Cornfield (5570) - Oak Forest, Illinois, USA - MAY 9, 2007
This has a deep garnet body and a creamy tan head that, while not lasting too long, manages to do some thick lacing. The aroma is a tad light but pleasasnt, smokey malts with a nutty bitterness. Much more to the flavor, rich malts lightly roasted, woodiness, and a mild grapefruit and pine hoppiness. Although named as a Winter warmer, this does just fine in the Spring as well.

duff (5484) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - JUN 18, 2004

BückDich (5464) - McCall, Idaho, USA - JAN 17, 2003
A dark red winter ale, very little head. Aroma was spicy as was the flavor. Reminded me of sierra nevada celebration but not quite as good.

Cloudy brownish red, dense spongy head. Nice brown sugar, molassess, maybe slightly smoky aroma. Earthy and smoky flavors at forst, then an odd but likeable herbal note - oregano, maybe? - and a touch of cinnamon.

decaturstevo (5390) - decatur, Tennessee, USA - DEC 19, 2008
A hint of spice and brown sugar. A deep dark brown/red pour with tight white head and lace. A fruitiness like cherries. A semi sweet malt flavor as well. A pretty nice bitter as well. Pretty tasty and complexity that I enjoy. A nice winters warmth from this little nugget as well.

kramer (5346) - Sunbury, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 18, 2006
12 oz bottle, via acertain. Pours a dark mahogany with a creamy finger sized off-white head. Aroma composed of spices, sweet caramel malt, toffee, and a hint of alcohol. Sweet fruity and spicy flavor. Most prominantly of cinnamon and nutmeg. Finish is all spice. Medium bodied with a slightly sticky mouthfeel and moderate fine bubbled carbonation. Another fine effort from Full Sail. I will say that by the end of the bottle the spoices do get a little tiring on the palate, but that’s how I feel about many Christmas seasonals.
