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 (2654) - 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.

Aroma of cinammon, nutmeg, caramel, pine. Appears a crystal-clear deep mahogany with a small creamy tan head that dissipates. Flavor is bitter, hoppy, followed by chocolate and roast over a decent malt base; well-spiced. Palate is medium, slick and moderately effervescent. Overall, this beer is a bit greater than the sum of its parts.

On tap @ Falling Rock poured a clear dark brown with a small but lingering tan head. Aromas of toffee and spice with a hint of dark fruit. Palate was medium bodied and smooth. Flavor was malty with a hint of bitter chocolate and a smooth clean finish.

Bottle sampled at hey_kevinís Iowa City gathering. Light brown in color with a light ruby red color showing up around the edges. Slightly hoppy aroma along with some malt. Slightly hoppy finish. This wasnt bad, but it wasnt very memorable either.

Late 2005, on tap at local restaurant. Pours deep mahogany color with nice creamy white head. Aroma is sweet malt and nice American hops. Resin, citrus, pine. The aroma was probably my favorite part of the beer. The first taste is all hops, tasted as expected from aroma. Then it turned sweet. I was able to taste the bready malt and a slight chocolate flavor which was nice. Then the hops snap back into action, cleaning my mouth. It has nice body, full but not heavy. It was a little to sweet for my taste. Fine beer, but not my favorite from these guys.

Pours a garnet color out of the bottle, with a bit of lacing. Malty and fruity aroma. Creamy chocolate and clovish taste, with lingering alcohol... hops creep in at the end. Not my favorite winter ale.
