Deep clear red in color with a creay head. I was lucky enough to have this wonderfu brew on tap. Has an expresso after thought that makes this complex beer begging you to drink more of it. I enjoyed this so much that I bought a growler to take back with me, but it did survive being left alone in a hotel room with me and an empty pint glass. Very nice beer

A sweet malt darkness accompanied by a earthy hoppiness and holiday spice. Deep mahogany body moderately carbonated, and a tan off-white thick head.

2002 bottling. Healthy head of tannish white sea foam. Clear, dark amber with a hint of red. Light vanilla aroma sneaking through the malts. Not as much malt flavor as I remember it having last year. A bit acidic and light mouthfeel. Some hoppiness. Oh hell, where are the malts?

Spicy, fruity, and somewhat roasty aroma. Pours deep amber with decent co2. Starts sweet, quickly to malty then a nice fruity hop-ness, ending with the spicy. A very complex ale; I dig it. Nice body, but a bin thin for the style. Overall a very good winter ale; Id buy it again.

Kind of fruity, banana like esters, strong body and good aftertaste. The flavor hangs around mid-tongue as the carbonation rolls off the tongue. Slightly dry but well built. It is also a beautiful shade of red with a mild carbonation and minimal yet lasting head. Indeed it does warm those winter nights. Or maybe it is just the woodstove I am leaning on. This makes any Ebeneezer smile.

Ebenezer Ale has a great malty/caramel aroma. Taste is almost identical with rich flavors in every sip. There wasnt much carbonation which makes this beer perfect for winter relaxation.

BelvidereIPA (140) - Belvidere, Illinois, USA - DEC 11, 2011
Bottle to pint glass. Pours a dark copper, with a distinct red tint. Limited, white head that dissipates quickly. Lot of malts, with a roasted caramel scent.

Quiver (140) - Augusta, Georgia, USA - OCT 20, 2005
Bottle Conditioned - Surprising good winter ale. Pours a burnt ruby read. Great head, great lacing. I probably drank it a few degrees too cold. So I started off good, and got better. Taste is somewhat complex. bittersweet chocolate, leather, peach, and maybe a few tiny notes of cherry. a perfect mix of not being overbaring, but not being boring either. Lots of different tastes going on, but none of them overpower your tasebuds. It had more carbonation than I expected, but still maintained a good palet. Good Brew

rotoguru (126) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - DEC 28, 2006
UPDATED: DEC 30, 2006 Reddish brown with thick tan head that lasts. Blah blah brown ale, roasty, blah blah blah. I guess I had high expectations after reading some other ratings. There are no sweet sugared plums and cherries to be had... there was no fruitcake, but thats a good thing since that is not something I want my beer to taste like. Alas, no tidings of joy or goodwill to all men. Maybe I just need a few more helpings of the Christmas Spirit. Overall, a glorified brown ale but a decent beer none-the-less.
