On tap. Iím guessing I got the wrong beer. My beer was dark amber with a thick tan head. Winter seasonings and a chocolately flavor. Smooth mouthfeel. It hit me hard, so I guess the alcohol was over 6. Looking back over the tap selection, I might have gotten a Weyerbacher Winter. That would explain the malty chocolatyness and color. So I guess Iíll need to have both beers now to see which is which!

This is by far the best seasonal ale Iíve had this year. Hints of vanilla and spice with a strong bite that finishes clean and crisp. Love it!!! Iím in the Christmas spirit now !!!

12 Oz bottle. Pours clear, dark brown with a white head. Aromas of vanilla and anice. Flavor is the same, but then very quickly very bitter. Medium body with a thin mouthfeel and average carbonation. Overall, subpar seasonal ale, with not very good beer flavors.

Drought. Dark amber-brown with spongy beige head, caramrl aroma, slightly flat molasses taste, medium carbonation, medium unremarkable finish. Leaves a bit of a metallic taste on your palate.

Mep3222 (994) - East Greenbush, New York, USA - JAN 10, 2014
Aroma of spices, malt and maybe even some dark fruit. Taste is malty with some spice but a bit watery on the palate and an odd finish. Descent but not great. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

asheft (2778) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 26, 2013
Bottle. Sweet bread crust aroma with brown sugar and red fruit. Clear chestnut appearance under white wisps. Flavor is sweet brown sugar with some faint brown sugar, dried fruit, red fruit, and moderate bitterness that is in balance with the moderate flavour. Lacklustre. Medium body, medium carbonation.

A strangely flavored, surprisingly light beer. Dark colored, some raisin in the flavor, also some caramel, not much bitterness.

Bulk_Carrier (3021) - Mt Reclusion, Vermont, USA - JAN 24, 2013
It poured a nice one inch light colored head on top of a hazeless copper colored body. The smell has some malts, light winter spices such as nutmeg, allspice and clove and has some really subtle light chocolates tones underneath. The hops are mostly non-existent in the smell. The taste is sweet between the previously mentioned flavors with the hops coming out very slightly to balance it a bit. The palate is smooth and clean with a light to medium sort of feel. It has a crisp bittter finish. Overall, this is an interesting take on an English IPA, but I like it for the most part.

Imaena (2128) - Maputo, MOZAMBIQUE - JAN 18, 2013
Bottle. Not one of Gearyís finest brews. When you have HSA as a winter stalwart why did you go and brew this?

TATE (385) - Lubec, Maine, USA - JAN 1, 2013
Bottle. Pours a deep ruby color with a thin tan head. Molasses aroma with that taste coming through as well. A bit of raisin flavor too. The hops do not come through until late which is odd as this is listed as an IPA. Its a bit heavy and syrupy but I do like it as well as most other Gearyís offerings.
