3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours a mahogany color with an off white head that leaves great lacing. Smells of roasted malt, caramel, toffee and molasses. Tastes of caramel, toffee, chocolate molassas, toffee and nuts. Mouthfeel is medium and creamy with good carbonation. Overall this is a great tasting winter warmer with a lot of flavor one of the better ones available in the Seattle area.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Deep copper, clear, tan head. Aroma is malty with some toffee and light toast, some spicy hop aroma as well. Flavor: malty balance, more toasty and light chocolate in flavor than aroma, finishes within a little roasty edge and light hop bitterness. Full-bodied, drinkable winter warmer.

It poured a dark color with a tiny white head. The aroma was nutty with some roasted caramel malt. The taste was mildly bitter with caramel malts and burnt toast. An average winter warmer, but nicely done.

4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
A good finger of light tan head. Semi-clear brown colored body.
Smell is rich caramel, toffee, bread and yeast. Great balance.
Taste is malt sweet beginning to middle, then the medium bitterness takes over with a long finish.
Crisper texture, medium body and moderate carbonation.
Enjoyable with great flavor.

12oz screw top bottle. Medium mahogany pour with a thin tan head and lots of carbonation. Malty aroma with sweet and fruity flavors. Kind of boring overall. Not bad but not really that good either. Meh

1.7 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 4/20
Bottle poured into imperial pint. Nice looking beer. Dark amber, caramel-like color, big, frothy khaki head. Aroma is a bit peculiar. Not very malty at all but hints of earthy hops, a touch of brown cinnamon, and a champagne-like scent. Doesnít really fit a winter ale. Taste isnít any better. Way too carbonated, fizzy, and bland upfront. The bubbly intensity seems to overpower much of the flavor. There is a nice malt taste on the end, but thatís about it. I wonder if this particular bottle is off because this is pretty awful...

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Poured from a bottle into a pint glass. Color is a clear amber-brown with a thin off white head. Aroma is of winter spices and malty sweetness. Taste is mostly the aforementioned spices; flavor tends to linger in the mouth. Leaves the palate cleanly but does not seem full bodied as advertised. Typical mass produced winter beer. Not bad but also not amazing.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
It pours a caramel copper without much of a head and leaves no lacing. The aroma is full of dry hops with a touch of a malty undertone. The taste is dominated by the malt flavor upfront but it finishes quite bitter. Thereís a lot going on and the beer nearly pulls it off. The balance just seems to be off by a hair. Still, a nice effort and something worth trying!
