I’d like an ABV check on this one...it is virtually invisible, leading me to think it might be incorrectly derived. Very light- bodied brew with an emphasis on the malts and less so on the "holiday" spicing...thank goodness. Pretty refreshing malt bomb with some nuttiness in the finish. But virtually NO warming effect, making me think this might be more in the 4-5% range....but I like it! Thanks Corny!

UPDATED: JAN 5, 2008 12 oz bottle via BA-SS-07 (thanks!). This pours a deep dark brown.Nose is all about the herbal and earthy notes. Taste is all caramel and malts with some earthy pine. Body is medium. carbonation is moderate. Not bad but could stand to have more body and more flavoe.

Soonah (1120) - Tulsa, Oklahoma, USA - FEB 4, 2009
The pour was brown with red highlights. Off-white head collapses quickly. Thin bits of lacing. The aroma is malty with light spice of cinnamon and clove. The flavor is light caramel, thin spice and malt. Mouthfeel is on the thin side and the carbonation is aggressive.

bleeng (1541) - Houston nowhere near Beersel, Texas, USA - FEB 16, 2009
12 oz bottle. Dark brown, fluffy tan head. Nose is sharp, peppers, spices, and a bit of turpentine. Taste comes off spicy, a bit malty, peppery, and that off taste of turpentine/paint thinner. This distracts what should be a very nice beer. OK to drink and goes down easy but that "odd" flavor does not do this beer any favors.

Skyview (5269) - Papoose Jct, Minnesota, USA - MAY 4, 2009
Sampled from 12-oz bottle and shared by moelikebeer. Pours a clear dark copper brown colored brew with an average sized beige head that has some nice retention and spotty lacing. Aroma of roasted dark malt, cloves, a hint of nutmeg and cinnamon, and white pepper. Taste is medium to full bodied, with flavors of roasted caramel malt, a hint of molasses, nutmeg, cinnamon and cloves. Finish is more towards the malty side with a clove and herbal aftertaste. A typical Christmas sliced strong ale.

Reviewed 7/23/2009 (bottle): Pours a dark reddish brown color body, with a foamy, average creamy off-white head. Malty aroma. Some roasted notes. Watery palate. Some roasted taste. Not bad tasting, a little malty sweet. A little hot.

Grabbed this on draft. You can tell it’s the same beer as Whiskey (End of Winter) Warmer, but it’s better. The bourbon doesn’t take over the taste. There’s a roast and raisin taste to it and the finish is a bit sweet. Definitely one of Rahr’s better beers.
