2012 Vintage
Tasted on 4/1/14 from a capped 12oz bottle sent as an extra in a trade. Pours almost completely opaque dark ruby with a thin beige head that quickly disappears. The nose is really dominated by sweet dried fruit, raisin, with plenty of toffee and caramel. The flavor is cola sweet with the same dried fruit, a combination of dark date and raisin, with red cherry and berry, with the same caramel on the back. The body is full with above average, fizzy carbonation and a long caramel and dried fruit finish.

This one poured a murky brown color with a beige head. Aroma was of caramel, dark fruits, and spices, similar to a fruitcake. Flavor was more of the fruity side, very sweet, a lot like medicinal cherry cough syrup. Not too good.

12 ounce bottle into signature tulip glass, 2012 winter Solstice bottling. Pours hazy deep ruby brown color with a small foamy off white head with decent retention, that reduces to a thin lace that lingers. Slight spotty lacing clings on the glass. Aromas of big raspberry, cherry, cranberry, raisin, orange peel, cinnamon, nutmeg, clove, spice cake, brown sugar, and licorice. Fantastic aromas with great balance and complexity of fruit notes with malt and moderate spices. Taste of raspberry, raisin, cherry, cinnamon, nutmeg, orange peel, spice cake, brown sugar, clove, and licorice. Lingering notes of dark fruits, brown sugar, spice cake, cinnamon, nutmeg, and licorice on the finish for a good bit. Very nice balance and complexity of fruit flavors with big malt sweetness and moderate spices; no cloying sweetness after the finish surprisingly. Light-medium carbonation and fairly full bodied; with a slick and syrupy mouthfeel that is good. Alcohol is well hidden with only a small warming noticed after the finish. Overall this is an excellent and unique winter warmer style. Big robustness and nice balance of fruity, malt, and spice flavors; and quite smooth to sip on. A very enjoyable offering.

Bottle received via trade with FlandersNed. Pours clear tawny with a small, bubbly off-white head, short retention with spare to no lacing. Aroma is raspberry dominant with fig and raisins with nuts and toast malt. Flavor is lightly tart dried fruits, toast and nutty malt with a dry finish. Medium body and carbonation.

Thanks to blutt59 for sharing this bottle. The beer pours a reddish-brown color with an off-white head. The aroma is very heavy on the cherries. The flavor is similar with a few additions. There is still a good bit of cherry character, but I also get some nice maple, oak and vanilla notes. Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation.

Bottle received from Ken, thanks for picking me up bottles man! Pours a completely opaque/murky reddish brown in color with very little head on the pour. Nose is pretty medicinal, smells a lot like berry, cherry cough syrup in particular. Flavor is pretty one dimensional berry as well. It is reminiscent of a fruit cake, there is some bready/doughiness to it. Mouthfeel is light and a little syrupy, not much in terms of carbonation, a moderate finish, and only slightly boozy. Not bad, not great, decent middle of the road beer. Happy I got to try it.

Bottle to snifter (shared with the wife; thanks mikem409). Looks good; an almost completely opaque reddish-brown with thin off-white lacing. Smells of malt and fruitcake. Tastes like it smells with a nice, clean finish. Drinks easier than 9% too. My wife and I both enjoyed this one (and I don’t even like fruitcake).
