Pours a dark amber, head faded fasss.. Decent smell, malt, spices. Taste is full of malt up front, and finish with a nice light hop kick. Not a bad brew. Old Ale? Mehhh... solid drinker though..

Pours darkish red with little head, almost can't see through. Malty with a bit of hops at the end. Slightly sweet aroma. It sort of sticks to the top of your mouth. A decent winter beer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

I love all Full Sail brews, but I was a *bit* disappointed in this one. It smells wonderful, looks great in the bottle, and upon first sip tastes just as great and hoppy as I expected. However, as it sits in my mouth a second it becomes all other Full Sail products---hoppy and clean-finishing. Maybe I'm a bit rusty after being "away" for a while but this one just doesn't do anything for me that the Full Sail Pale didn't do. In other words, pretty packaging and nice dark color but it's just pretty, dark and typical Full Sail.

Aroma of cinammon, nutmeg, caramel, pine. Appears a crystal-clear deep mahogany with a small creamy tan head that dissipates. Flavor is bitter, hoppy, followed by chocolate and roast over a decent malt base; well-spiced. Palate is medium, slick and moderately effervescent. Overall, this beer is a bit greater than the sum of its parts.

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.
