Not as dark and heavy as some of the overly spiced winter ales out there. Medium brown and drinkable.

cmacklin (1015) - Lethbridge, Alberta, CANADA - DEC 11, 2016
330ml bottle. (6.0% ABV) Pours a clear red-amber with a medium, creamy, long lasting, beige head that laces. Sweet aroma of caramel malt, vanilla, molasses, cinnamon and nutmeg. Sweet flavour of caramel malt, molasses, dried fruit, orange peel, vanilla, cinnamon and nutmeg with warming booze in a dry, bitter finish. Medium body with an oily texture and soft carbonation. Not bad.

Bland and nothing exciting. Toffee an caramel roasted malts, light spice. Medium body, rich and heavy but lacking weight and flavour. Meh...

aroma of molasses, caramel, earth. appearance is a reddish brown with a thin ring of foam and spots of lace. Taste is gingerbread, molasses, pine, earth. Palate is medium bodied with a bitter dry finish. Overall- Decent, an interesting take on a spiced winter beer that isnt overspiced or oversweet.

2014-05-19. Dark amber body with a small beige head. Aroma is relatively mild, sweetish malt and light vanilla character. Flavour is sweetish, caramel accents and vanilla undertones. Smooth average plus bodied palate, modest carbonation. Okay. Can via trade with ferris

Reimer96 (1743) - Alberta, CANADA - JUN 15, 2013
Pours a clear amber with a small white head that leaves good lace. Aroma of cinnamon, nutmeg and caramel malts. Taste is caramel, toast, grassy earthy hops and a nice bitterness on the finish. Nice smooth medium full body beer.

Ferris (13843) - Burnaby, British Columbia, CANADA - APR 30, 2013
Draft - Caramel malts with some spice, cinnamon and nutmeg. Amber with a thin white head. Hops, spice and alcohol with a brown sugar backbone. Very different than most winter ales, but has hit most of my buttons. Orange peel and a it of booze in the finish. Well done.

reebtogi (6022) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - JUL 27, 2012
355ml cam pours amber in color with a finger of white head that settles slowly to reveal a nice lacing on the glass. Aroma is caramel with some herbs and spices and a hint of vanilla. Taste is caramel malty sweetness with a moderate hop bitterness with some vanilla and spices in the finish. Medium bodied with some light carbonation. Very mild spices for a winter ale, but overall still a very nice beer that is quite tasty.

(Une courtoisie de papat444) Un liquide cuivr. Un anneau de mousse. Un nez de malts sucrs avec des pices. Une touche fruite. Un got ordinaire, un peu mtallique, avec des relents de cassonade et des pices plus ou moins savoureuses. Une bouche moyennement ronde avec un ptillement modr et une texture la limite huileuse. Une finale malte et chaude.
