Dogbrick (10692) - 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 isnít that high. Finish is rather sweet and nutty. Of the seasonals I have tried this year, it is better than average.

crossovert (10647) - Illinois, USA - MAR 14, 2011
Metallic, with surprising bitterness. IT is a deep red color and has a decenty thick mouthfeel.

Sammy (10555) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 31, 2009
Nice malty mixture, its also in the aroma of a darkish and big off-white head drink with cola and spice.Very drinkable this one, one of the best I have had from the brewery.

hopscotch (10522) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - OCT 7, 2002
Itís been over a year since I tried this beer. I really enjoyed it, but the commercial deScription will have to do. If you like other winter warmers / American strong ales that i have rated highly, this one wonít dissapoint you.

KimJohansen (10407) - Frederiksberg C, DENMARK - JUN 15, 2010
Clear deep amber with medium beige head. Sweet aroma with roasted malt, caramel, dark overripe fruits and hints of hops. Hoppy flavour with roasted malt, caramel, dark overripe fruits and figs. Finished hoppy.

adnielsen (10360) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - OCT 23, 2010
Tasted from a 12 oz. bottle purchased in Fort Collins, Colorado. Pours a deep red-brown body with a light cream-brown head. Nutty-alcoholic aroma and dark malty, nutty, alcoholic flavor. Not the best job of covering the alcohol flavor.

DrSilverworm (9672) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - JAN 31, 2013
12oz bottle. Enjoy by 3/11/13. Darker hazy brown / red color. Huge pillowy khaki fills the glass and requires a 2-part pour. Fades, but a good thin layer remains. Cinnamon spice and baked apple / pear skin nose. Medium - plus body. Smooth, light / medium soft carbonation. Light spicy bite in the finish. Spice, and toasty english malt taste. Some musty bruised fruit. Light metallic. Moderate bitter, light spice bite... Not awful, but not very pleasant. Not my kind of English Strong Ale, nor my kind of winter ale.

DocLock (9231) - Lower Pottsgrove, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 6, 2005
Dark brown (no ruby) pour, with good lacing. Aroma of spices (cinnamon, nutmeg), malt, some hops. Tastes spicy, with malt, nutmeg, brown sugar, and cognac at the finish. Somewhat dense, firm palate.

BVery (9162) - Plymouth, Minnesota, USA - NOV 9, 2012
Bottle. Really solid winter warmer - super easy drinking and flavorful, but not a palate challenger. Malty, mild dark fruit, and just a hint of spice. Good stuff.

No consistency here :(
