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.

willblake (2653) - Bel Air, Maryland, USA - JAN 12, 2004
Pours a reddish brown, dark, rich brown head. Nice. Aroma of spiced, chocolate truffles and booze. Thick, though not syrupy body is pleasant enough to have another. A decent winter beer that warms the spirits, but there are better winter choices. Would have appreciated more bitterness, but malt seems nicely balanced.

Dark brown color. Some aroma of caramel. Strong caramel flavor, but smooth enough; caramel finish, sharp. Monodimensional but drinkable.

UPDATED: FEB 11, 2007 A nice winter brew...but not as robust as St. Nick. Some wonderful orange zest, white pepper notes...though a bit of a winey finish....just a bit. Also some nice semi-sweet caramel midnotes. Quaffable. Definitely quaffable.

Malt and spiced aroma form a deep brown body with a brown head. The palate is medium. The taste is a nice mix of caramel malt, roasted malt and some spices. Thankfully the spices donít overwhelm the rest of the beer.

black pour with not much of a head just some lingering lacings. licorice and malts on the nose with some other spices. easy on the palate with a nice taste of piney hops.

12oz bottle. very dark, tobacco black color with little head.. malty aroma with hints of nuts and earth tones.. initial hit is very winter and nicely balanced.. roasted malty flavoring leads to a hoppy spiced fruity finish. with little loose air.. some toffee flavors can be justified in the aftertaste.. okay brew, nothing great but a very typical concocted winter ale- with a cornicopia of hops.
