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

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.

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.

vulcanmeister (199) - La Grande, Oregon, USA - DEC 29, 2009
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.

shakespeare33 (197) - Washington DC, USA - JAN 5, 2008
12oz bottle. very dark, tobacco black color with little head.. malty aroma with hints of nuts and earth tones.. initial hit is very winter and nicely balanced.. roasted malty flavoring leads to a hoppy spiced fruity finish. with little loose air.. some toffee flavors can be justified in the aftertaste.. okay brew, nothing great but a very typical concocted winter ale- with a cornicopia of hops.

At the brewery... An easy drinking winter beer, with good spices, some hops and a lite body, but a nice head.

Hophazard (193) - San Francisco, California, USA - FEB 11, 2011
Clean, ruby color; good clarity with taupe head. Carmel and dark sugar rise from the glass. Slick mouthfeel with medium body. Plum, blackberries and carmel flavors blend nicely. Finish is smooth but not crisp (in a good way). A great winter warmer to be enjoyed by a fire.
