12 oz bottle. pours a deep brown with a light tan head. Aroma is a little nutty with what i think are hints of coffee. . Medium to full body. It has a slightly nutty taste with hints of coffee and malt, may ee a little caramel also.

Beautiful aroma. Initial impression is warm, toasty and complex - myriad spices and dried fruits. Lingering, bitter palate very malty and nutty in character. A very challenging beer not for the faint of heart - definitely full of holiday cheer.

very nice for those cold nights when all you need to do is get a good buzz going, this certainly has the alcohol content for that.

2003 12oz. bottle. Pours a dark brown with a perfect tan head. Very little aroma. You can detect a subtle sherry, dried fruit in there but it is sublte. Medium to full bodied. I think the winter/ christmas seasonals are my favorite style. This one is not bad at all. It has a bit of a dryness that I like. You'll definitely get bit of warming in the belly.

Deep amber color with low to medium carbonation and head dying fast. Little aroma. Pretty rich caramel malt flavor and well balanced with hops. OK Beer.

A very deep dark color. Malty, not my favorite of winter ales. Does have a nice finish, a bit nutty with slight hops.

PBoegel (29) - New York, USA - NOV 20, 2010
Aromas of brown sugar and tree fruits. Touch of alcohol warmth and roast, caramel and vanilla. Some citrus orange and raspberries. Lots of citrus and berries with some chocolate and touch of coffee in the flavor profile. Color is deep garnet to brown. Nice bitterness in finish. Semi dry and medium light bodied. Well balanced and extremely drinkable at 7%.

Smells great, has a bit of sweetness with a very enjoyable bitterness thatís not overpowerinly hoppy. Not enough carbonation for my tastes.
