Six from Reubens. Dark ruby red, thick lasting head, lots of lacing. Smells of raisin bread and hops. Warm comforting savoriness for a cold February night.

Off-white head that dissipates slowly. Lovely dark red color in the glass, sweet, delicate nose with a tinge of hops. Tends more toward the hop than malt, which is nice for a winter ale. Decent bite, but not overwhelming in any way. Nicely done.

Bottle pours reddish brown with a medium white head. Aroma is citrusy, caramel, with a slight hint of alcohol. Taste is primarily caramel malts, cinnamon, and nutmeg with a well-balanced bitter finish. Im not normally a fan of holiday ales but this one was enjoyable.

Dark amber color, spicy candylike aroma. Caramel malty flavor. Nice but unspectactular winter.

This is one of those good to drink holiday beers if it is what you have available. If you have had many Winter Ales this one will leave a little disappointed.

Bottle. Pours an ebony color with a one-inch tan head. Malty, somewhat floral aroma with a hint of evergreen. Taste is malty, a bit roasted, with a slightly bitter aftertaste. Good hops balance. It has a deep flavor, with lots of character, that really speaks to the tastebuds. Soft mouthfeel. I’d like to pair this brew with a hearty stew or a stroganoff dish.

12 ounce bottle. This ale was a beauty. It poured a brilliant dark red with an inch thick cream-colored head. The head stuck around and left some nice lacing behind. The aroma and flavor were both a mixture of molasses, light grain, resin, light woodiness, brown sugar, and some undetermined spices. There was also a subtle dark fruit flavor that I am almost convinced was cranberry. The initial flavor was a heavy sweetness that allowed some bitterness to squeak in on the finish. Overall, I would describe this ale as "heavy." It sat heavy on the tongue and against the palate, with only soft carbonation to lighten the heaviness. It was heavy on flavor, balancing malts and hops rather well. It was heavy on its malts. This is what a winter ale should taste like!

HoppedHead (106) - seattle, Washington, USA - APR 21, 2005
pours deep mahogany, with a thin head, sweet aroma of plums and rasins which carry through in the flavor, rasiny with a balnced bitterness, a very drinkable x-mas ale

UPDATED: FEB 3, 2003 Deep red with small, quickly diminishing head. Spicy and malty, with a good deal of burnt flavors. Still has a bit of hop kick , especially for a Christmas ale, but they aren't overdone.
