolate, spice, grass, light tangerine. Juicy citrus hop up front that quickly goes to milky malt, pretty thick mouthfeel with a tangy long finish. Was not initially impressed but it improves with some thought and attention.

Pours from 12 oz bottle a dark brown with offwhite head. Fragrance is malt,and spices. Taste is very slightly sweet with hints of cinnamon and fruit. Echos a citrusy bitter orange and caramel. A very enjoyable winter ale.
