2010 22 oz bottle from the brewery. Pours dark reddish amber with thick white head. Aroma is aged oaky malts with faint floral sweetness. Taste is big malty body balanced with honey sweetness and bitter pine and grapefruit hop notes. Strong, aged winter beer. Not extreme, but well balanced.

Poured from a bottle. Pours a cloudy brown with an orange hue. Smell starts with dark fruits, maybe some fig or dates, followed by a bit of vanilla and some smokiness. Flavors start with sweet malts, some honey, then drift in a smokier direction with nuttiness and some spice on the end. Feel is medium with a little carbonation. Overall a nice winter warmer, would be nice to have sitting next to a fire.

DYCSoccer17 (3590) - Woodland, California, USA - MAR 22, 2015
14 ounce on tap at Sharps Roasthouse near Seatac. The aroma is a little metallic with light caramel and toffee hints. Mildly hazy amber body with a strong yellowish head present. Starts with just a sweet barrage of malts. I get a lot of caramel malts primarily with a little nuttiness behind. Fairly sweet throughout. Easy drinking, and alcohol is well hidden.

Poured from a 12 oz bottle into a beer can glass on 12.02.14. A: Dark fruit, raisin, and cherry. It’s sweet smelling. A: Some fizz for a head. Opaque purple/dark red body. T: Raisin and fig newton dominate. Cherry, allspice, a tiny bitter sting on the back end, and a slight woodiness are subtle. P: Crisp with a bubbly finish. It’s refreshing and surprisingly lighter than other winter warmers. O: This has a mulled cider quality. The spices take the edge off the sweetness, so it’s balanced. This is a favorite.

On tap at the Porterhouse, pours a clear amber with a small beige head. Aroma brings out christmas spices and light bready malt. Flavour brings out light Christmas spices, caramel, and bready malt. Well-balanced and cohesive. A nice Christmas ale.
