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.

Picked this up in a sixer for like $4, liqour store was blowing out the winters, there loss, my gain. This is a very well balanced winter brew, unlike most winter beers that go over the top on direction or the other. Big hops, but rounded out with sweet malts on the finish to the end. Very good beer, and aged well as well. Good score on my part.

Extemely malty. What stone Ruination is for hops this is for malt. I was hoping for a spiced seasonal with the name. Not my cup of tea but points for having the balls to be assertive.

UPDATED: NOV 13, 2007 2007 Rating Lovely brown nice tan head again Again the light chocolate, dry fruits and some floral notes with some alcohol notes as well Lots of malt complexity, with some chocolate, toast, touch of dark fruit followed by a nice spicy hop bite... this year the hop bite is more controlled but lasts long into the finish. Again a fabulous beer... I always look forward to every winter. The treat is to see what time does to this one definitely get a couple of six packs :) 2006 - Rating shiny deep amber with a nice tan head which settles to a nice film on top Some chocolate, dried fruits and a floral hop nose with some alcohol as the beer warms Malty with just a touch of chocolatey flavors before a sizeable spicy noble hop takes over into the finish. Medium light bodied on the tongue with a long dry finish with some creaminess Overall a very good winterbrew I would have preferred a little more malt complexity... I prefer my winter beers malty. Nonetheless a very well made beer.

I found the nose weak, the taste disappointing, and the palate watery. Nose was burnt. The flavor was very bitter, of the citrus rind variety, with undertones of chocolate. It was nice to look at. Aftertaste was a bit mediciney.

This is a good winter beer, pretty strong, youll feel it after one or two. Came in a mix pack, but would definitley buy a 6er.

Pours a dark amber color. Very small head which faded quickly. Aroma is some citrus hops, coffee, and some smoke. Flavor is very well balanced with a lot of toasted malt, and a fair bit of hop bitterness. FInishes well, with lingering hops and just a hint of alchohol. Only complaint is the small head. A very solid beer all around. Highly recommend! Paired very well with beef.
