This is a well executed version of this style. Malty and strong, with nice background hoppiness, with an attractively dry finish. This is a much better execution of this style than say Summitís winter, which I find too sweet in the finish.

I look forward to seeing this every year. Rich, malty, hoppy and a good kick to it. Cheers!

A true winter warmer, dark amber color from raosted malts also lend to the rich malty flavor, fruit/floral hop flavor and enough kick to keep you warm on the coldest day on the slopes!

Of the more widely available winterbrews, this is in my top 5. Its the way a winterbrew should be: nice deep malts, spices galore, subtle hops, complex in flavors. Solid.

Wonderful dark, spicy aroma and flavor, the prototypical NW Christmas ale. This is good stuff.

obxdude10 (2046) - Pottstown, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 21, 2002
Very rich, nice balance, spicy aroma & aftertaste, tasted like a little cinnamon was thrown in, kind of nutty as well, good head, pretty decent seasonal

JMerritt (1813) - Macomb, Illinois, USA - APR 20, 2002
Black-cherry color with a medium khaki head with decent lacing. Aroma is wonderful: cinnamon and nutmeg is the most prevalent. Initial taste has a hop burst that mellows with burnt chocolate. Medium carbonation. Happy 15th Anniversary Pyramid!
