Bottle. Mahogony-brown beer with a tan head. Roast and nutty aroma with light caramel. Nutty and caramel flavor with light toffee. Medium bodied. Caramel and light toffee lingers with nuttiness and light roast.

pretty good. pours murky light brown with very minimal head and fizzy carbonation. head dies completely after pour. aroma and taste of light caramel and cherries and some carbonic acid from the carbonation and relatively thin body. pretty clean tasting for a winter ale.

Stuedmaster (346) - San Diego, California, USA - FEB 20, 2014
I’m beginning to think that I’m just not much of a fan of this style. This is a decent beer, has a nice appearance, deep ruby amber with a beige head that leaves lacing. Aroma is barely detectable, of sweet malt and bread. The flavors are too separate and don’t blend together well. It is too bitter and astringent with a watery texture. There is some citrus and spice going on but it’s overwhelmed by the bitterness and lack of malt backbone. It is better as is warms in the glass. Just not my thing.

ABUSEDGOAT (2607) - California, USA - FEB 6, 2014
Darker amber color, moderate head, some lace/retention. Aroma of chocolate, caramel, dark bread, vanilla, spice, light grass. Medium bodied, quite drinkable, big vanilla flavor.

PotjeBier (2749) - Amsterdam, NETHERLANDS - JAN 19, 2013
On tap @ brewpub. Clear brown color. Off white head (not much). Aroma’s of sweet, roasted (toasted) malts, toasted bread, some coffee, a bit of fruit. Flavor is roasted, slightly sweet. Medium bodied. Finishes somewhat dry, no new taste.

brokensail (16057) - Dublin, California, USA - DEC 27, 2012
Dark amber pour with a khaki head. Mostly sweet and malty nose with some bread, winter spices such as nutmeg and all spice, a mild roastiness, and some grass. A bit of yeast and chocolate, too. The flavor is actually a bit acidic. Some bready malt, spices, toast, and hints of chocolate. A little bit of yeast, definite grass note, and a touch of yeast. Not a very well focused or put together beer.
