I thought this was fairly decent. Has a slight stickiness to it and sweetness as well, but pretty drinkable, about two at a time. Surprised. Shanebrews (299) - Virginia, USA - NOV 25, 2012
This beer fills me up. I find the sugar note pleasant. It is easy-drinking if not very remarkable. I don’t ever pair this with food. I buy a case when it comes out yearly. sinfull (1847) - Brooklyn, New York, USA - JUL 23, 2013

Smells of caramel and brown sugar. Taste is like mildly bitter toffee and kind of roasty. There is a slight caramel note. Aftertaste is medium length with bitterness at first and then wheat and caramel. Sharp but medium carbonation and slightly foamy. crazyvin (2026) - New York, USA - NOV 3, 2010
Poured a reddish-amber hue with an off-white head. Head had good retention and some lace. Aroma had a mix of spices, mainly nutmeg and sugar. It almost had a Dr. pepper quality to it. Flavor was a little on the sweet side, some yeast notes but no bread notes to it, the spices were a subtle, and maybe too subtle. Finish was smooth.

A smooth, sweet and easy drinking dark amber brew. Heavy body. Nice balance. Well made stuff. Good winter brew, especially when you don’t want to hit the hill with high ABV. Aurelius (5659) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - DEC 3, 2010
Candied Belgian ale aroma with some vanilla and dust. Good embossed bottle, decent label, clear medium walnut brown with a ringing white head. Appearance knock for the twistoff. Toasted, slightly sweet, nice malting, a good ale twang. Medium body, sort of a brown ale finish. Pretty drinkable. Publix. puzzl (3264) - New York, New York, USA - DEC 19, 2010
Bottled. Added a little bit of it to my potato leek soup and it was delicious, so obviously this beer is awesome.SODAK14 (391) - Rapid City, South Dakota, USA - JAN 14, 2011
Pours rather flat, no head. Deep umber brown pour. Mildly spicy but kind of clumsy yeast aroma. Moderate herbal (thyme, rosemary) notes. Good body, smooth, easy drinking. A good amount of personality, very wintery. Certainly one of the better macro products out there. The low carbonation feels quite appropriate when drinking it.
A very good ale! I wish this was available year around! I know they sold out to the Big Brewer..butthey nailed this one. Great color but the taste is what makes it. morgrett (20) - - APR 26, 2013
