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 (3417) - 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 (3872) - 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.

Lagerboy (1296) - British Columbia, CANADA - JAN 1, 2014
Bomber. Clear deep dark copper, solid foamy tan head slowly settles and lasts. Nutty medium roasted malt aroma. Bitter medium-dark roast flavor, sweet caramel and nuts. Soft carbonation, medium bodied, moderately hopped. Finish is long and bitter. NFL (Not For Lagerboys)

Salmoniform (955) - Sweet Home, Oregon, USA - DEC 31, 2013
Poured from tap to glass. Deep red hue with creamy off white head. Aroma is floral, sugar, slight chocolate, caramel, yeast esters, roasted malt. Mouthfeel is nice with a medium light body and great carbonation. Taste is sweet throughout with a nice hop bitterness in the finish. Overall, this is a fantastic brew with a very clean malty offering and floal hoppiness.

Gerbeer (1949) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - DEC 28, 2013
650 ml bottle. Pours a dark mahogany with light head. Not much of a nose. Light aromas of red fruits, candy, and toasted malts. Flavors of malts, fruit and bitter hops. But nothing special.
