12 oz bottle poured clear, red-amber with a very good head.
Malty, very lightly spicy (perhaps just from hops). Chocolate by the finish, is quickly joined by a hint of coffee. Aftertaste is dominated by dark roasted malts.
O: decent but unexceptional brown ale. kevinator (2205) - The Colony, Texas, USA - MAR 15, 2014
Decent beer. Malty aroma with some roasted essence. Woody brown color with a normal head. English maltiness with a subdued hops presence. Some roasted and caramel notes. Decent weight with some smoothness. Easy to drink and filling. Good for the season. Absteinmetz (4) - - FEB 22, 2014 does not count

This is clearly the post-ghost Ebenezer; a warm, malty beer that pairs well with, fireplaces, couches and light snow. A great way to wait out the winter.
Nose: caramel, bread, dough, vanilla. Color: dark amber, clear, with a tan, pillowy head. Warm, medium bodied, caramel, vanilla, with a hint of chocolate and slightly bready flavor, balanced with a trace of hops and spices. Lightly carbonated with a pleasant, full mouthfeel. stevoj (5036) - Boise, Idaho, USA - JAN 20, 2014
Nice and malty with s touch of spice (nutmeg?) , makes this a nice cold weather brew. Smooth, Aroma is malt and spice, taste is more of the same, dark amber/light brown with thin beige head, Just the right amount of spice makes this one of the better ones.

Glass: Firestone restaurant pint glass
From: BevMo in Mission Valley (San Diego), Calif.

Poured a dark caramel brown semi-clear color with 2-to-3 fingers of khaki white head. Good amount of circular foamy lacing on the sides of the glass. Great retention on the top all the way down.
Smelled brown sugar, caramel, toffee, roasted nuts and nutmeg. Some type of hops in there that balances the malts nicely, but couldn’t figure it out.
Tasted similar to the nose with brown sugar, toffee, caramel, nutmeg and roasty nuts. Very smooth.
Medium body. Creamy-to-sticky texture. Average carbonation. Long, smooth, somewhat warming finish.
A pretty decent beer. Not quite a winter warmer for me, more like a winter lukewarmer, but good nonetheless.

On tap @ City Beer. Mahogany pour with an off-white head. Nose is sweet toffee and dark fruits such as raisin and plum. A decent caramel note, some light spice, and plenty of toast. Flavor is dominated by the sweet malt base. Lots of toffee and caramel. Heavy dark fruit character and a bit of syrup. A touch of spice and roast. jmcgavin12 (492) - Madison, USA - DEC 30, 2013
Dark tan pour with minimal head and an aroma of malt and slight sweet caramel. A sweet strong malt backbone with a full body. A great winter warmer for a cold football Sunday larryLSB (533) - La Selva Beach, California, USA - DEC 29, 2013

Bready caramel aroma, nutty with earthy hops
Pours a cloudy burnt sienna color with small disappearing head
Bready flavor with earthy floral hops. Carmel
Medium bodied medium co2, sweet bready finish
Pretty simple brew but I really like the way everything blends together. I can see myself drinking a few of these.
