shanepardue (110) - Raytown, Missouri, USA - DEC 29, 2007
Dark brown, bitter to the core and delicious. This one hits hard on the bitter side and ends with a alcohol aftertaste. Tastes very good!

Excellent dark red amber when poured, nice frothy white head. Strong hints of fruit with a little bit of coffee taste near the end. Alcohol is quite apparent during the aftertaste. Aroma is that of fruit giving way to coffee. Not bad overall, but not quite what I had expected. A little disappointed with this one. Expected more.

troysworktable (109) - Washington, USA - JAN 27, 2007
12 ounce bottle. Pour leaves a dark brown ale with a half-inch tan head. The aroma is rich caramel, slight chocolate, mild spices. Pseudo-chocolate flavor on initial draught is almost instaneously replaced with a slightly bitter "wet wood bark" flavor. The "wet wood bark" is not as overpowering as Snow Plow, but is not altogether pleasant, either. Slight disconnect between the aroma and the flavor. If the flavor were just slightly adjusted this might be somewhat good. The flavor did increase slightly over the course of my meal, so perhaps this was a bad bottle...

Nice holiday beer. Fruity and malty with a nice balance. Spices are noticeable.

badinplaid (106) - USA - NOV 28, 2007
I like this winter brew. I would rate it just ahead of the middle of the pack but not the pick of the litter for 2007. Deep rich color...fluffy head...good balance of spices to warm you on a cool evening.

HoppedHead (106) - seattle, Washington, USA - JUN 27, 2002
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!

burcusabrews (106) - St. Louis Park, Minnesota, USA - NOV 9, 2004
2004 vintage. Nice beer, Big english hop flavor balanced (although not perfectly) with some roasted malts. Nice to drink, but not a real thinker beer.

GTCruiser01 (105) - California, USA - MAR 22, 2012
Deep reddish brown ale with a tan head. Aroma of caramel, molasses, spice, and mild herbal hops. Taste is a little sweet with a nice kick of hops and a nice finish.
