hopscotch (10601) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - DEC 8, 2003
Sparkling clear, burnt orange/ruby ale. Cheap aftershave and vineous notes within the nose and flavor along with toffee and leathery, citrusy and evergreen hops. Medium-bodied with a creamy mouthfeel and fizzy carbonation. Short, thin, lightly bitter finish.

adnielsen (10484) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - OCT 23, 2010
Tasted from a 12 oz. bottle purchased in Fort Collins, Colorado. Medium to dark copper toned body with a larger size head. Toasty malty aroma and strong alcoholic flavor with a rough texture.

slowrunner77 (10088) - Reno, Nevada, USA - OCT 18, 2014
"a nice nutty malt flavor greets you, but it kind of goes off the tracks after that. better than their average beer, but with the abundance of winter ales out there, this one is easily passable."

djd07 (10002) - Houston, Texas, USA - DEC 18, 2007
Bottle. Pours a dark amber coor with a medium off white head that diminishes quickly. The aroma is a light malt with caramel and light hops. Good lacing on the glass. The taste is a sweet hop with a clean dry finish. A good english strong ale from Redhook.

deyholla (9997) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - DEC 31, 2009
Bottle. Poured a clear dark brown with a thin beige head. Aroma was full of roasted malts, but a little weak over all. Flavor was a bit weak as well with roasted malts and a bit of alcohol.

DocLock (9982) - Lower Pottsgrove, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 30, 2005
Dark copper pour, with minimal head. Aroma of caramal malt, brown sugar, some vegetals, and even brine. The taste was caramel malty but had funky vegetal off notes that I’m hoping were an aberration. I had a hard time finishing this one.

jercraigs (9835) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 4, 2005
Bottle from random gas station in Maine. Brown body, creamy beige head. Green hoppy aroma was unexpected, and only becomes more prominent as the glass goes on. Touch of smokey log cabin in the background. Flavour is a bit odd. Very strong celery characteristics, Mild bitterness over sweet malt hiding below. Vaguely herbal/licorice undertones. Average palate. Bizarrely interesting. Enjoyable but puzling.

DrSilverworm (9671) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - DEC 10, 2011
12oz bottle. Clear red color with a brown hue, thin khaki head. Some lace. Interesting, intriguing aroma... Sort of a sweet taste. Like a red twizzler. Sort of fruity hops, like fruit punch. Interesting sweetness, kind of sugary. Despite the more pronounced carbonation, this is drinkable because the taste is so interesting. A winter ale that’s more on the candy side. My mom had a taste, she suggested orange... I can see that

BVery (9574) - Plymouth, Minnesota, USA - JAN 12, 2009
UPDATED: FEB 8, 2009 BOTTLE: amber/clear color, aroma is light. A little hoppy, with spice tones and slight nut flavor. Just okay.

Roasted malt and silky caramel…Sweet fruit and cinnamon…More of an autumn beer…
