2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
UPDATED: APR 4, 2005 Tap at Redbones: pours dark amber with a creamy beige head. Mild caramel aroma. Flavor seems a bit off, almost vegetal. Mild earthy hop flavor. Decent but something seems off with this.
Bottle: pours clear copper with a smallish tan head. Light aroma of anise. Light flavor of anise. Better than the tap at Redbones.

12 oz. bottle. clear copper/orage with a thin, wispy tan head. Light, fruity aroma with a hint of spice. Taste can be summed up in one word, sweet. Has a sugery, carmel flavor. Summed up in one word, sweet. Not a bad beer, but a bit too sugery for my taste.

12oz bottle-pours a foamy tan head that reduces to a lasting cover and copper color. Aroma is roasty, medium malt-toffee, home brewish/earthy first smell +, then ?. Taste is slightly sweet roasty/peat medium malt-toffee/cocoa, some herbal/metallic/aspirin hops. Thanks to Joe-jwc215 for picking this out.

Bottle. Hard pour, small head which quickly receeded. Nice amber color. Bit of sweetness in the taste. Little bitterness in the finish. Not a bad beer, just doesn’t stand out for me.

12oz bottle. This is from a local brewery to me so I have tried most of their offerings. As with their other beers there is nothing special here. Just OK.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
nice amber/ orange colored ale with fast fading head. Aroma was caramel and vanilla. The taste took some effort to get but was some grassiness and pine. Almost reminded me of the smell of air in the fall with all the dieing leaves. Smooth texture

2.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle, December 2005 (from notes). Pours a dark brown with a frothy head. Aroma is heavy malt with a bit of chocolate characteristics. Flavor is a muddled mess of spices, chocolate, and malt, with a little hop as well. I did not like this at all.

Flavor is roast a bit of burning, ligth sweetness, caramel and honey hints, matchstick and some sulfur off flavors. Harsh solventy mouthfeel. Something went wrong here.

2.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
2004 bottle. Rosy peach-orange body. HEAVILY filtered, small light beige head with an aroma of caramelized brown sugar, some very light fruity yeast notes and some dry nutty nuances. Flavor does not work. Wow, this is way too sweet. Scotch ale or no scotch ale, this stuff is sugary, boring, very uncomplex and even artificial tasting. Tastes like it was made out of an extract homebrew kit, watery, syrupy flavors, seemingly very few different malts used (at least I can’t taste much variation). I took one or two sips and poured the rest out.

Not much going on in this winter ale. I have a few others I would buy again before this one. Not enough going on in this beer to comment specifically.
