jeremyh70 (1115) - Missouri, USA - JAN 18, 2013
Pours a dark ruby brown with a finger of off white head that dissipates fairly quickly to a film. Leaves some nice lacing on snifter. Can smell caramel and fig on the nose with a hint of apple and some spicing. More of a roasty flavor than expected along with some nutmeg and slight sweet fruit taste. A roasty tasting bitter that borders on astringent. Not too bad a beer but I enjoyed the nose more than the taste. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Pours a nice rusty red color with a thin to medium beige head. The aroma is mostly dark fruits, dates, raisins, some sweetness from the cocoa, toffee, and some caramel notes, brown bread. The flavor is similar to the aroma but the sweetness comes out more stronger than it did in the aroma and the dark fruits aren't as overpowering. The mouth feel is on the medium side and this beer is quite enjoyable.

UPDATED: NOV 19, 2017 Middle of the road winter ale. All the usuals. Nuts, spices and chocolate. Doesn't really mesh as well as it's analogs.

Dark garnet color with a healthy sized head of creamy khaki colored foam. Aromas and flavors of winter spices with dark fruit like figs and dates. Has a solid caramel malt base with some earthy hops included. Very good brew to slide into the holiday season with.

12floz bottle, BBD: 05.04.2018, $1..75 unit cost, mug glass. A dark amber ale with moderate head formation, and an aroma of wild red berries and pine needle. NOt very strong English ale at all, but that's okay. It's a decent hoppy (and fairly malty) dark red ale that has flavors as described. Very much what I'd consider an evergreen beer to be, pine and dirt wrapped in a medium-full body. Not a session beer, but a pretty good stand alone (or intermixed in a session) beer.

Seems to be a well thought of beer. I did not care for it. Can't exactly say why. It was a bit better than I normally like they also had an odd taste, Chichory perhaps ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

12oz bottle in a tulip. Pours brown with a beige head. Aroma of caramel and generic malts with hints of chocolate, some light spiciness, floral hops, and dough. Flavor the same. Average texture. No no no no no.
