It pours a chestnut brown in color and has a light amount of visible carbonation. There wasn’t any head and it left ring-like yet spotty lacing around the glass. The smell has an abundance of nutty malts and a bit of alcohol. The taste is basically the same with just some sweetness and hints of spice. There is a slight bitterness but it isn’t anything overbearing. The palate is about a low to medium sort of feel with nothing harsh on the tongue. It has a dry aftertaste and finish. Overall, it is a drinkable beer. Its good for its style and decent for me.

Brownish, clear, with yellow foam. Mild Candice, malt, caramel, in the aroma. Sweet malt, with burned sugar in that grows into a sweet burned aftertaste that grows, Watery and high in carbon

pours a burgundy copper with a medium off white head. Aroma is floral. Taste is bright and hoppy, hint of citrus. Moderate hoppy bitterness slowly creeps in then slowly fades through the finish. Good beer.

jds2008 (20) - Washington, USA - DEC 18, 2014
Mahogany colored ale, fine head that lingers and clings, slightly roasty malty aroma with spicy hops, caramel beginning but strong hoppy bitterness and malty finish. Good but not great.

Eirikur (378) - hafnarfjordur, ICELAND - NOV 28, 2014
Pours well, thick-ish dark amber, with medium head. Its one of those non-traditionals. For my taste its a bit too hoppy for a winter seasonal. Apart from that, its well constructed and would siut better with food then on its own.

Drank from the bottle. Aroma consists of nuts, caramel, toffee, and pine. Taste is resin, metal, nuts, and caramel. Medium bodied beer with moderate carbonation and a slight sticky mouth feel.

A brown amber color. Roasty malt flavors. Some bitterness. I immediately thought red ale.

"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."

Bottle at home. A bit "out of season", but what the hell. Aroma is of spice, wood, toasted malt. High carbonation. Flavors include rye, pumpernickel bread, piney hops, crackers, cinnamon, grass. Dry, roasty finish. A great winter seasonal, even in August.
