Caytinator (1005) - Waco, Texas, USA - DEC 5, 2014
12oz bottle. Pours a nice deep amber color with a tan head and good lacing, sticky. You can tell there is some hops in the aroma, but they’re floral varieties I think. The taste is quite good, lots of biscuit, some caramel, and a little hop bite -- all the spiciness of this beer comes from the hops instead of added spices. Good winter warmer, a little different, but good!

Nsanders (1172) - St Paul, Minnesota, USA - NOV 27, 2014
Bottle. Red orange with a thin white cap. Caramel, herbal hops, mineral water and bread. Taste is lightly sweet with a dry plantlike bitterness. Body is lighter with a fizzy feel.

Julie says well it is okay there is a touch of non hoppy air freshener at the end. It is okay. She gives a 3.0

TheGB (579) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - NOV 18, 2014
Light aroma of caramel malt and hops. Taste is good with caramel, vanilla and grass. Nice palate.

maltman53 (472) - Corrales, New Mexico, USA - NOV 17, 2014
Bottle pours a beautiful red-mahogany color with a huge, persistent, rootbeer float head. Caramel malt, earthy low hop profile on the nose. Palate is English malts, ending in a mildly bitter finish. Overall, okay beer that’s far from great.

Draft! Aroma is malty with some bitter. Appearance is brown with a creamy tan head. Taste is a bitter with some malt. Palate is pretty neutral. Overall, a decent beer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Crash_the_dog (181) - Fairway, Kansas, USA - NOV 12, 2014
Really pretty mahogany pour, with a quickly dissipating creamy head. I didn't read the description before buying, so I was surprised by the lack of spice (or flavor, for that matter) in this "winter" beer. Great ever recent mouthfeel, but really understated flavor - slight woody notes, a little molasses, maybe, and slight malt. Really reminded me of something that you'd be served at a big chain brewpub in an airport. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Headbanger (4021) - Aurora, Illinois, USA - NOV 11, 2014
12oz bottle 11/11/14 (Courtesy of RSRIZZO)-44° in English Pint-Pours amber with a huge off white head. Aroma of hops, malt, and spices. Taste of the same with hops and caramel on the back end. This medium bodied brew is well balanced and quite tasty.
