Pours a four-finger khaki head that fades quickly leaving some lace. Crystal clear, deep amber color. Good carbonation and medium bodied. Piney, citrusy nose and flavor is spicy citrus, dry light bitter finish. Unusual winter brew. $2.35 for a 12oz bottle from Berts Better Beers Hooksett, NH

There once was a beer from Nantucket,
which sucked so much ass I said "fuck it."
Scratching an itch, while I drain-pour this bitch,
if this wasnt so bad I couldve drunk it.

Bottle. Gorgeous dark ruby-tinged copper. Tall, foamy tan head. Aroma is toasted malt, caramel and light spice. Taste is caramel, earthy hops, toasted malt, soft spice, light nuttiness and soft hoppy bitterness. Body is medium with a soft, bubbly carbonation and mild stickiness. Ends with more toasted malt notes, chewy caramel, light spice and light, bitter hops.

GL2814 (361) - New York, New York, USA - JAN 26, 2013
A typical winter ale in that it has notes of nutmeg, cinnamon, and pours a deep dark color with a mild head. Not to shabby.

A little caramel and spice aromas. Bitter spice and fruit flavors. Overall a decent beer.

12 oz bottle. Cola like appearence with a one finger, creamy off white head. Typical winter warmer spicey scent. Cinnamon, nutmeg etc. A little bit of pine bitterness in the taste. Some dark malty sweetness. More spice. Moderate in body. Along the lines of Harpoons Winter Warmer, but sharper and more astringent. It was ok.

Dacrza (940) - Great Meadows, New Jersey, USA - JAN 12, 2013
Situation: Shark Tank Friday--the best hour of TV deserves a beer rating! Glassware: Kisatskys Tavern pint... Appearance: nice nut brown body; thick, creamy head reminiscent of a snow drift (three-finger crater-filled mound!)... Aroma: vanilla, berry (?!), syrupy and sugary--a complex hodgepodge that cannot be verified as the beer glass drains... Palate: warming--no abv on the label?! A turn-off--and then the beer finishes in a flourish of cough syrup...oh no... Taste: oddly thick vanilla and syrup/nut taste--a bit too medicinal to be considered an attractive holiday option.... Overall: "Gnar-Gnar Lumpkin" sounds fun when you say it to your spouse aloud, but he sticks in your throat and nostrils like a liquid sasquatch; divulge the alcohol content, Cisco, and we may have reason to see past the muddle that is this beers body and flavor...not sure "cold, fresh, and wicked cool" isnt longhand for Coors Heavy...

JK (6058) - St. Louis Park, Minnesota, USA - JAN 11, 2013
Brown. Flavor of brown sugar and some caramel, with underlying spices, and perceivable, but very light hops, in addition to the very light spiciness. Very much a rich brown ale. Not bad.

badgerben (5058) - Blaine, Minnesota, USA - JAN 10, 2013
Dark brown color with a small head. Light malty aroma. Flavor of brown sugar. Moderate bitterness. Something that tastes like very dark caramel.

UPDATED: JUN 4, 2014 One of the worst beers I have ever tasted. Couldnt finish the bottle. I can only call it medicinal, and not in a good way.
