A tan head fades quickly above a body I can only peg as "reddish-brown". I find a mixture of both pale and dark malts in the aroma (which I find intrguing) along with a lemony/floral hoppiness. Flavor finds a "candy bar of maltiness" which includes chocolate, caramel and nuts... along with some mild, sour/bitter hops. A little thin in the mouth with a dry finish. A sessionable brew for the ABV.

Cornfield (5497) - Oak Forest, Illinois, USA - JAN 20, 2007
The body is a clear, dark brownish amber and the head consists of a film of bubbles that soon evaporates. Itís got a mild roasted malt aroma with burnt caramel and bitter nuts. Very thin and watery, which makes me surprized by the 8% ABV. The roasted malt continues into the flavor along with a light fruitiness and, finally, a touch of alcohol thatís acompanied by some earthy nuts. I almost like this and would probably drink it again.

Pailhead (4897) - Brownstown, Michigan, USA - JAN 11, 2007
Bottle: Courtesy of bu11zeye via trade. The aroma is very roasty with roasted malt and hints of nuts along with some faint caramel. It pours a transparent brownish-red with a small off-white head that quickly fades. The flavor starts with moderate dark fruits with a light roastiness that lingers throughout. The fruitiness sweetens a tad in the finish along with some light bitterness and faint caramel. There is just a touch of alcohol flavor in the finish, but no real warmth.

Bottle at the brewery
Cloudy dark amber color. Nice aroma, with some malt, roasted malt, caramel, toffee. Good body structure, with a good mix of malt and caramel. Enough bitterness, but it would really need a more aromatic hopping. Anyway, the most interesting here.

JJClark (551) - Roscoe, Illinois, USA - JAN 10, 2007
Bottle from trade with the_lutheran. Pours a mahogany color with a medium off white head. Aroma of malt, caramel and spices. I detect several different fruits such as apple and raisins. Taste is nutty and semi sweet but nicely balanced out with hop goodness. Finishes with a malty touch. Nice brew!

The bottle pours thick coffee color with ruby highlights and a light tan dissipating head. I get aromas of sweet chocolate and mild hops. Itís got a roasted flavor with a mild bitter finish. Could be a little thicker but itís good. Iíve rated 100! Woohoo!

I had no idea what to expect from this brew, but I was pleasantly surprised! It pours dark brown with a little red throw in for good measure. The aroma is sweet, somewhat candy-like but clean and malty. Not a lot of head in the glass, mostly just a ton of carbonated fizz. The taste is sweet, a little bitter, with hints of ripe apple. The finish is nice, clean, and spicy! I canít complain about this one at all, itís very good! I like this MUCH better than most of the so-called winter ales Iíve tried, and Iím only sorry I bought just one bottle!!
