This is a pretty good winter warmer. Dark roasted malts, little sweetness, signature Ninkasi hop bite at the finish.

mt_glass (5) - Montana, USA - FEB 7, 2014 does not count
Sweet caramel malt aroma with hints of dried dark fruits. Pours a clear dark brown that just barely lets light though with a finger of off white head. Tasty crisp beer with minimal sweetness and heavy roast malt and finishes with a lingering hop bitternesss. Medium body and lively on the tongue. Overall, a good beer that’s perfect for cold nights. I seem to recall really liking the Fall ’13 version of this beer. This years batch (F’13) seems a bit different.

JStax (2601) - Devola/Marietta, Ohio, USA - FEB 1, 2014
Bottle shared. Pours a darker amber color with a beige head of foam. The aroma has some woody notes, oats, spice, toffee, and some dark molasses type characteristics. Taste is on the spicy sweet side. Medium body and a somewhat drying finish. Medium to lower carbonation.

GIJOE (468) - Monterey, California, USA - JAN 29, 2014
Pours a very deep, dark red with a fine, foamy white head that stays a while; sticky lacing. Nose is malty with notes of roasted grain. Taste is moderately bitter. Full body, lively carbonation. Good brew. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

hockeybeerguy (893) - Juneau, Alaska, USA - JAN 26, 2014
Reviewed from notes. Consumed 11/16/13. The appearance is a fairly dark copper/brown colored body with a somewhat thin less than a finger’s worth of head that dies practically within thirty seconds and leaves a decent amount of sticky lacing that eventually slides into the body. The smell has a somewhat rich dark malty nuttiness, there seems to be some spice that I can’t really tell what it is, just a sort of spiciness The taste is a mostly malty sweet, the spice from the aroma comes back to balance it a bit, an "altbier-like" malty aftertaste, somewhat dry finish. The palate is about a medium, somewhat sessionable, carbonation is good for the style and for me as its just not harsh or smooth, just right on. Overall, good altbier for the most part, that I think I would come back to, unsure if I’d actually buy it again, but just overall good

thegreenrooster (3081) - St.louis, Missouri, USA - JAN 22, 2014
Pour is a dark red with a large tan head. Aroma is a nice dark malt with some toffee and a strong cherry. Flavor is sugary and dark malts with some nuttiness. Finish has more brown sugar with a bit of dark fruit. I don’t really get much in the way of hops but from this brewer I’m sure their in there. This is a decent beer for winter warming. Plenty malty and chewy.

joeneugs (2932) - Livermore, California, USA - JAN 17, 2014
12 oz. bottle. It pours a very ruddy dark brown/orange color with a small head. The aroma is rather sweet with cherry and plum with a touch of all sorts. The flavor is pretty nice with some dark fruity notes and intense menthol/earthy bitterness that reminds me of Northern Brewer hops. Pretty sweet too with a touch of burnt sugar. The body is medium and carbonation is spot on. This is kind of the perfect winter seasonal. Very satisfying.

IrishBoy (3751) - Bakersfield, California, USA - JAN 1, 2014
12 oz six pack a gift from Enniskillen and Kiapepito (bottles decorated as reindeer) . Nose is sweet malty caramel, hints of bubblegum and floral, with a bit of roasty nuts. Cherry brown with a medium, heavy lacing beige head. Flavor is bitter up front with a tobacco-like note, and some background caramel/toffee, all the while the bubblegum hitting your olfactory sensors.
