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.

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 Iíve had from Pyramid.

The smell is honey and some kinda nut.. Couldnt pin point it. Dark dark beer, slight red hue.... The taste is smooth then the bitterness hits at the end.. not too bitter.. very nice. I wish the apricot by this co had the same alc...

Of all the Pyramid beers Iíve had, this is my favorite. Thereís a lot going on here, but itís all good.

Dark as night with an average head. A spicy nutmeg-like nose foreshadows the chocolate nutty, almost Porter-like flavors. Good Christmas-type beer if youíre into that.

A pretty solid beer. Weak head, aroma of brown sugar. A rather full malty taste along with sweet hops and fruity notes. Alcohol came out as it warmed.

Prostman (1077) - Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 13, 2002
I tried this beer after sharing a í95 vintage of Samichlaus so my tastes were a little overwhelmed. From what I could decifer, it is a decent winter beer that should be tried by anyone who is a fan of brown ales.

Think barley wine light, and then youíve probably got a good idea of what to expect. Clear dk brown red, with minimal tan head. Aroma is strong caramel malty at first, but a noticeable earthy hoppiness shows up as it warms. Perhaps the slightest hint of seasonal spices? Flavor is malty sweet & caramel at the start. Then, toward the back of the mouth, pine hop bitterness takes over and takes you through the swallow. Fairly rich bodied.

Nicely thick. Hoppy and warming. Similar to but not quite as good as Hiburnation ale.
