This was one of the original 93 bottles. It seems to have spent 12 years in the back of a cool dark cabinet. Lots of sediment, so it may well have been live. The carbonation is very reduced, and there is a strong hint of sweetness. A subdued nutmeg and nifty raspberry. Seems a very nice and very smooth brown ale. Very English in the presentation. A great memorial to Walter Dobrowney.

The 2001 version of this seasonal is a real gem. A fruity aroma, and the mild berry taste goes superbly with the healthy dosage of hops.

Light nut brown to amber color with a fizzy tan head. Aroma is of hops and raspberry; somewhat toasty. Sweet to then lightly bitter. The nutmeg and raspberry flavors are a little muted. Nice medium palate.

Like the other Petes seasonals, this beer is really nothing special. Pours a dark amber color with a thin beige head. Raspberry, malt and cinnamon in the aroma but in small quantity. Flacor is light raspberry and spice, but again nothing asserts itself. I can take it or leave it.

Interesting beer. A bit too fruity to really be a winter brew. Some spice, some malt, and some hops. Not bad, but just doesnt seem like a winter beer.

DocLock (10465) - Lower Pottsgrove, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 12, 2004
Decent reddish amber color. Aromas of malt, slight raspberry, and spice. Finishes smooth, malty, and fruity. Balanace seems a tad off. Not bad.

Fresh, malty aroma - akin to a bock, thick cream colored frothy head leads to a deep copper color pour. Do not detect any raspberry flavor however, just a good stick to your ribs malty flavor. So a little bit of a ding for the flavor as it does not deliver what it promises. Overall not bad for a fruit beer though. Thanks to Aurelius for bringing this to me.

Ernest (7596) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - DEC 10, 2002
Head is initially average sized, frothy, off-white, mostly diminishing. Body is clear dark amber. Aroma is lighty malty (caramel, toasted grain), with light notes of cherry, raspberry, and cola. Flavor is moderately sweet, lightly bitter, lightly acidic. Finish is lightly bitter, lightly acidic, lightly sweet. Medium body, watery texture, lively carbonation. Its sort of soda-like, not much depth.
