Tallahassee, Fl - New Leaf Market - 12 oz bottle. Dark copper pour, thickish off-white head that sticks around a while and leaves a bit of lacing. Aroma has some nutty accents, a hint of caramel. Full-bodied flavor with some caramel sweetness, some cotton candy hints, a wee bit of bourbon-like booziness. Thickish mouthfeel. Overall, a decent winter warmer.

Thisis12ptfont (931) - Los Angeles, CA, California, USA - NOV 10, 2012
Aroma is generously hopped with a slight pine smell. Deep ruby/amber with a quick dissipating foam. Immense and full bodied with complex flavors of wheat, heavy caramel, molasses, brown sugar and oats. Booze is very well masked. Overall, this is absolutely fantastic. A genius winter ale with a hop dryness upfront and a very sweet finish leaving you a pleasant alcohol warmth.

steelers (35) - Minnesota, USA - NOV 8, 2012
Poured out of a 12 oz bottle into a glass. Clear dark amber with a generous head. Hoppie was the first thing I notice, didn’t exspect so much hop. Orange peel and pine flavors are similar, backed by a strong caramel maltiness. Winter spices are present. Medium body, creamy, medium carbonation and pleasant malt sweetness in the finish. Over all I enjoyed this beer. I recall last years batch to be much better personally.

thegreenrooster (3395) - St.louis, Missouri, USA - NOV 7, 2012
Pour is a dark red with a small tan head. Aroma is deffinatly hops with some sweet sticky malts. Flavor is more of the malts to start and then you are left with a little hop bite right after the swallow. Kinda reminds me of an American strong ale but not ABV strong. Thick, rich malts with a decent hoppy backbone.
