ajnepple (6160) - Denver, Colorado, USA - FEB 21, 2016
12 oz single, bottled nearly 5 months ago, purchased at the Craft Beer Cellar - Fort Collins. Deep, dark brown appearance with a fluffy, lingering tan head and patchy lacing. Aroma of chocolate, caramel malt, toffee, roasted grain and light spices. Similar flavor, with more spices and a mild hop bitterness. Medium plus body with smooth, creamy feel and a bittersweet finish. Not bad.

a somewhat malty brew with some caramel and a bit of spice. tingly licorice in the malt and a touch of roastred cocoa. alcohol feels like a question. moderate to light in body it is refreshing and quenching for a winter brew. still some substance and nice looking brew dark with light mocha head.

zoucrew102 (1725) - - JAN 30, 2016
Bottle. Caramel malt aroma with with spicy hop, toffee and some roasty notes. Pours dark copper colored with a thin tan head with poor retention and some lacing. Starts with sweet toffee and caramel flavors with a bit of roast. Finishes quite dry with spicy hop bitterness that lingers on the palate with the roast and a bit of booze. Pretty good, but the finish wasn't overly desirable.

12 oz bottle pours a hazy reddish brown with a tan head. Instant aroma of toffee, caramel, and diacetyl. Flavor has more roast and toffee. Decent, but nothing incredible here.

BillKismet (3991) - Seattle, Washington, USA - DEC 17, 2015
Maroon colored brew with a browned head. Piny hops and buzzy amber malts in the nose give off a hint of holiday spice. The aroma is spicy and piny with perhaps of a touch of tannenbaum quality. Nice buzzy resinous character and an intimation of juniper.
