NVBeer232 (467) - Reno, Nevada, USA - MAR 27, 2006
bottled 11/30/04 Copper colored ale with nice sitcky lacing. Malty aromas with nice traces of cookies, carmel, spice, and pine needles. Chewy malty body with some apricot and tea-like spice on the finish. Solid winter ale. I wish I would have drank this beer a little sooner.

Derek881 (1267) - Denver, Colorado, USA - MAY 6, 2016
Poured from the bottle into a pint glass to drink. The beer had a cloudy amber color with some sediment and a creamy tan head with good retention. Its aroma featured a blend of caramel and barley malt along with some lighter grainy and grassy hops. The taste was lightly sweet and malty with a bit of coffee, along with some modest bitter and sour grainy tones. It was a fairly wet and watery beer with a lighter mouthfeel and lower carbonation.
