A very good beer. It has a smooth spicy flaver that warms you up after a hard day skiing.

(from December 2008): 12oz bottle from the local Shaw’s. Pours a translucent dark copper color with a good half inch of off-white head. Smells fruity, spicy, hoppy, malty, caramel/toffee... Tastes fruity, with cinnamon, nutmeg, orange zest, nut, toffee, caramel, just a tinge of butter... A wide plethora of flavors with the malt and hops both playing huge roles. Medium bodied with moderate carbonation combines with the pleasant flavors to make this one super-drinkable. A new favorite winter beer!

UPDATED: DEC 1, 2003 Dark copper color. decent head.Malted smells of caramel and deep roast and the flavor delivers the same mesage. Good beer. The one thing that Anheuser did was buy into Redhook. I bought this beer again and liked it even more the second time. I noticed more hops than the first time. Damn good beer.

Very nice. The complexity of the flavors in this beer are quite satisfying. Dark and smooth it is a great beer for a cold winter’s night.
