FUNK (120) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 29, 2001
A very good beer. It has a smooth spicy flaver that warms you up after a hard day skiing.

boto (1808) - Granby, Connecticut, USA - MAY 30, 2001
A very good winter brew. Not quite up with the Snow Cap, but still a keeper!

Very good, very spicy and only $6 a six pack.

21iceman40 (1731) - vienna, West Virginia, USA - SEP 2, 2001
UPDATED: MAR 1, 2003 Not very strong for an english strong ale. Boring malty flavor. Nothing special here.

dosxxjuarez99 (1) - whittier, California, USA - NOV 30, 2000 does not count
Too bad it’s only a seasonal beer. Goes well with a meal.

Kaya161 (1128) - San Diego, California, USA - DEC 2, 2000
This beer tastes remarkably similar to their ESB, but perhaps a bit sweeter. Nice copper color, fruity and caramel flavor with a slight hop finish.

Zach Diesel (906) - Portland, Oregon, USA - NOV 27, 2000
It was good but not great. Well worth trying I’d say.

Oakes (11866) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JAN 5, 2001
UPDATED: DEC 1, 2003 Golden-brown. Toasty, chocolatey, with a floral hoppiness. Body comes up quite empty, though. Toasty, woody notes but not much of that good stuff the aroma promised.
