On tap at Ohanas in Seattle, Washington. Dark amber in color. I was immediately surprised by the effervescent head, very unusual. Aroma was dominated by a robust malt, which gave way to a similarly robust molasses flavor, with an almost earthy nutty flavor to it. Id definitely go back to this one again.

One of my favorite winter beers. The easiest drinking of them all and one I wish i could have year round. Deep amber color with white head. Primary taste is a toasty burnt malt flavor and spicy hops blend together into a great bitterness. As bitter as an IPA but not just from the hops and a good malt backbone. I love it.

Huge caramel raisin aroma and flavor, strong mineral depth with a bright malty finish. A really nice representation of an english strong ale!!

Dark reddish-brown with a tightly knit tan head. Understated aromas, brown sugar and nutmeg. This beer is smooth and malty with holiday spice flavors and a little hop note in the finish. Complex and tasty, but lacking a bit in aroma and, for a Stong Ale, strength.

Another solid offering. Pours a dark ruby head with creamy and moderately persistent head. Roasted malts clearly on the nose with hops coming through. Taste is a bright burst of mild chocolate and cherry. Hopping gives a lot of berry cheer in a long aftertaste. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Nice thick body, very creamy in the mouth. the flavor is very subdued and friendly. the alcohol is warming in the end and as i exhale. a few spices are evident but there is nice hop flavor and bitterness in the end.

I didnt think much of the ale at beerfest last week in Orlando. It was labeled a winter beer on the table. Not as good as their lager

Bottle. Root beer color with a thin off-white head that fades to a ring. Aromas of roasted malts, pine, and citrus. Flavors of bitter chocolate and orange peel that starts out sweet and finishes acidic and dry for a beer of this type. Cant shake the hops. Fairly thin mouthfeel and moderate carbonation. Hides alcohol well. Good, but not enough malt flavors for me in a winter seasonal, or for an old ale any time of year.

Poured a nice warm brown color with a whispy tan head. Strong bitter smell. Spicy assault that opens up into a bitter body. Very nice.

Pours from 12 oz bottle a dark brown with offwhite head. Fragrance is malt,and spices. Taste is very slightly sweet with hints of cinnamon and fruit. Echos a citrusy bitter orange and caramel. A very enjoyable winter ale.
