On tap at Hudsonís in Plover, WI. Pours a clear, deep amber with long-lasting meringue head. Good lacing. Aroma is moderately nutty & spicy. First taste is nutty maltiness with a dash of vanilla. Some fruitiness follows with a surprising spiciness in the finish. Medium mouthfeel but excellent carbonation from a tapper. Never got to try it from a bottle but would definitely ask for it again on tap. Very good.

Rated on 01-23-2013 (Bottle) This beer forms a medium sized semi-fizzy beige head with a short retention, copper transparent body and no lacing. The aroma is caramel malt, hint of banana and spicy. The flavor is caramel malt, sweet, spicy, and light hops. The mouthfeel is smooth and this beer is light-medium bodied. This is a quaffable session beer that I would drink again,

Big and black beauty with nice head, shouldah been a 5. Like a black ipa on the palate. Perhaps a bit difficult to the unexpected. Yes, wew, dark beer fer sure. When i saw winter I thunk spicey but it is not; more like dark roasted strong beer. Yes, this must be black IPA, not strong ale, but Iím not doubting its strong, heheh. Thick medicinal finish. Not typical of the friendly point brand beers Iíve had in the past. Yes, either black ipa or baltic porter.

This was OK and improved as it warmed up a bit. Mild malty aroma.
It had a nice mohagony color with a nice foamy head. Average weighted palate with matching carbonation. A pretty malty beer with some nutty flavors and very minor hops presence. It had the English character of subtlety. A little above average.
