Nice, Purchased a single for $1.50 at Whole Foods in Falls Church, VA. Pours a watery brown with a toasted yellowy head. Smells of winter spices, maple and chocolate. Taste is also sweet chocolate, maple syrup, nuts and wintery spices. Full bodied but not overwhelming, even a tad woodsy. Decent brew. goldtwins (4320) - Nesconset, New York, USA - FEB 7, 2007
Tap @ Hop Devil Grill: Poured a clear dark amber color with a beige head. The aroma smelled of fruit and black tea. Lightly fruity flavor with a touch of apple. Mildly sweet. spector (906) - Lancaster, Ohio, USA - FEB 7, 2007
Got some sweet malt in the aroma.Pours a dark copper with red highlights.Has a large off white head.Lots of sweet malts in the flavor.Medium mouthfeel with some malt and slight alcohol in the finish. HogTownHarry (6622) - Toronto (Harbourfront), Ontario, CANADA - FEB 5, 2007
Bottle (12oz). Clear fairly deep copper-amber, small beige creamy/bubbly head. Dry toasted caramel and generic hop bitterness, hint of alcohol and maybe a touch of cocoa powder. Taste is not bad - plenty of sweet roast caramel malt, but not as dry as the aroma, cereal grain and not much alcohol at all - nice smooth buttery sweet malt finish. Sticky, average body, not much hop or astringency to balance what is essentially a slightly spicy malt treat - but I’m not complaining. I’ll drink more of these. drinkinjersey (10) - brooklyn, New York, USA - FEB 4, 2007

Brown body with an off-white head. The aroma is mostly sweet caramel malts with some toasted hints as well. The flavor follows the aroma with a hint of citrus and grassy hops. dkoonce (911) - People’s Republic of Athens, Ohio, USA - FEB 3, 2007
Bottle. Copper-brown, with a thick, loose, off-white head. Spicy aroma, with a evident alcohol. Medium body, with a heavy malty flavor that fades into a metallic finish. No alcohol in the taste. A bit too spicy for me. DocLock (10647) - Lower Pottsgrove, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 29, 2007
Draft from DRE. Medium brown pour with aroma of caramelly malt, some brown sugar, nutmeg, hops. Tastes caramel malty coupled with slight brown sugar and X-mas spicy notes, and a twinge of finishing hops. ganache (5852) - New Jersey, USA - JAN 27, 2007
Bottle. Malty and lightly herbal nose with caramel and a touch of dust. Looks to be the he redder side of amber combined with the browner side of copper, with a short tan head. Crisp mf and a medium body with light alcohol. Cherry accents on the thick layer of malt, caramel and light earth, definitely chewy. Light nuts and red berry. Light, natural fruity sweetness with really no bitter- or sourness. Tasty! zach8270 (4022) - Henrietta, New York, USA - JAN 25, 2007
(draft @ The Old Toad - Rochester, NY) Dark coppery orange color with a creamy tan head. Aroma is loaded with malts and some spices. Flavor is sweet and malty at the beginning with a slightly smokey and roasted middle and some caramel and bitter hops at the finish. Slightly tinny.
