Bottle. Pours copper with a slightly off-white head that leaves web lacing. Aroma is mostly malty with caramel, bread, and cereal hitting the nose. There are hints of grassy hops though. Flavor is toffee, caramel, nuts, grassy earthy hops, and cinnamon. On the palate the beer is medium bodied, soft carbonation, with a lingering dryness. Overall an enjoyable and highly drinkable beer. I wish the flavors would linger more, the beer just quickly fades away.

Grassy hop aromas. Nice deep amber color. Hops hit you first....then a creamy malt flavor that gets covered too quickly with hoppy bitternss to notice any sweetness or other hidden flavors...detect some black liquorice. Finish is rather long for my taste.

Chudwick (2967) - Taylor Mill, Kentucky, USA - OCT 25, 2012
12oz bottle - pours clear amber with thin tan head and modest lacing. Nose is herbal or grassy hops. Flavor adds spruce, light roast character, and caramel malts. Mod sweetness and moderate bitterness. Interesting balance. Light enough to quench the thirst, but flavorful enought to keep me guessing. I had no expectations for this beer since the bottle and packaging were not very helpful in describing the beer. Glad I went for it and the 6% ABV. Wil enjoy these on this chilly camping trip.

JFParnell (68) - Washington, USA - SEP 30, 2012
UPDATED: OCT 26, 2013 Cask conditioned sample at the Redhook brewery in Woodinville, so this is the best that it gets. Natural overtones of dish soap and toe jam permeate this beer with just a hint of castor oil. Nasty aftertaste makes the drinker wish that they had brought some mouthwash with them. Head lays flatter than piss on a platter, and the brown color reminds one of dead leaves. Overall a very undrinkable beer, and well worthy of the Redhook name.

Pours a deep copper color with amber highlights. Smell is of malts and spice. Taste is bready, malts, nutmeg and cinnamon. Overall a good quality beer.

Fatehunter (2412) - Corbett, Oregon, USA - APR 27, 2012
Poured into a glass stein. Copper, transparent with a finger of head. Roasted malt smell, almost smoky. Good malt all the way through, big bitter at the end. Balanced. Bubbly (not too much), medium body. Perfect winter drinker and quite easy to throw back a few with no problems.

KajII (800) - Macon, North Carolina, USA - APR 25, 2012
Bottle. The pour was a clear copper brown with a huge (3-4 finger) off white rocky head that had great retention, finally reducing to a large foamy cap and had some fair spotty lacing. The aroma was of toasted caramel malts, spruce hops and a doughy yeast with notes of citrus (orange), toffee and dark fruit (plums and raisins). The taste was moderately sweet and had a nice malty feel with hints of toffee and citrus at first and then became mildly hoppy with a note of dark fruit and a slight bitter finish. The flavor lasted only a short while with the fruity hoppy taste fading relatively quick. Mouthfeel was light to medium in body and mildly dry in texture with a soft carbonation. Overall a decent Winter Warmer that was very drinkable, although it is nothing over the top...

copper color, aroma of pine, citrus hops, caramel, toffee, flavor is pretty much the same, with roasted nuts, cinnamon, highly drinkable but nothing exciting
