GABF-on tap-pours a thin light tan head with brown/dark red color. Taste is sweet, mild, not bad. Mild carbonation.

BVery (11458) - Plymouth, Minnesota, USA - NOV 9, 2012
Bottle. Really solid winter warmer - super easy drinking and flavorful, but not a palate challenger. Malty, mild dark fruit, and just a hint of spice. Good stuff.

hopscotch (11433) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - OCT 7, 2002
It's been over a year since I tried this beer. I really enjoyed it, but the commercial description will have to do. If you like other winter warmers / American strong ales that i have rated highly, this one won't dissapoint you.

alexsdad06 (11223) - West Chester, Ohio, USA - JAN 3, 2014
Bottle. Pours a brown color with a small off white head. The aroma and flavor have caramel and toffee, some bread, dark dried fruits, with mild spices. Smooth texture and surprisingly not too bad.

3.7
DocLock (11189) - Lower Pottsgrove, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 6, 2005
Dark brown (no ruby) pour, with good lacing. Aroma of spices (cinnamon, nutmeg), malt, some hops. Tastes spicy, with malt, nutmeg, brown sugar, and cognac at the finish. Somewhat dense, firm palate.

3.7
daknole (11048) - Scottsdale, Arizona, USA - JAN 9, 2009
Bottle. A brown pour and small off whit head leads to a caramel and toffee bomb. Malty as hell with tons of bread, molasses and dark dried fruit on the nose and on the tongue. I was surpsried how good this was.
