brenn79 (1519) - Idaho, USA - JAN 11, 2013
12 oz. bottle- Pours very cloudy with a creamy tan one finger head that reduces. Aroma is malty, caramel, sweet and somewhat tangy, some wood. The taste is the same, creamy and malty, moderate dry bitterness. Body is medium to almost full, carbonation is medium high. Overall I liked it, not the best winter warmer, but enjoyable.

GTAEgeek (1219) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - JAN 8, 2013
12 oz. bottle. Dark brown with a medium, tan head. The aroma is caramel, cut grass, chalk, and milk chocolate. The flavor is malty sweetness, with a nice mild bitterness in the finish. Medium body, a little astringent, and thick. Overall, this is a nice winter warmer, with a delicious low-level bitterness.

poisoneddwarf (1711) - Rathdrum, Idaho, USA - DEC 28, 2012
12 oz bottle. Pours cloudy brown with a thick beige head with good retention; leaves a little lace. Aroma consists of cooked cabbage, caramel. Taste is malty sweet with a lightly bitter finish; a bit garbagey. Nothing wrong with the palate. Overall, an unimpressive winter warmer--a bit boring.

Fatehunter (1205) - Corbett, Oregon, USA - DEC 27, 2012
Half finger of head on a dark and cloudy brown colored body. Smell is all rich dark fruit with a little barnyard yeast. Strong flavor of plum. Alcohol and bitterness bring up the end. Crisp texture with a lower carbonation and medium body. A nice dig on the Old Ale style. A winner in the Winter Ale category.

Shink (177) - Portland, Oregon, USA - DEC 1, 2012
Out of the bottle. Pours a very dark brown with a light brown head. Smell is a little sweet and malty. This beer is a very good mix between sweet and bitter. A very good seasonal from a good brewery.

Bottle: The aroma consists of toffee, caramel, light wood, and some oxidation. It pours a somewhat cloudy orangish-brown with a small beige head that quickly fades to a thin film. The flavor starts with caramel and toffee. The finish has some aged citrus hops and oxidation. Itís medium bodied with moderate carbonation. Overall, it tastes like a aged and oxidized Barley Wine.

Hearty dark malt body. Rich and dripping with winter beer seasonings. Sweet toffee notes with raisin and caramel. Some brown sugar character and perhaps a bit of rye spice. Grass and orange peel.
