Draft after a day of skiing. Pours deep brown with a beige head. Lightly roasted malts, bread, light holiday spices, and a medium fruity sweetness. Good stuff.

Bottle. Solid sweet malty base balanced with mild bitterness throughout. Good brew but I wish it had a bit more of the ’Winter Warmer’ quality to it.

Dark Hazy Brown. The smell gives the impression of a sweet caramelized malts, figs, barley and hops. The flavor does have that but it isn’t as strong as the smell, which is a bit disappointing. It is however a drinkable, if not, fairly good beer.

Yeasty vanilla and a bit of choc. Maybe a lil bit of citrus as well. Its a deep red mostly clear and a white head. Tastes sweet and yeasty much like a trappist or an abbey. I can taste alcohol in the aftertaste and a very sweet and malty taste. Its a medium heavy body. Overall not a bad brew

Rich mahogany color. Light tan head with lacing. Crystal malt aroma. A little bit if spice and euro/earthy hops as well. Flavor is very British. Fuggles and/or EK Golding hops. A bit of toasty breadiness to the flavor. A mild fruity finish. I get apples in the finish.

Pours a dark amber with a light head. Aroma is hoppier than I’d imagine but not overwhelmingly so. Flavor also has a good hops presence with a decent malty-sweet backbone. Solid winter ale.

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.
