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.

UPDATED: DEC 15, 2007 Rerate Pick up a bit of a nectarine-like fruitiness in the flavor this time around. Enjoyable - same score. Original 3.4 Slightly malty aroma, thin, quickly dissipating head with a wee bit of lacing. Nice amber color. Nothing really memorable about the flavor - kind of dry with a bit of a bitter aftertaste little bit of a hoppiness to it - it’s from the west coast ain’t it?. Beats the Bud Light that they will be serving at the New Years Eve party I am going to.

Pours a coppery amber with a thin white head. Smells of yogurt with some mellow tangy fruits ans some nuts. Tastes peppery with some nuts, nutmeg, and spices shining through.

HogTownHarry (6322) - Toronto (Harbourfront), Ontario, CANADA - JAN 2, 2006
Bottle (12oz). Poured deep clear copper with a small white skim head. Aroma of crushed spruce boughs - it’s almost all spruce resin hops, only the faintest hint of light roast malt; says "winter" to me. Taste is a nice blend of tea/orange peel hops, light malt - juicy faint woody malt, a nice evergreen crispness to it, some caramel and yeast as it warmed. Mouthfeel is astringent and lightly acidic, lightly carbonated - quite nice, not spectacular, but a nice session ale for this time of year.

Dark brown with a whipped tan top. There's a thin consistency. It's a tad bitter and nutty with a metallic citric finish.

onceblind (5885) - Denver, Colorado, USA - DEC 29, 2011
Clear dark amber, with a nice but small foamy head that left ok lacing. Aroma was confusing for an English Strong, or a winter ale for that matter. I got a lot of citrus rind, nutmeg, toasted biscuit, burnt toffee, and a great big dose of herbal hops. In the flavor the hoppiness was a little restrained, leaving plenty of room for some biscuity toffee malts to come through, with some citrus rind, a little nutmeg, and some soft bitterness from herbal hops at the finish. Not shabby, but nothing I’d buy again.

Thanks to SefanSD for this brew. Winterhook #29.
Reddish-brown in the glass, nice roasted nose. The beer starts malty, dry. The mainpart is a bit more dry, nicely malty and very nicely hopped. The bitter-hops get more intense till the end, nicely dry with the roasted malt, and still easy to drink.
a very nice winter beer - not sweet and nicely balanced. --> 12/11/12/12
