Murky brown pour. Earthy with light hops. Burnt malts. Wintry I guess but not great. Just ok ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

kidmartinek (3554) - austin, Texas, USA - OCT 22, 2012
Yeah good. Mile malty and spicy aroma. Clear amber color with a nice head. This beer is just what it says it is... a winter IPA. Its hoppy and has a spicy note for the cold season but the dominant flavor is the malty backbone. The mouthfeel is unfortunately overly creamy. Nontheless I like this beer. Its flavorful and sessionable.

~Sweet bready malt aroma, some fruitiness, but not sure what, maybe raisin. Kind of candy like. Floral hop character. ~Pours very clear amberish brown color with quickly disappearing head ~Bready malty flavor with light toastiness, some sweetness, earthy hop. ~Light medium bodied, with medium low CO2, some tongue numbing, toasty bready finish. ~Not too bad. I could drink a few of these, but wouldn’t buy again.

jamesie1857 (1347) - Sheffield, South Yorkshire, ENGLAND - OCT 13, 2012
335ml bottle - another of those who saw the bottles and thought "I’ll give that a go..." Pours a ruby red brown, about half a finger of white head, plenty of malt in the nose. Not a bad start. Felt like an ESB at first rather than an IPA. A tiiny first taste lets it down big style, with a funky after taste. Very average.

OxfordBeer (16) - Dearborn, Michigan, USA - OCT 11, 2012
pours a clear copper with low to medium carbonation, barely off-white head including some larger bubbles. Overall not an amazing appearance. Nose is a sweet malt with some toffee and hazelnut notes; not getting the british hop aromas I was expecting. Tasting it brought out more toffee and hazelnut than anything else. Mouthfeel is medium to full bodied but bland with no noticable carbonation. Crisp dry finish but nothing special. Overall nothing out of the ordinary or worth buying again, too similar to their brown ale and red ale.

rauchbier (3596) - Isle Of Beer, Lincolnshire, ENGLAND - OCT 9, 2012
Bottle from Morrisons Scunthorpe. Bronze coloured with a thin sheen of off white bubbles and a gentle condition. Sweet caramel and slightly burnt toffee in the nose with a hint of peppery hops. Disappointingly thin in the mouth with a low caramel note half-heartedly joining a muted hop bitterness, slightly fruity in the finish but otherwise quite forgetable

HogTownHarry (6063) - Toronto (Harbourfront), Ontario, CANADA - SEP 10, 2012
September 30, 2011 with blankboy, garthicus, gregclow, jerc and mabel. Bright oily-looking light amber with a small diminishing off-white head. Aroma is sort of harsh, bit of fruit, bit of papery floral bitterness. Pretty much no taste, a hint of harshness - average everything and quick, a little ugliness in the aftertaste - ehhh mehh and fehhhh.

nick76 (4180) - Tampa, Florida, USA - JUL 3, 2012
The aroma has mushrooms, grassy hops, and sweet malt. The appearance is amber with a medium head. The taste is like the aroma with a metallic element. The palate is average. Overall not great.
