Bottle: Reddish brown pour with little to no head. A woody, fruity, caramel aroma. Sweet, malty flavor. This tasted much better than the aroma. Not too bad.

7.25 version. 12 oz pour from refrigerated bottle into Spiegelau IPA glass. Fairly aggressive pour produced a small white head that dissipated fairly quickly. A little bit of foam lingered though. Hazy copper with lots of carbonation. Nose is awesome. Kind of a caramel tropical fruit. Both strong malt and strong hops. Same goes for the taste. Mouthfeel is creamy and smooth. Taste is a strong buttery/biscuity backbone with great tropic fruit and citrus up from. Very well balanced with both the hops and the malt coming through strong. I am very impressed.

Fairly rich, malty coco flavor. A little spice in there with a hint of bitterness. not bad from Big Sky

Call it the clash of aromas: you get both a hoppy citrus and a malty bread plus some sort of spice. Taste is equally well balanced though the hops win out by just a little on the finish. Pours to a beautiful head. My bottle stated the alcohol content at 7.2%, but it was not at all boozy. I realize I drank this a little out of season, but I enjoyed it on the home patio with an early evening chill in the air, so Im going to say it all balanced out.

obisbeer (568) - Barcelona, SPAIN - JUN 22, 2004
Thick head, rich brown color. Molasses nose, some steelyness. Creamy start with fruit, carmel, chocolate and some hops. Well balanced, not a bad winter session beer.

chimpscampee (566) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - DEC 1, 2006
6.2 alcohol is not that noticeable. I like this more than the few other "winter" spiced ales and largers Ive tried

3.6
Pershing (560) - Garland, Texas, USA - FEB 1, 2015
7.25 ABV version. Hazy orange with a small head. Fruity sweet aroma. Medium sweet malt taste with some hop bitterness, Filling finish with some lingering hop.

3.3
howie (549) - DeForest, Wisconsin, USA - OCT 10, 2005
Amber brown body, short white head. Sweet malty, slightly woody, slightly herbal aromas. Sweet maltiness with a tannic tea-like bitterness in the background. Leans too far to the sweet side and never really satisfies.

3.3
AbbeyRoade (547) - Missouri, USA - JAN 10, 2015
Malty. Strong flavor and not boozy. Hop bitterness present as well. Good winter warming ale.

2.7
VitaminR (540) - Colorado, USA - FEB 9, 2008
Slight raisins on the nose. Burnt orange. Not much sweetness, almost "soapy quality. Not very well balanced. Good body, needs more carbonation. Way better winter beers out there.
