Mahogony pour with thick tan head. Malty aroma with a hint of spices. Tastes of caramel malt and a bit of licorice, not too sweet with a slightly sour bitter finish. A little weak on the finish and palate; I expected a little bit more excitement for a winter ale, but not bad.

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!

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...

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.

Nice vanilla and licorice nose, but overwhelming alcohol backbone made it hard for these flavors to come forward. Needs more chewable malt characterisitcs.

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.

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.
