Pours a greenish amber; don’t remember much about the head. The aroma is malty and warm. Taste is roasty, nutty, chocolate, and a bit smokey. This is a nice "sit around the fire on a cool winter’s night" beer. bluemooner (657) - East Bethel, Minnesota, USA - FEB 7, 2010
Pours a rich brownish-amber with a thin, frothy, off-white head. Aroma is caramel malts and some spices. Taste is malty with hints of rye, caramel, raisins, spices, and some breadiness. Medium bodied with low to medium carbonation. Pretty good overall; essentially a brown ale. jimmack34 (647) - Lancaster, Ohio, USA - NOV 29, 2008
Bottle. Pours a rich amber with a generous fluffy white head. Smells malty with some grassy hops. Tastes very aggressive for a malt, a sharp and semi spicy malt presence with a balancing hop presence. Very good . tons of flavor and very drinkable. nsquishee (641) - Richfield, Minnesota, USA - NOV 23, 2010
Malty aroma that smells like bread. Pours a rich brown color that has a tinge of red. Flavors of rye, raisins, spices, and roasted malts. Nice crisp mouth feel with a bitter finish. Nice spiced beer. podey (638) - New York, New York, USA - JAN 30, 2013

Clear red-brown winter brew with tons of flavor. A nice hoppy finish dominates the palate with hints of raisins, caramel, spruce and smoked malt. Head is creamy and abundant when swirled. Head holds it shape for a nice long period showing some full body and complexity. Overall a very good and drinkable winter lager. weitz15 (622) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - NOV 16, 2010
Light, malty aroma. Mahogony pour with a medium frothy white head. Flavor of roasted malts and very light on the hops. Light spice presence, but this would be better with more bite.
