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!

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.

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.

Nice smooth and full beer. It has a great body without being a dark beer. Got this at the end of season and wish i could have had another. My favorite of the pyramid lineup.

UPDATED: OCT 24, 2004 (Draft) Ruby brown with a small tanish head, Malty aroma with a bit of roastyness. Malty with good mouth feel and toffee fruitish flavors coming in. Some good hop bitterness to end. Really quite well done.

Bottle. Pours dark brown with something resembling a small head - it disappeared so quickly I’m not sure it was even there. Smells of malts and prunes with some other sweet fruitiness. Tastes about the same with some sourness and astringency towards the end. Medium-heavy body. Not bad, nothing special.

Nice color, nice nose. Had a molasses hit that got stronger with each sip. Best Christmas beer I drank this year.

A nice rich ale. Good malt and hop flavors. A quickly falling head. Nice color and semi-rich flavor. A good Winter ale.
