Tasted in a snifter, small amount poured. Smells: Caramel prominently, with hints of Roasted malts Coloring: Deep amber with a vanilla colored head that dissipates relatively fast, especially for being in a tulip. Taste: Caramel flavors with hints of Rye. A nice Roasty finish. a swish brings out a very Creamy mouthfeel. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Nothing too fancy here. Solid, very drinkable, and strong enough. The rye adds a nice touch.

Pours a clear amber body with white head. Lots of caramel malt on this, along with plenty of spice on the nose; follows onto the palate. Finishes with rye spice. A good winter ale.

I picked this up at Foremost Liquors in my neighborhood in Chicago, IL; enjoyed after an especially crappy day at work. This stuff is just what I needed! Aroma of chocolate malt, somewhat bready, Iím reading rasins in the descriptions and I can buy that. Appearance is a rich amber / toffee with a thin white head. Taste is very smooth, somewhat sweet, captures the season very well, creamy, itís got roasted malt and a toffee flavor. Another great one from Chicagoís best brewery!

35,5cl bottle, Kaisla, Helsinki. Poured dark copper color with a nice head, long lasting lacing. Hops and caramel in aroma. Flavor is caramel, coffee, smoke notes and fruits. Quite long finish with some coffee notes. Really interesting beer, drinkable and tasty.

crazyvin (1939) - New York, USA - NOV 11, 2011
On tap @ pony bar. A nice brown hue almost totally clear an nice off white head that had some retention and not much lace. Aroma had a big malt note upfront mild roasted notes and a nice nutty quality. Some spice notes were present. Flavor had good balance between the nuttiness and the roasted malts. There was a slight spiciness in the aftertaste. Full bodied with a dry finish.

Bomber from binnys. Pours yellowish with little white floaties in it. White light head. Lemon hoppy aroma. Slightly bitter, aggressive but smooth hops, fruity citrus and refreshing lemon taste. Delicious

stevencon (446) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - NOV 29, 2012
Brown with white head. Light grainy rye and toffee aroma. Similar taste with a bit of a sour mash rye finish. This beer is medium body dark full of flavor and low alcohol, I want more.

This pours a medium brown color with a foamy, beige head. The aroma is very malty with some spices. The taste is pretty good as itís not too strong or too weak. Itís slightly sweet with malts and caramel as well brown sugar. It has a little bit of a robust taste as well. This makes for a pretty good winter brew!
