Bottle. Pours amber with white fluffy head. Leaves lacing. A lot of sourness in both the aroma and the flavor. I hope this is just a bad batch because it is terrible, all six of the pack were the same (I guess that attests to the fact that it was drinkable).

medium body, flavor of roasted malt, candy sugar and ample hope spice. lots of hop bitterness too... definitely on the zippy side of winter ales - quite good but I usually prefer the mellow-malty style of winter ales...

Six from Reubens. Dark ruby red, thick lasting head, lots of lacing. Smells of raisin bread and hops. Warm comforting savoriness for a cold February night.

Another solid offering. Pours a dark ruby head with creamy and moderately persistent head. Roasted malts clearly on the nose with hops coming through. Taste is a bright burst of mild chocolate and cherry. Hopping gives a lot of berry cheer in a long aftertaste. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bottle pours reddish brown with a medium white head. Aroma is citrusy, caramel, with a slight hint of alcohol. Taste is primarily caramel malts, cinnamon, and nutmeg with a well-balanced bitter finish. Iím not normally a fan of holiday ales but this one was enjoyable.

This is one of those good to drink holiday beers if it is what you have available. If you have had many Winter Ales this one will leave a little disappointed.

deprogram (114) - Renton, Washington, USA - OCT 30, 2007
Off-white head that dissipates slowly. Lovely dark red color in the glass, sweet, delicate nose with a tinge of hops. Tends more toward the hop than malt, which is nice for a winter ale. Decent bite, but not overwhelming in any way. Nicely done.

jeg (114) - Austin, Texas, USA - DEC 17, 2007
Dark amber color, spicy candylike aroma. Caramel malty flavor. Nice but unspectactular winter.

HoppyGuy (111) - Washington, USA - OCT 18, 2008
Bottle. Pours an ebony color with a one-inch tan head. Malty, somewhat floral aroma with a hint of evergreen. Taste is malty, a bit roasted, with a slightly bitter aftertaste. Good hops balance. It has a deep flavor, with lots of character, that really speaks to the tastebuds. Soft mouthfeel. I’d like to pair this brew with a hearty stew or a stroganoff dish.
