Our winter ale is made from a blend of pale and crystal malts, roasted barley and Belgian aromatic malts. Cooler fermentation and a longer aging time adds further complexity to this Old Ale style.

bhensonb (14094) - Woodland, California, USA - JAN 15, 2010
Bottle from Malt & Vine. Pours near ruby, more brown, with a slight off-white head. Lots of resin and caramel for aroma. Full bodied with mild carbonation. Flavors of mildly roasted caramel and some floral/fruity hop. Resin? This is very tasty. Very smooth. Quite a good drink.

mabel (8640) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 31, 2008
[1712-20080917] 22floz bottle. Fruity hops and some light apple skins aroma. Hazy, dark orange brown body with a long-lasting foamy light tan head. Citrus tangerine juice flavour has a mild floral tang finish. Medium body. Mild oldness but no proof of date.
<i>Overheard: "There’s no proof [of the date] except for that chunk at the bottom." "Mmm, chunky."</i>

GregClow (3194) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 7, 2008
Bottle shared with blankboy, HogTownHarry, jerc & mabel - courtesy of blankboy. Copper-amber with a small off-white head. Aroma of resiny hops, spice, caramel, orange zest, grapefruit - nice! Medium bodied. Flavour is quite sharp, with notes of sour citrus and grapefruit pith overpowering what seem to be some nice toffee & dark sugar notes from the malt. Seems a bit off-kilter to me - as blankboy notes, it could’ve been an old bottle.

blankboy (7227) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - SEP 24, 2008
UPDATED: OCT 19, 2008 My bottle (22oz) shared with HogTownHarry, GregClow, jerc & mabel -- courtesy of ’Summer Secret Santa 2008’. Pours a slightly hazy orange-amber with some bubbles and a large lasting foamy off-white head. Nice spicy malty aroma along with some sweetness and citrus fruit. Flavour’s not as good (it may be a touch past it’s due date but it’s hard to tell as there’s no date anywhere on the bottle), there’s a touch of sourness to it along with citrus fruit, bready malt and spices. Average bodied. Not bad, I thought it was O.K. -- I’d love to try a fresh bottle though.

jercraigs (9849) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - SEP 23, 2008
2008-09-17. Hazy dark amber body with a larger long lasting beige head and lacing. Nice citrusy aroma with awesome fresh smelling oranges and tangerines (8+) have me rather excited to taste it, only to be let down. Odd flavour at first. Tart-bitter hops character, an odd tangy with a kiss of alcohol in the finish. Brief highlights echo the citrus of the aroma but they are disappointingly intermittent. Average palate on the thin side. Odd, has its moments. Numbers came out high because I liked the aroma, but I probably would have put this a touch lower overall. <i>Bottle shared by Blankboy</i>
