Sampled on 12/24/2010. This American Strong Ale/Altbier pours a medium brown color from a 22oz bottle. Medium sized white foamy head. The aroma is malty, fruity and sweet. A medium bodied American Strong Ale. Malts are caramel, fruity, sweet and a touch bready. The hops are earthy and herbal. Nice carbonation. There is a touch of some holiday spices perhaps. A nice Winter Warmer. Mouthfeel is full. Finish is clean and smooth. Aftertaste is slightly sweet.

22 oz bottle. Pours dark brown with ruby highlights. Frothy head, lots of lacing. Aroma is sweet. Flavor is mainly dark malts, but the slight bitterness rounds off this beer nicely. Alcohol is well hidden and a very easy, maybe to easy, to drink. Excellent beer.

22 oz. bottle- Pours dark brown with red highlights with an off white head and exceptional lacework, aroma is caramel malts. The flavor is toasted malts with a nutty flavor and a somewhat bitter aftertaste. This beer is very smooth, but not overbearing, I could probably drink it all night.

Bottle. Poured a red-brown with a tan head that settled to a ring. Light aromas of fruit and malt. The flavor found dark fruits, malt, and light spices. Light to medium body.

22oz bottle poured into a tulip glass. No freshness info. This bottle has been in my fridge for a month or so and I am just now getting to it. Pours a lovely light brown color with an inch of lumpy foam. Good lacing. Sweet malt on the nose with slight roasted notes and an herbal bitter quality. Hints of dark chocolate. Fairly full bodied with a nice, round mouthfeel. Good carbonation. Good drinkability for 7.2abv. The nutty taste of the roasted malt prevails all the way through to the finish. The bitterness that comes from the hops doesn’t really complement the rest of the flavor profile. I don’t think the style needs this much hop bitterness. They stayed true to the style but I feel like they upped the hops along with the alcohol and the result is too bitter. Not bad though. Something different but nothing great.

Rusty in color, sleighr had a flat taste; mellow body flavor. Though it was okay, I expected a lot more from this winter beer.

Medium amber color with a tan head that dissipates but stays around for the ride. Creamy texture followed by a slightly astringent huskiness that creates a great balance. There’s a definite dark roasted, slightly charcoaly flavor in the background and in the aftertaste that really clinches the overall flavor. There’s flavoring hops mixed in there to balance out the light sweetness, but this is definitely a malt driven beer. Great holiday beer!

My first rating for this brewer. 22 oz. bottle. Pours a mostly clear deep amber brown with a moderate off-white head that lasted through the first quarter of the glass and left excellent lace. Very pleasant aroma that is very malty with a bit of pine resin and graham crackers. The flavor is more one-dimensional than the aroma suggests with malt and some mild roast followed by some mild-moderate hops bitterness. Overall, a very enjoyable beer.

22 ounce bottle purchased at BevMo in Natomas, CA. Aroma is a bit metallic with some graininess, cereal malts, and scantly floral hops. Some sweetness is also detected. This is pretty interesting. Transparent amber body with a large, frothy off-white head. Nice lacing. Very attractive. Very toasted start, followed by a little malty sweetness. More toasted hints and some burnt notes come through in the middle. This finishes with some grassy, metallic, sharp, earthy hop bitterness. I’m digging this! (Even though it’s little too bitter for the style)
