Beardface (1517) - Eugene, Oregon, USA - DEC 7, 2008
Nice deep brown pour with a middling tan head. Some astringency in the flavor along with a hefty malt profile and some caramel flavoring. Nice hoppy flavor to this one too, solid amount of balance. Not a bad brew at all.

SuperDave (1932) - Beautiful Sunny Mesa, Arizona, USA - DEC 13, 2008
Brownish pour with a fading head. Fruit, malt, nuts and spicy hops in the aroma and flavor. Like liquid fruitcake. Im not a big fan of fruitcake, but this is alright. Decent hoppy bite and alcohol on the finish. The holiday brews are all starting to run together...

Pours a deep copper to brown with minimal tan head. Nice nutty aroma up front. Chocolate and pecan flavors from the malts with some grapefruit, pine, and moderate bitterness on the back that lingers on your palate. Good but not great.

Bottle. Appearance: Murky brown with a thin, fizzy head. Moderate lacing around the sides. Aroma: A nose of brown sugar, malts and a hint of spice. Flavor: Nuts, caramel, spice, with a little alcohol on the backside. Palate: Medium body with moderate carbonation. Overall: Nothing too impressive. Note: It is a winter seasonal, but I see nothing wrong with drinking it in the middle of summer.

brenn79 (1685) - Idaho, USA - JUN 19, 2010
12 oz. bottle- Pours dark brown with a thin head, aroma is sugary malts with a hint of hops. The flavor is dominantly malt as well, although it is June, the expiration date is way back in March, I am sure the hops were more prominent in date, not a bad brew, and Iím not sure how accurate my review is, i will try to have another next winter.

michael-pollack (4960) - King of Prussia, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 10, 2010
12oz. Bottle: Fain aroma of malt. Poured deep amber/mahogany/brown in color with a medium-sized, creamy, dense, tan head that diminished but lasted throughout. Clear. Lightly sparkling. A few small particles present. Excellent lacing. Flavor is lightly sweet. Tastes of malt, light nuts, Earth, and a hint of caramel. Medium body. Average texture. Average carbonation. Malt, slight nut, light Earth, and hit of caramel finish is lightly dry. Not bad, just boring.

Ron (2908) - Rochester, New York, USA - DEC 17, 2010
Warm and malty. Robust and roasted flavors. Has a subtle hoppy taste with hints of dried fruits. Has a nice dark color and a very faint off white foam head. Lots of bubbles. Not too bad.

mansquito (3980) - Nueva York, New York, USA - DEC 19, 2010
Some corner store six-pack ($11): Pours a transparent brown color with a beige head. Aroma is malty with a good amount of hops. In fact, the hops were a surprise in this beer, as I expected it to be far more malty. If anything, the hops might have balanced it to far in that direction. Alcohol was not perfectly covered either, especially with the spicy Jamaican food that I was eating with this beer. I guess it was the wrong food combination for this beer, but nevertheless the flaws of the beer became apparent with the pairing.

PapaSkeetSkeet (1000) - Providence, Rhode Island, USA - NOV 19, 2011
brown with dusty brown head that fades to smooth, oily surface. Aroma of clean caramel, grassy, dusty yeast, hint of berry. Light-to-medium body (a flaw for the style, I want it a bit heavier!) old bitter leaf and light caramel flavor... ok on this end.

kerenmk (3089) - Tel Aviv, ISRAEL - JAN 15, 2012
Bottle at a winter beer tasting in Tel Aviv. Dark brown and almost opaque. Cranberry, bruit and malt nose, bitter, a little medicinal mouth, feels smooth and sticky, long finish, full body.
