Another really nice rich winter beer. Sweet maltiness in the aroma and the flavor is fruity with some nuttiness coming through as well. Some toffee and caramel flavors are quite dominant with a little bit of hops coming through in the aftertaste. MoreHead (355) - Minnetonka, Minnesota, USA - JAN 10, 2006
pours brown with red tilt, decent head and lacing. aroma is very interesting, sweet and tangy with the dough, nut, malt, and hops. taste is english, smooth with a nice, short bitter hops ending. FoolishMortal (990) - San Diego, California, USA - DEC 31, 2005
12oz. bottle. Dark amber brown color with a small light tan head. Caramel, toffee, and herbal hop aromatics. Smooth caramel flavors with some raisin. Slight bitter vegetal hop component in the finish. Mouthfeel is medium, rather smooth. mjg74 (3137) - La Mesa, California, USA - DEC 22, 2005
Bottled. Pours a medium/dark amber color. Sweet malty aroma. Some english type hops as well, I believe. Somehwta sweet up front. Mildly hoppy and malty. A rather mild tasting brew. Reminds be of a sweet/strong bitter. Has a sublime finish that I can’t put my finger on. kms399 (267) - plymouth, Minnesota, USA - DEC 19, 2005

Dark ruby color with a thin creamy white head. Doughy aroma and flavor. Smooth mouthfeel and a clean finish. tennisjoel (1475) - Rochester, Minnesota, USA - DEC 7, 2005
UPDATED: DEC 17, 2005 Malty aroma. Caramel / Toffee, nuts present. Thin lasting head. Decent lacing. Attractive dark red in color. Would be a little better if a little more hops were present, but this isn’t too bad. Maybe a little sticky on the palate, otherwise pretty good. bu11zeye (13029) - Frisco (Dallas), Texas, USA - DEC 6, 2005
(Bottle) Pours a deep amber-brown body with a small beige head. Aroma of caramel, licorice, toasted malt, cocoa, and a hint of tobacco. Flavor of toasted malt, caramel, charry, vanilla, and pepper. oldrtybastrd (5003) - Fort Walton Beach, Florida, USA - DEC 6, 2005
Pours a dark amber. Aromas of malts/toffee/spice. Flavors of malts, caramel and some backend hops. jimmyh221 (157) - Brooklyn Park, Minnesota, USA - NOV 26, 2005
Had a spare diminishing head and a light brown color. It was a nice smooth tasting beer with no aftertaste.
