It’s muky but also appealing, like a bran muffin or plum pudding, but cold, a little body chewiness, thats okay, maybe oatmeal. the aroma is solidly blaanced tween malt and hops, so at moments i dont smell either. dome spice, maybe cardamon. similar spice in the flavor, the fruit flavor not quite peach or plum, reined in by hte hops, towards the piney, but balanced by the fruit.

Tap... Poured a hazy ruby with a beige head. Floral aroma with leafy hops and maybe brown sugar, well, something sweet. Highly carbonated and it had a foamy texture. Flavors of dry hops, caramel, malt, and plums for an extra sweetness. Besides the intense carbonation, this seemed pretty close to a Barley Wine.

Draft at TFD Boise: Pours a muddy orange color with a large sandy head. Aroma is intense with floral and citrus hoppiness, just a little malty sweets. I really liked the hop presence here, potent, but in balance with the caramel malt. This was really enjoyable.

On tap at the Front Door Boise, ID. Pours out a nice amber topped with a nice tan head. A great aroma of hops all over it. A nice mix of sweetness and bitter. A very good brew.

Angeloregon (2055) - Portland, Oregon, USA - DEC 24, 2007
Thanks to Gareth for the taster--Poured a deep brown-mahogany hue with a small rocky off-white head. Nose of sweet malts and biting piny hops. Sweet and fruity notes with mildly nutty flavors. Pretty good, as most TG beers are.

on tap Rose and Raindrop Portland, OR Well executed winter brew. Nice nutbrown color with fine carbonation. Sweet, thick, hoppy all in balance. Not overwhelmingly inspiring, but one of the best winter seasonals i tried this year.
