12 oz. bottle. Pours a dark copper--same as an old penny--with a small off-white head. Smells of some sour citrusy hops, also a little metallicky as well. Thin mouthfeel, not very bitter, with a lingering "blah" finish. After the "blah," I get a little bit of a grassy aftertaste. Not terribly impressed with this one.

Pours dark reddish brown. Aroma is sweet, nutty, hints of citrus, maybe hints of coffee. Aroma is not that strong though. Flavor is very watery, but after that there is some nut, coffee, pine, citrus. Palate is watery and very thin. If it weren’t so watery it seems like it would be a solid brew, but in this form it doesn’t do much for me.

Ratman197 (12540) - Arvada, Colorado, USA - NOV 22, 2006
Bottle poured a clear tarnished copper with a small lasting amber head. Aromas of bread, a hint of brown sugar, a bit of anise and plastic. Palate was medium bodied and smooth. Flavors of bread, a hint of rye and light spice with a smooth dry lightly astringent finish.

JB175 (1665) - Bucks County, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 9, 2006
UPDATED: DEC 10, 2006 Dark amber color with a sweet sugary aroma. Taste has some spices and excess sugar, plus marshmallows. Unofortunately, this tasted like AB’s Bourbon Cask ale that I tried recently. Not all that good.

Reviewed 1/29/2009 (bottled 12/02/08): Pours a very clear brown colored body, with a small head, off-white in color. Has a hoppy malty sweet aroma. A dusty, light sweet taste. Very light tasting. Not much flavor. Has some hoppiness and bitterness, but not much flavor.

Jblauvs (1357) - Chester, Vermont, USA - OCT 22, 2009
Brown pour with a fizzy head that quickly dissipates. Aroma is mild spicey hop with a wierd urine tinge. Caramel malt as well. Flavor is mostly some flabby caramel malt and spicey hop but the two never really come together. Not very good

Bottle. Oddly hoppy aroma for a beer in this style. Smells faintly like a DFH 60 minute combined with the smell of wet leaves. Pours a rich chestnut brown with a half finger width of cream colored head that dissipates quickly. Taste is at first slightly malty with a faint taste of cider spices (a la traditional winter brews). Mouthfeel is very thin, almost watery, and the back taste is almost non-existent. Not a bad beer, but I’ve had both better winter brews and English strong ales.

aenimopiate (176) - The United States of Texas, Texas, USA - MAR 28, 2011
Pours a darker copper color with a thin tan head that hangs around for a bit. Taste is nothing too remarkable...thin malt and hops. Has a strange coppery like aftertaste that is just plain weird. It doesn’t taste like I just drank a beer... Not one of my favorites.

boxofrane (2553) - Spring City, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 3, 2014
Bottle. Pours clear reddish brown with a small off white head and limited retention. The aroma is all malt.. some caramel and toffee seem to dominate. The taste is malty but really not much of a defined flavor.. just a mix of sweetness.
