I like winter brews, generally. This was part of a sampler at Princeton. A beautiful deep red color, with no head. An 8.9 ABV is obvious in the tasting. A medium depth and heft is very nice. A spicy, hoppy, crisp flavor balanced the alcohol nicely. I had another of these after the sampler.

hophead75 (2008) - Largo, Florida, USA - FEB 18, 2008
on tap at Princeton. Almost clear dark amber in color with a medium off white head. Aroma is alot of clean, cararmel malts with touches of cinnamon and orange peel. Taste is very clean and malty, with smooth caramel, toasted malts, and a nice shot of cinnamon, nutmeg, and perhaps light touches of ginger in the mid-palate through the finish. the spice is very apparent, yet subtle enough where it doesn’t overpower the beer.

MrBendo (1064) - Swedesboro, New Jersey, USA - JAN 3, 2008
UPDATED: APR 22, 2008 Tap at Philly brewpub. Hazy dark copper color with a medium foamy head. This beer seems much closer to the higher gravity strong winter warmers than the spiced up lower gravity offerings.
Flavor was brown sugar and caramel malt with some orange and honey. A little bit of ginger. I seem to recall the ABV was about 7% by the chalkboard.

Rich, mildly sweet and light in the mouthfeel, hints of correndar and good amounts of malt....Triumph makes a quality brew here....

On tap in Philly. Hazy brick red with a skim of tan head. Nose is malts and light spice. Mildly sweet with faint touches of clove and orange. A bit uninspired for a winter brew but enjoyable.

keepersj12 (2714) - Sicklerville, New Jersey, USA - DEC 16, 2007
On tap at the Philadelphia location. Real good winter ale. Dark amber with nice head. Lots of spices in the aroma. Citrus taste with a lot of malt and a bit of sweetness. Finish is nice and dry.

Lots of spice and flavor with plenty of bitterness. Black in the glass with beige foam head. Very enjoyable.

smartlung (159) - Valrico, Florida, USA - JAN 27, 2007
tap in Princeton, couldnt put my finger on this one, spicy (corriander I think) and lightly floral, orange peel and malty, nutty and maybe chocolate at the finish - not bad!

1.13.07 From a growler brought to me from the Princeton location. Missed this many times when I lived in the area. Very nice, exactly what a wintry brew should be. Thick and rich, nice alcohol punch (7+%), lots of spices. Pretty nice
