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.

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.

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.

Definitely pine, slightly like Bell’s winter ale but generally nothing special, average, not worth more than $1.00 a bottle.

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

sneezey (135) - Hackettstown, New Jersey, USA - SEP 2, 2007
Less hops than their ESB, a bit more balanced. Nice overall beer but not perfect. Bit toasty on the malt side, heavy but not too strong. Maybe just a bit thinner than expected but not bad.

jennajlover (135) - Portland, Oregon, USA - MAR 15, 2006
Poured into a pint glass from a 12 oz. bottle. Light orange with red-orange hues. Nice two finger head from a medium to hard pour. Smell is of pine, citrus, and biscuits and maybe a touch of scotch. Taste is pungent hops and smooth toasty malt...some spice. Good beer

psuCE03 (135) - York, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 11, 2007
Pours a dark amber color and produced little to no head. Has a great aroma and was a very flavorful winter ale

hamrech (134) - Carbondale, Illinois, USA - OCT 17, 2009
The gold standard for average winter ales from mid-grade microbreweries. There’s nothing "wrong" with it whatsoever, but there’s nothing particularly good about it either.

beerbrat99 (132) - Shanghai, CHINA - DEC 31, 2007
Bottle. Pours a brilliant amber/orange hue. Tan head with minimal lacing. Aroma of malty roastiness with some bubblegum and sweet candy. Flavor is roasty and very dry with some residual candy notes as well. A decent brew but nothing to rock the socks during winter.
