22oz bomber. Pours a medium, near cola brown. Carbonation was very light, though I would not consider this a problem, given the crispness. Aroma is piney and faintly spicy. The primary problem with this beer is that it is dreadfully unbalanced, with the grassy hop flavour completely overwhelming any maltiness or dark fruit one would expect in a winter ale. Mouth feel was clean and light, but taste was akin to bug spray.

Draught at the brewpub
Dark mahogany color, almost black, with creamy brownish head. A dark beer, bold but quite dry; it manages to convey both the roasty quality of the dark malts and the resiny quality of the hops. Similar to the CDA, but with an additional notch with the malt.
Very good.

Theydon_Bois (17228) - Hazlemere, the lower Xhitlerns, Buckinghamshire, ENGLAND - NOV 20, 2014
Keg at Harmon Taproom, 07/11/14. Dark chestnut brown with a decent beige covering. Nose is light charr, tangy red berry fruit, pine, dusty hop covering. Taste comprises dank hops, earthy roast, light charr, spice, more red berry licks. Medium bodied, fine carbonation, semi drying close. Drinkable CDA, ticks the boxes, touch more spice at the curtain call.

5000 (6862) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - JAN 9, 2013
Bottle:   Super deep caramel, beige head, frothy, nice lacing.   Strong earthy cocoa notes, a bit shrubby and woodsy, slight biscuit.   Soft biscuit, pine, nuttiness up front, backside is a malty cocoa with a bitter finish.   Seems somewhat smooth up front, becomes slightly rough on the backside.   Seems bright and a little brash.   Body and mouthfeel are moderate.   Piny finish, cocoa and biscuit linger.   Reminds me of an English Strong crossed with an American Strong.   Decent Winter offering.   Just wished we had the snow to go along with this one.

CapFlu (5101) - Victoria, British Columbia, CANADA - JAN 7, 2013
Sampled at EskimoDave’s houseparty. Very strong bitterness in the nose. Highly gritty bitter coffee and chalky vanilla. I actually agree with Jeff from Vancouver Island Brewing that this is good for not being a typical Winter Spiced. The hops and deepness is somewhat like Hopworks Abominable.

BrewDad (5328) - Olympia, Washington, USA - DEC 24, 2012
Dark brown in color, hazy with a thin tan head. Nice malt and deep rich flavors. Nice hops backing this was a crisp easy drinking winter ale. Some spices come through and make for a nice brew.

CampesinoTino (800) - Seattle, Washington, USA - DEC 17, 2012
Bomber. Appearance is a faded dark brown color with a solid layer of tan foam. In the nose, there’s notes of toasted malt, brown sugar, toffee and citrus. The taste opens up with moderate chocolate, caramel and roasted malt flavors along with some molasses, pine resin and herbal hops characteristics. The body is substantially creamy with medium-level carbonation and a slightly charred, bitter finish. Stylistically, very similar to Jubelale but a tad less balanced.
