Had this puppy in a 12 oz bottle. Hoppy smell and bite, was almost like drinking a pine forest. Light in body, not too much carbponation, a perfect winter brew for me to enjoy. Drink up!

Dark brown with an orange hue and thick, cream-colored head. The head disappeared rather quickly. Some good lacing for the top half of the glass. Some malty sweetness in the aroma with a good bite from the hops. Great mouth feel through the whole beer. Sweet malt flavors that finish with a bitter hops tingle on the tongue. Good beer.

bottle. pours mahogany white thin head. nose is soapy, dull sweet malt and hop bitters. mouth is light carbo sweet amber malt, slight roastd barley, hop bittery finish. overall nothing terrible here, on note with other winters and by far not the worst decision you can make, whenst it comes to such.

IDogg (72) - Houston, Texas, USA - FEB 29, 2004
Nice dark brown color with slightly brown head that lasts a while. Aroma is strong, hints of coffee and spices. The flavor is initally welcoming and pleasant. Taste lingers for a while with typical West Coast heavy hops. Still a strong tasting beer that delievers a clean, chrisp, and enjoyable experience.

Poured from a 12 ounce brown glass bottle into an english pint glass (which means I opened another bottle to top it off to a true pint) and proceeded to explore. Some winter aleís need to be available year íround. The Full Sail carton sez "Available for 90 days only", so, enjoy, imbibe when here and wait 275 days or so until the circle twists back.
