Dark orange-copper color, huge foamy off white head, leaves a nice lace in the glass, malty caremel aroma, medium bodied, watery mouthfeel. It does finish dry and crisp, not bad, drinkable.

who said barleywine,whew maybe I had one to many, but I can still type and this still is not a BW, very malty and a decent winter warmer, spicy, and flavours of caramel,and hops.

Indra (2570) - Overland Park, Kansas, USA - DEC 30, 2002
Aroma is mostly malty, with some dark breadiness and toffee, along with a bit of hop spice and a tiny dash of alcohol. Dark red in color with slight head and lacing. Flavor has some depth, with a blend of lightly toasted, caramelized malt, light fruitiness, a profound and lingering spiciness, and earthy, piney, spicy hop flavors. Finishes malty, nutty and lightly bitter and then dries out leaving the very holiday-oriented spiciness. Body and mouthfeel are medium and the palate is not over carbonated. Actually a pretty decent beer, some subtlety.

bluemeow76 (693) - Lewis Center, Ohio, USA - DEC 30, 2002
Dark amber and brown pour with a thin head and decent lacing. A good mix of spices and fruitiness. Definitely an easy drink.

Dogbrick (7253) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - DEC 29, 2002
2002 Bottle: This is a decent enough seasonal. Pours a dark brown color with a medium thin off-white head that lasted almost the entire glass. Minimal lacing. Aroma of malt, nutmeg (?) and brown sugar. Flavor is rich and strong in alcohol and malt flavors although the ABV really isn’t that high. Finish is rather sweet and nutty. Of the seasonals I have tried this year, it is better than average.

bubslang (438) - Kentwood, Michigan, USA - DEC 27, 2002
Poured a beautiful dark garnet color with a medium sized head, mild spice aroma, good malty taste with some spice midway, and a pleasant bitter hop finish

bbooth (115) - Gilbert, Arizona, USA - DEC 27, 2002
Nice Seasonal. Brown w/ very small tan head. Nose sweet with some fruity spice notes. Nice malty smooth character to this beer. Finish was a little lacking though. Alcohol not very noticable (nicely masked).

jsquire (3345) - St. Marys, Ohio, USA - DEC 25, 2002
RE-rate 2002 bottle. Similar to last years rating but I taste stronger alcohal sweetness with a dark plum, raisin flavor. I bumped the score up a little. 3-19-02-Nice, dark head but not much nose. Maybe it was too cold. The beer was crisp with and nice hop/malt balance. I tasted a subtle spiceyness, and it makes a good winter warmer, but not the best of the winter seasonals.

Head went flat very quick, but looks good in the glass. Decent roasted flavor that cleans off your palate quick. One of Pyramids better brews.

Tom Servo (424) - Arlington, Virginia, USA - DEC 20, 2002
Has a fairly sticky feel to it, like honey or something. Very full body, though the flavor is almost too much like a dark beer. Like a different kind of beer trying to be a stout. Not bad, especially for the first I’ve had from Pyramid.
