This years seasonal offering is a crisp and hoppy brew. Its delightful taste and full body are enhanced by natural, earthy warmth. It's a celebration of all that winter brings. "Sure to keep you warm on those long cold winter nights."

Had at the Ravenous Pig at RBWG 2010. Pours a nice brown/red with a small white head. The aroma is all old ale with some hops, but the flavor is big sweet and lots of chocolate with plenty of hop bitterness. This is a nice combo of flavors.

bottle thanks to John, pours light caramel, thin white head. Very nice aroma of cascade and orange marmalade and alcohol. Wow, lots of alcohol and sweet bready malts. A very interesting winter beer.

hopscotch (9364) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - MAR 16, 2010
Bottle… RBWG ‘10… Cloudy burnt orange ale with a small, short-lived, white head. The nose is fruity, earthy and malty – cascade hops, toffee and caramel. Medium-bodied with laid-back carbonation. Lots of earthy, citrusy hop bitterness. Toffee and caramel undertones. Lengthy, bitter, dry finish. Thanks to jcwattsrugger for sharing!

750 mL bottle pours deep reddish brown with little creamy head into a snifter. Thin aroma of caramel malt, hops, grapefruit. Hop bitterness balances well with the caramel malt, kind of a burnt sugar taste. Finishes with some light toffee, raisins, brown sugar, bit of booziness. Exceptional silky mouthfeel. Full bodied and low carbonation. Good stuff that warms nicely. Underrated.

Draught @ the Brewpup - Pours dk amber with a small beige head...aroma is roasty, hoppy and slightly sweet...flavour is exactly what I dig in a winter brew, sweet caramel malt, roast gritty grain, nice bitter and aromatic hop balance, little bit of cocoa...finish is warming and sticks to the insides...I really liked this one...

Thanks to Toby for this one. Pours out a ruby-copper color with a small to moderate slightly off white head. Aroma is of some citrus hops and some caramel/fruity sweetness. Taste is complex, dried fruit and some interesting earthy notes are balanced well by a good hit of some citrus flavored hops. Alcohol is barely noticeable.

Courtesy of Degarth. Pours copper with a bit of haze and thin tan head. The aroma has a quick hit of roasty malts before sweet dark fruity esters are noticed with layers of boysenberry, Concord grape jam and cherries. Yum. The taste is just like the aroma with a mild roasted malt flavor that rides throughout. The dark fruitiness isn’t as bold as in the nose and seems to be cut by mild grapefruit and pine hop bitterness.

On tap at Sockeye Boise, Pours out a dark murky brown topped with a small tan head. A nice sweet aroma of citrus hops. A pretty nice winter brew. A little spice and some sweet hops. Very well done.
