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

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.

Rather middle of the road in taste - neither very hoppy or truly rich and malty. On a night when friends and I rated 20 winter beers, this finished a bit below average

6 pack of bottles from HEB on Brodie Lane - Austin, TX. Popped the cap, nice mist in the bottle neck, strangest senation/aroma of raw, clean green vegetables - mainly green bean! Also roasted wheat and grains on the nose. Clear, dark caramel brown / rust red color. Khaki head, almost 2 fingers high at first, mellowed out to 1/4 inch layer. Taste has that same hint of green beans, freshly snapped. Picked up some pepper (black?) in the taste - is this bottled green bean casserole or what?! Pepper essence grows on the nose as the beer warms. Nice long finish. A very different take on the Winter Ale.

Aroma of black cherries, malty sweetness, and a hint of pine/resin hops. Beautiful deep mahogany in color with a small off white head. Flavor consists of raisin, plums, a hint of roast, and a strong pine and resin hop flavor. Flavor is backed up nicely by a assertive bitterness. Another good year for wassail.

Very smooth light tasting with an after taste that sneaks up on you. Excellent winter ale, puts you in the spirit.

Coca-cola colored, no head, medium fizz. Smells a bit like grapes and chocolate. A great balance of hops and malt. Bitter aftertaste lasts just the right amount of time. I'd gladly drink this beer all year long. It's all about the balance! One of my most favorite beers.

Iím new at rating but this was pretty good! Spicy flavor reminescent of eggnog with cinnamon and nutmeg. Not too sweet yet not overly hoppy.
