Winterland is deep brown to black with amber highlights. The massive brown head deposits large sheets of lace right down to the very last sip. The dark malt and heavy dark chocolate aroma mixed with a slight juniper scent, give Winterland a sort of chocolate covered berry aroma. The rich roasted malt flavor makes itís appearance first, followed by a dark bitter chocolate flavor. Winterland is reminiscent of a porter or stout with a surprising juniper berry finish.

Smells sweet and chocolatey, has a nice tan head. Taste is mostly roasted coffee with moderate hops. Though there is an underlying hint of tart that must come from the juniper berries, though it blends un with the hops. It might be more pronounced if let to warm. Smooth and drinkable. I enjoyed it while playing skyrim, the two went well together.

Bottle at the beach. Pretty decent porter overall with an interesting subtle juniper finish. Pours dark brown/black with crazy fluffy head- had to use two glasses. Lacing lasts all the way through. All the right roasty/ smoky/ nutty/ cocoa porter notes with lasting bitterness in finish. Somewhat heavy on the charred flavor. Medium to heavy mouthfeel. Alcohol not overwhelming. Better than expected.

Pours a dark brown with plenty of rich tan head. Coffee, roasted malt, and a little raw cocoa bean on the nose; follows onto the palate. Finishes with a roasty char malt note.

Poured from a 12oz bottle into a tulip glass. Brew smells funky, malty (naturally), and a tinge sour. Beer is opaque black in color with a small, but rich, tan head. Initial taste is sour and a little spicy. The thick malt lays in at the middle of the sip, and the finish is quite bitter. Mouthfeel has a little carbonation bite at the attack, but the rest is pure richness and creaminess. Overall, I donít dislike this beer. Itís an interesting drink, but doesnít seem well balanced. The array of flavors work against each other rather than working in harmony. "Never turn your back on your beer."

The aroma is burnt malt and coffee with a hint of molasses. The taste is like the aroma and very dark and bitter. The palate is thick. Overall one the strongest thickest porters I have had and yet not overly alcoholic. This is an Imperial porter!

pours black with a smallish brown head. Aroma is malt and non-descript fruit. The taste is very interesting and complex. Slight chocolate, but then floral or fruity. A hint of coffee but then some slight citrus notes as well. Bittersweet on the finish. Difficult to describe, but tasty. Good beer!

A beer brewed in Green Bay is never going to taste bad. I just kind of popped this one without looking at what it was. I figured it would be a spiced winter ale but clearly it was much darker. Good dark winter session beer. I would be able to identify the juniper berry if I knew what the hell a juniper berry tasted like.

Bottle in fl. Aroma is best part. Faint chattel choco-coffee. Flavor is bad. Coffee with rusty poop. Lingers. Too bad
