Livendadream (149) - New Mexico, USA - JAN 18, 2014
Btl pours a beautiful clear brown color, creamy off white head that leaves great lacing but dissipates quickly. Smells of light roasted malt,toffee and floral hops and a hint of chocolate. Tastes of malt,chocolate, a tad bit of toasted bread and hops.Light to medium body, creamy texture, soft carbonation, dry,bitter finish. Good beer, nice malty taste with a crisp and clean hop flavor. Decent winter offering from redhook.

BarePaw (148) - Pullman, Washington, USA - JAN 13, 2003
The head was thin and didnít last long. The feel on my palate wasnít impressive. It has a nice fruity flavor, but it isnít very strong. It isnít my favorite winter brew.

Braincage1 (147) - Cary, North Carolina, USA - NOV 6, 2009
Bottle. A clear ruby brown beer with a thin tan head. Combination of caramel, nuts and light bitter chocolate makes for a nice aroma. Strong sour vegetable flavor to start but mellows out to a more well rounded but diluted roasted peanut flavor.

kpresley77 (146) - Jackson, Georgia, USA - APR 5, 2009
Bottle courtesy of beastiefan2k pours deep amber with thin white head. Aroma is upfront malt similar to a scotch ale. First tast is sweet malt then a nice resinous hops presence. Finish is malt. Pretty nice.

Jkripp (141) - Washington, USA - JAN 31, 2011
This is a classic Redhook seasonal ale. Its bold but smooth flavor rests well on my palate as comfortable as a majority as my other favorite beers.

donvitozou (141) - memphis, Tennessee, USA - DEC 4, 2004
heavier and more body than other winter lagers. there is a robust ginger taste that comes with a bite, almost like a pale ale, but darker, if that makes sense

11.28.2011 - Houston, TX Bottle Well crafted winter ale. Dark, yet smooth and simple. Not too filling. Nice aroma with a nice blend of hops that give a delicous palate.

blatz (138) - Palm Beach Gardens, FL, Florida, USA - DEC 8, 2001
2001I was kind of disappointed in this one. I was expecting a hearty, dark, rich ale, but I got a watered down ESB dark. Dark copper color, weak head that faded quickly and a dark taste that was reminiscent of burnt, watered down ESB (which I do love however). If you are buying several winter brews this year, and need to somehow limit whicch ones you get, this may be the one to leave off. Maybe next year.

bconger (138) - Birmingham, Alabama, USA - MAY 29, 2008
Bottle. Dark copper pour with a very thin head. Hops, caramel, and some yeast on the nose. Hoppy flavor up front with sour lemon and malty elements. This beer lacks backbone. There are nice high notes and the hops are decent, but it feels empty with too little middle-maltiness. Nice carbonation and mouthfeel, though.

Brewosk (137) - Illinois, USA - MAR 22, 2007
Nice Red/Amber color. Lasting head. Pinish hops flavour. Pleasant spiced aftertaste. On tap at Old Chicago
