Dark reddish brown appearance. Fruity red wine aroma with coffee tones. Dryish coffee flavor turning fruity, sherryish half way through. Plenty of sweet cranberry and strawberry. Balances well in the aftertaste with the fruitiness and roasted malt lingering.

SpringsLicker (3141) - Tennessee, USA - FEB 23, 2006
Thanks to Suttree for sharing this one! A light brown, average sized head formed and quickly left only a medium brown beer in the glass. Heavy malt aroma, scented with Tuity Fruity bubblegum and banana and a touchof some vanilla. Full bodied with a sweet flavor profile; the creamy mouthfeel delivers a spicy, smooth brew with just a bit of bitterness on the back side.

omhper (19380) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - FEB 22, 2006
Draught at the brewpub (9%). Clear brownish amber. Fruity toffee aroma with some gingersnaps. Sweet with lots of caramel and molasses as well as dough and red berries. The hop rate is low. A warming beer with a lot going on, but also a bit too sweet and mushy.

Suttree (5144) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - FEB 21, 2006
Reddish Copper, thick foamy head. Big malty, sweet, caramelly aroma. Flavor is pine and some licorace, plus some unidentifable spices - cinnamon, maybe? Even some Juniper? Thanks to acertain for this one!

acertain (249) - Seattle, Washington, USA - FEB 1, 2006
Beautiful deep red amber with nice white head. Aroma of weak hops and alcohol. Taste is slightly sweet, finish slightly bitter. Nothing about this beer stood out for me; it’s completely drinkable, but doesn’t have any trait that makes me want to come back for more.

DavidP (1747) - Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USA - JAN 28, 2006
Bottle. Hazy mahogany-red body, thin white head. Apricot over bran muffin aroma. Glazed dark bran bread flavor with an emphasis on sweet brown sugar. The finish features light floral orange citrus hops and a sprucey hop bitterness. Nice rich mouthfeel, but otherwise an uninspiring beer.

BeerPrince (1701) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JAN 22, 2006
Darker red colour with a light tan head. The aroma is quite hoppy for with some dark caramel and molasses. Sweeter body with a finish of some hops. Nice balance.

BrewDad (4996) - Olympia, Washington, USA - JAN 22, 2006
A great winter warmer. Dark borwn color with a slight hoppy hint this was a nice beer to drink. Great dark malts, hops and aroma from the start to the finish. A strong percentage beer that was a great winter style brew.

OldMrCrow (1829) - Seattle, Washington, USA - DEC 25, 2005
From the bottle.

Pours dark with red hlighlighgts and a modest head. The aroma packs a serious punch of of big spruce hops and blast of well-roasted malt. The flavor is strong and sharp, with the too-common threefold aggression (hops, dark malts, alcohol) of the less impressive PacNW winter ales. No balance here, but rather a set of overly-strong flavors competing with one another and leaving the palate battlegroung as scorched-earth. Bitterness and aggressive malt and sticky-sweet oils all clash with one another.

This one features the worst characteristics of the LaConner brews (particularly, those medicinal hops) with little of the good.

porterdude (170) - Bellingham, Washington, USA - DEC 19, 2005
Bottle. Poured a murky brown color, with a few floaters and a thin off white head. An aroma of oak and vanilla with hints of alcohol hits my nose. On the first sip the alcohol is a bit alarming but as I drink more the hints of vanilla, oak, and sugary molasses comes through. It is in fact a bit rummy as the description says.
