Good beer, nothing outstanding. Aroma is dominated by malt and light spice. Medium bodied, with light carbonation, malty/spicy, with a slight burn in the finish.

bottle. pours mahogany white thin head. nose is soapy, dull sweet malt and hop bitters. mouth is light carbo sweet amber malt, slight roastd barley, hop bittery finish. overall nothing terrible here, on note with other winters and by far not the worst decision you can make, whenst it comes to such.

Dark brown pour with a short head. Nice hop/malt balance with pine and spice balancing toffee sweetness. Quite nice.

UPDATED: DEC 20, 2015 This is a re-rate from the final month of 2K15. Again, poured from a 12 ounce brown glass bottle into an english pint glass (which means I opened another bottle to top it off to a true pint) and proceeded to explore. Some winter ales need to be available year round. The Full Sail carton sez "Available for 90 days only", so, enjoy, imbibe when here and wait 275 days or so until the circle twists back. Glad its back for the holidaze.

From bottle. Dark and dense, with toasty malt notes, hints of chocolate and mild spice. A decent holiday offering.

HeadyDE (785) - Delaware, USA - DEC 6, 2012
Dark brown almost black hue..slight head on edges..aroma is rather nondescript was expecting a much more noticed and pleasant nose..but not evident..faint malty nose presence if you try hard..palate and mouthfeel are fairly bland..picking up traces of licorice and anise and a bit of spice..alcohol is decently disguised..generic offering comes to mind..

Draft at Pony with James, Andy, Feng. Pour was not memborable, very thin head, and I dont remember there being very much of an aroma either. This was thin-bodied and easy drinking, but wasnt a "good" beer in any other way. I tasted a little bit of a grainy maltiness.

Draft at pony bar with Brendan, Andrew and Feng. Pours a deep murky amber with light off white lacing. Pours a hazy amber with no head. Aroma is faint malt, pretty bland. Mouthfeel is medium to thin with bland notes of malt, fruit, pils, light cocoa and spice.

Deep copper, clear, off-white head. Aroma of toasted malts, come caramel, light spicy hops. Flavor features nutty, biscuity, toasty malt with a little toffee sweetness, and some piney hop flavor late. Medium-full bodied and lightly warming. Good winter warmer.

JDBaker11058 (2026) - Maryland, USA - NOV 26, 2012
Appearance: slightly muddy cola brown, with a short tan head. Aroma: slightly piney, catty hops up front, over a caramel and brown sugar spine. Taste: on first taste, its pretty bitter, with zingy, spicy hops dominating; just a few sips in and the sweet, sugary, bready malts take over with strong notes of brown sugar and molasses. Finish: sweet and slightly spicy, with a bit of a hop zing and almost candi sugar note hiding with some booze underneath . Notes: Started off like a traditional strong ale, ended up almost like a slightly hoppy dubbel. Ive seldom had a beer that changed character so completely and so suddenly. All in all, not a bad brew.
