Aroma has a slight tang with caramelly malt essence, but decidedly on the light side...Color a pretty dark mahogany with a soft tan head and sticky patch lace---most attractive...Flavor is a smooth blend of sweet roasty malts, clean dry hoppiness and subtle spiciness that punctuates the finish...This is medium-bodied and well-balanced---lively mouthfeel...Overall, this is an all-around quality product. I wish the flavors were a little bit richer, but the balance and basic character are admirable.

Although it doesnt contain pine brows I am reminded of the Anchor Christmas Ale. Couldnt buy this at the brewery but found a dusty bottle at Johns Market have had freshers versions since. Page 175 of Michael Jacksons Great Beer Guide only 404 out 500 Classic Brews to go.

From 12oz bottle to shaker. Pour is a deep copper, very thick tan head. Nose is a little more subtle then I would have thought. Notes of roasted malt, coffee, hops for a little balance. Taste is mostly bitter, medium body. Finishes clean, balanced out with the hops. Nice beer from Full Sail, a little plain but a nice winter beer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

A nice surprise. Aroma is intensely hoppy with malty elements of strawberry and clover honey. Flavor is sweet and malty with an excellent hop balance. Elements of raisin and rhubarb are noticeable. Very full bodied beer with a sleek, very hopped finish. One of my favorite winters!

Had the first five this winter and this one hung in the back of the fridge so its not fresh. I must of forgotten to rate. A really tasty blend of malts here with a winter warming kick of 7%. But perhaps the best part is that Full Sail keeps their prices reasonable.

From NOTES. A: pine, citrus, dark fruit, rich malt, touch of chocolate. A: deep brown with cherry hues. finger of light tan head falls quickly to a sheet of the same. spotty lace. T: Full malt palate up front, with a caramel/toasted malt foundation. Nice floral and bittering hops come through in the climax, along with sweet ethanol. Very well balanced. P: Medium body and carbonation. O: A very good warmer that only shows its abv when it needs to.

Very malty. A good winter ale. A good english strong with some nice hops for balance. The finish is almost sour compared to being bitter. Worth trying.

nice deep amber color, cream head. Quite malty, with a pleasant hop balance. Some nice spices within the hops. Not too bad at all.
