Draft. Poured a deep amber with a slightly thicker than thin tan head with good lacing. Aroma had a great balance between the malts and hops and the flavor was the same way. Nice bitterness on the back end. A great take on a winter warmer going the ESB route. Nicely done.

12 Fl. Oz. Bottle from Liquor Depot of Dover (Dover, DE). Poured cloudy, amber in color with a small beige head and some spotty lacing on the glass. Aroma is malty and bready, combined with some dark fruit notes. Taste is malty, some bitter notes and some booze in there too. Not bad enjoyable beer.

Very solid, one of the best ESBs out there for taste and the higher alcohol doesnít really come through that much. Itís got the pleasant hop bitterness, not insanely citrusy. The best Heavy Seas Iíve had and available in 6-packs, definitely worth it.

bottle @ Party Town / Florence KY --- Clear dark amber color, two finger beige head, broken curtain of lace. Aroma of malt. Taste is bracing malt that stays big through a carbonated swallow, moving to a spicy, hoppy finish. Solid brew, but also heavy and off-balance.

Bottle to snifter,small off white diminishing head with sparce lacing copper ruby in color. Average roasted aroma. Thin medium light body, average carbonation with a short bitter finish. Rather an unimpressive beer.

Appearance is amber with small white head. Aroma is a bit lacking punch. Taste is bitter hops with a slight amount of alcohol. Overall not the best winter ale out there.

Poured from 12 oz bottle. Appearance is caramel brown with gold highlights. Aroma is bready, with caramel and molasses hints. Taste is very malty, with a strong cinnamon flavor, with supporting caramel and molasses and nutmeg. Overall very good, went well with stew.

Drank this on our trip to St. Michaels. Copper pour. Itís malty, generally clean flavors. Not a lot to it, but itís good.
