12 ounce bottle from a sampler. Pours a hazy dark rusty red color with a medium head. Decent head retention and lacing. Aroma of caramel, fruity notes, a bit of chocolate and bitter, peppery hops. Taste is caramel, cinnamon, bitter leafy hops. Medium bodied.

Extremley nice fruity aroma with hints of coriander. Taste is definitely a strong bitter with an average finish. Almost peppery on the palate.

Dogbrick (12578) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - DEC 18, 2002
2002 bottle: I wasnt expecting too much from this one and I was not let down. It definitely needs to warm a little for any flavor to come through. Pours a dark amber color with minimal head and lace. Aroma is lightly matly and spicy. Flavor is slightly nutty with a little butterscotch or caramel but overall it is thin. Not as robust as I like my winter ales.

hopdog (12083) - Lansdale, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 12, 2004
On tap (12/10/03). Poured a dark Amber color with a very small tan head. Slight hoppy taste. Not a bad beer but I prefer their ESB.

"a nice nutty malt flavor greets you, but it kind of goes off the tracks after that. better than their average beer, but with the abundance of winter ales out there, this one is easily passable."

shrubber85 (11215) - Greenville, Indiana, USA - DEC 2, 2006
Bottle. Very strong pine/cedar resin aroma - hard to detect anything else. Clear medium amber color with small head. Moderate malt and strong hops flavor with really only a hint of the pine - from the aroma, I was afraid it would taste like Pinesol. Very interesting how it has such a strong pine aroma but it doesnt come out much in the flavor.
