Impressed, the best thing I have had from Highland. A little different for a winter ale. Medium bodied. Mostly malt with light cinnamon spiciness. Few hops. Not bitter, but not too sweet. Low carbonation, highly drinkable.

Apparently everyone in Asheville goes crazy over the release of this beer. It is a good brew and is widely available in Atlanta. Pours light amber with slight white head. Spiciness in the scent and taste is slight and blends well with the sweet-leaning flavor. Medium light body and well carbonated. Draft - Augustine’s - Atlanta, GA

Reddish-gold with a small bubbly head. Fruity, spicy-sweet, with some candy apple flavors. Slightly bitter finish. Really tasty.

Draft at Grove Park Inn in Asheville, NC. Quite surprised at this beer. Taste of toffee and caramel. Good beer for a spiced, winter ale.

merlin48 (656) - Jenkins, Kentucky, USA - JAN 16, 2009
Sharp looking copper body poured from the 22 oz bottle. Tall tan head. Aroma is vanilla, orange peel and dark fruits. Taste has raisins, figs, cinnamon, nutmeg, molasses, and spicy hops underneath. Vanilla is overdone in this 2008 version compared to other vintages, but still my favorite winter ale.

Great looking dark ruby ale. Clear. Very malty with spices and vanilla. Cinammon and gingerbread. Fuk yeah for Highland, this is the best Winter Ale I’ve had all season. Very good in the ways of drinkablitity and complexity. Get this beer... today!

beeryum (652) - Norcross, Georgia, USA - APR 12, 2006
Bottle. Dark rudy brown pour. Smelled like cola - sweet malty and some prunish fruits and spices. Sweeter malty flavors, medium fruits, and a fair bit of spice for flavors. A touch of clove too.

Pours a very clear copper brown with a thin tan head. Medium bodies smooth. Malty fruity aroma. Sweet toasted malt with a bit of a berry finish? ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Brick store on tap. Brown with a creamy head. Looks thicker than it tastes. Some elements of a nice brown ale, caramel and toffee flavors, but a different finish. A spicey finish.
