Had this beer on 6/23/2000. Aroma is like a wine with roasted malt in it. Color is a hazy brown with light carbonation and head. Taste is nutty, woody, and a bit roasted. Starting with medium body that goes down with a nutty flavor. Finish is a mildly roasted malt flavor that has a wood like flavor in it and is followed up by a slight winey tang. kp (10880) - Woodstock, Georgia, USA - SEP 1, 2007

The score was calculated based upon the notes and an old scoring system.
This one has alot of nuts and alot of spices, its almost like a nut brown with some ginger or something in it. Interesting but understated. Not really a session beer as id only have one in a sitting due ot the weird spices. Gabemik (46) - Joplin, Missouri, USA - APR 8, 2007
Pours a very deep red. Not much light can get through this brew. Aroma is faint, almost nothing. There’s a ghost of the chinooks and some spice. The flavor is a bit nutty, a bit hoppy, some carbination, and a hint of alchohol. mrdeath5493 (113) - Arkansas, USA - APR 2, 2007
Brown and clear. Not much head. Smells nice, with spicy and sweet notes. Taste though is too spicy for me. A definite blend of many flavors, but with no balance.

Pours redish brown and slightly opaque. Aroma is spicy and malty. Flavor is of cinnamon, brown sugar, nutmeg, peraps ginger. The body is fine, but, IMO, not enough hops to balance it. Lingering alcohol in the finish. madscotsman (147) - Fairview Heights, Illinois, USA - FEB 17, 2007
Brown in color with little head. Spicy aroma which also carried into the flavor. Nice winter treat. TheKegergator (241) - California, USA - FEB 15, 2007
pretty good brew. I’m not a fan of spices, so that held this one back a bit. kreepindeth (404) - Oklahoma City, Oklahoma, USA - FEB 10, 2007
Pours a dirty brown. Aroma of Christmas spices. Tastes of pie crust, cookies, gingerbread with a crisp hop bite in the finish.
