2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Deep copper coloured body with a thin off-white head. Aroma of malt, figs, pit fruit and caramel. Medium-bodied; Spicey nuttiness up front with malt and caramel once again most noticeable. Aftertaste shows a bit of difference - some nuts and raisins stand out most. Overall, a decent holiday beer to try...pick it up if you can find it! I sampled this twelve ounce bottle purchased from Oliver’s Beverage in Albany, New York on 23 November 2006 (Thanksgiving).

Not the best good beer... but I’d drink it if I only had to drink one.

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.

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.
