Great winter ale, with coffee and chocolate notes, followed up with slightly burnt bitterness in the finish.

Dahrk ruby color with no real head to speak of. Malty aroma without much else. Thick yet watery consistency. Taste of nuts and hints of choc. & spicy hops. A finish that tries really hard to be bitter enough. Ugly pug is better. C-

Bottle. Pours deep, dark amber with nice off white head. Lacing is pretty good. Nice spicey aromas, hint of sweetness and lots of roast, chocolate, and whiskey notes. Best brew Iíve had from Rahr.

Decent for Rahr, but not worth trading for. Smooth sweetish taste, that comes close to a strong dark. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bella68 (42) - Alabama, USA - FEB 4, 2009
Poured a dark brownish-red color with off white head. Flavor is kinda sweet with a few hints of dark fruits. Aroma not as itense as I would like. Lots of carbonation.

Pours a dull yet still clear brown with a thick frothy khaki head. Aroma is light, some toasty malt. Taste is smooth, roasty malt thatís not at all spicy. Dark caramelized flavors, semi-sweet brown malt with some nutty brown sugar but the overall effect is not overly sweet at all. Very, very faint trace of hops in the middle, hints of smoke, maybe some dry dark cocoa. Finish is clean and slightly bitter, no trace of alcohol. Mouthfeel is light to medium, almost lager-like, which exposes the brewerís well-known preference for lagers. Exists somewhere between a clean brown ale and an old ale. Bottles are better than keg; I could drink this all year round.

Great beer. The only thing I wish for this beer is that it had more aromatic malt. It is perfect for a cold night. Great beer overall.

When itís poured it looks like a stout, something like guiness. The head isnít as thick though. Very smooth and tastes very well. You can tell it has been aged in bourbon barrels with the mild after taste. It does not have an over powering alcohol taste at all. Very good beer.

Good dark ale on a cold day. Not an everyday drink. Tasted better once the ale set and warmed up a little. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Pours dark brown with a small tan head with allows for a very savory aroma. Best drunk from a glass with a large mouth for better enjoyment of this aleís sweet, malty fragrance. It tastes great and will be my go to winter seasonal in the future.
