Hazy amber pour, with a fizzy head that disappears rather rapidly - mildly oaky nose, with a lot of toffee and treacle sweetness, mild fig, a touch of obviously intentional oxidized character, slightly buttery notes - flavor of semi-dry, biscuity malts up front, followed by light cask-ish notes, moderate toffee, a touch of plum, light chocolate - finish is lightly bitter, with mild buttery notes - quite authentically british - fairly tasty.

Skyview (5706) - Papoose Jct, Minnesota, USA - DEC 11, 2007
Picked up a single 12-oz bottle at the Papago Brewing Company tavern in Phoenix, AZ. Pours a semi-clear, dark copper amber brew with a creamy and thick off-white head that has some good retention and lacing. Aroma of dark caramel malt, some flowery hops, apple skin, and some pitted dark fruits. Taste is medium bodied, light carbonation with flavors of dry caramel malt, apple skin and some dried lemon zest. Finish has a dry bitter aftertaste with a caramel malt and apple skin aftertaste.

A nice attempt at a winter ale, but had a poor musky aftertaste that was unsettling for me.

12 oz bottle from Evergreen Discount into my NBB globe glass. Deep amber and slightly hazy with a nice off-white head. The nose is toasted malts, nutty, caramel, light roast, bitter hops and a touch of spice. Similar flavor, pretty mild and easy to drink, not a ton going on. Average body with a creamy feel, soft carbonation and crisp, clean, light bitter finish.

beerguy101 (5359) - Newark, California, USA - NOV 18, 2002
Dark amber color, medium head. Aroma is cherry. Mild tasting ale, mild malts and slightly spicy, although its more fruity than malty. Kind of an average and mild tasting beer, as winter warmers go. There is a slightly metallic taste. Mouthfeel is a little harsh. Finish is clean. Aftertaste is little bitter and somewhat fruity.

BrewDad (5328) - Olympia, Washington, USA - DEC 4, 2005
Dark bown with a slight haze to the beer. Nutty with a strong Caramel flavor. Liiked the light hops but seemed to be lacking a winter flavor that you look for in this type of beer. Did not get that overall good warm beer flavor that these should and will give off. Better luck next time Bridgeport.

heemer77 (5308) - Urbandale, Iowa, USA - DEC 11, 2008
Lightly hazy dark copper brown body with a light khaki head. The aroma is light and sweet with cake donut and hints of dried apricots. The body is highly carbonated, but it is not distracting. The taste is dried apricots and black tea. There is also some roast and hints of light coffee in the finish. A nice brew that was worth picking up.

Cybercat (5230) - Georgia, USA - DEC 18, 2009
Aroma is quite strong, mainly spicy and slightly sweet, and has an evergreen component making it smell somewhat like a good IPA. It pours a dark, somewhat hazy, warm mahogany with a fairly thick off-white head. Spicy, malty flavor has a decided hoppy undertone and is a little sweet and a little bitter. Texture is fizzy and zingy, yet smooth and slick. Happy whatever-you-celebrate-this-time-of-year!

Bottle, special procurement. Red with a thin white head. Cherries in the nose. Nice balance with slight sweetness rounded by a peppery aftertaste. Not bad.

CapFlu (5101) - Victoria, British Columbia, CANADA - FEB 12, 2003
(Bottle) Pours virtually no head and is a ruby-brown colour. Typical ale aroma of malt and molasses. Initial taste of watery malt, as stated below, then a mid-flavour peak of spice and strong malt. Finishes with a fizzy, hoppy and red wine flavour that fades into dry. Very delightful mix of flavours. Thanks to Crit for this great West Coast experience.
