A pretty high ABV, seasonal brew. I actually think it tastes a bit stronger bottled versus tap. Something to look forward to every winter!

Bottle - Pours a clear amber with a smallish head. Aromas of caramel, malts and a=something astringent. Taste is malt forward with some orange and light spice notes and then some bitterness. Not really a Christmas beer in my book, and so good overall.

Draft at the United Club at IAH. Pours a clear, copper color with a very thin, white head. Sweet aroma with some spice. Hoppiness in the background. Smooth taste. Some spice bite. Little bit of hops mixed with malt Pretty decent beer. Especially for the United Club.

Ah, what to say about this beer... Went well with my Christmas dinner (not just because I had an open mind either). Thinking of brewing up a clone for the holiday season myself

Dark amber color head dissapears fast. Aroma malts fresh and earthy. Faint spices of some kind. Nice hop taste on the tounge bitter finish. Has some balls to it. Chewy mouth feel kind of a cross between anchor steam and bass ale...fairly interesting

Beaver (1327) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - MAR 4, 2014
12 oz bottle. Pours clear red amber with a small creamy white head that goes to a thin film that leaves some lacing.

The aroma is sweet figgy malts with a little spice.

The flavor is sweet biscuity malts with some dark fruit and light spice. The mouthfeel is medium bodied with prickly carbonation.

Overall, an OK kind of bland Christmas beer.

Pours a clear golden-amber with a very short light tan head. Soft, wet mouthfeel that becomes scrubby and mildly astringent. Cinnamon, peach and apricot nose. Well blended, soft toffee, spicy peach and apricot.
