JahNoth (1039) - Rochester, New York, USA - DEC 4, 2009
Kind of fruity aroma with a pinch of smoke. Deep red chestnut in color, fairly clear with some bubbles. Very little head. Toasty caramel flavor is off the charts! Nice herbal hop balance makes me come back for more. Very quaffable with nary a hint of alcohol. A real winner!

ditmier (1508) - Boise, Idaho, USA - NOV 30, 2009
2009 Bottle - Pours clear and slightly thick dk brown with a small off white head...aroma is dark fruit and malt, roasted nuts and yeast...flavour is sweet caramel and plums, leading into dark burnt sugar bitterness and a rough grain grit...fun balance between sweet and savory makes this a fun winter warmer...

highibus (729) - Vail, Arizona, USA - NOV 27, 2009
pours deep ruby brown with lasting white head. nice aroma of chestnut and biscuit malt. as i take a sip it is somewhat flat on the flavor. some hints of sweet dark fruit but it quickly cuts out. no finish at all. not bad but not a fav winter.

HungTuna (10) - Seattle, Washington, USA - NOV 27, 2009
Nice vanilla and licorice nose, but overwhelming alcohol backbone made it hard for these flavors to come forward. Needs more chewable malt characterisitcs.

killjoy966 (677) - Washington, USA - NOV 20, 2009
Roasty, toasty malty backbone. Nice winter warmer with a lot of body. A little caramelly, a little hoppy. Really fizzy on the tongue. Pretty solid, though I prefer their IPAs.

TLNash886 (228) - Idaho, USA - NOV 19, 2009
Pours mahogany into a pint glass (unfortunately, I have yet to find an alt). Abundant but dissipating head. Slight hop presence on the nose, little malty sweetness, spices, apple. Man, oh man is this beer an oddball. No detectable hops despite the aroma, only mild malty sweetness. The prevailing taste is spiced apples. Could really use some extra sweetness to balance out the spice. Soft carbonation, fairly drinkable. Doesn’t seem to sit well on the stomach; bit too watery for the slightly detectable alcohol presence. This would be great if it was richer and sweeter. Not something to drink much of. Perhaps relative, but this brew doesn’t make me feel well at all. Almost nothing doesn’t sit well in my gut. Disappointing end.

raphael (883) - Portland, Oregon, USA - JUL 18, 2009
Caramel, wheat toast, nutmeg (? some spice), a mlid mix of citrus and pine hops. Almost brown, hazy, thin of white head. Light and crisp in the mouth (sharp contrast to the characteristically murky Jubel, Christmas in July at Micky Finn’s. (Black Butte XXI was there yesterday; Terminal Gravity Festivale waiting for the next open tap). Take a schwarzbier, add spice, more hops than German, clean finish.

BrewDad (4996) - Olympia, Washington, USA - APR 10, 2009
Pint – Eastside Club Tavern – Olympia, WA
Aroma: Malty with a light hops aroma. Some spices where getting through.
Appearance: Amber in color, Hazy with a thin head.
Flavor: This had a very odd flavor for being a Alt this should have had more flavor.
Palate: Dry finish, with a Odd Mouthfeel.
Overall: I was not right with this beer it had something wrong either it was a bad keg or mixed and had the wrong stuff in it. I think it was a mixed keg of two beers.
