Bottle. Poured a clear dark brown with a thin beige head. Aroma was full of roasted malts, but a little weak over all. Flavor was a bit weak as well with roasted malts and a bit of alcohol.

Sparkling clear, burnt orange/ruby ale. Cheap aftershave and vineous notes within the nose and flavor along with toffee and leathery, citrusy and evergreen hops. Medium-bodied with a creamy mouthfeel and fizzy carbonation. Short, thin, lightly bitter finish.

DocLock (10458) - Lower Pottsgrove, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 30, 2005
Dark copper pour, with minimal head. Aroma of caramal malt, brown sugar, some vegetals, and even brine. The taste was caramel malty but had funky vegetal off notes that Im hoping were an aberration. I had a hard time finishing this one.

jercraigs (10258) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 4, 2005
Bottle from random gas station in Maine. Brown body, creamy beige head. Green hoppy aroma was unexpected, and only becomes more prominent as the glass goes on. Touch of smokey log cabin in the background. Flavour is a bit odd. Very strong celery characteristics, Mild bitterness over sweet malt hiding below. Vaguely herbal/licorice undertones. Average palate. Bizarrely interesting. Enjoyable but puzling.

UPDATED: FEB 8, 2009 BOTTLE: amber/clear color, aroma is light. A little hoppy, with spice tones and slight nut flavor. Just okay.

alexsdad06 (9934) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - JUN 14, 2014
Bottle at home from backlog notes 07/08. Pours a mostly clear reddish brown color with a medium sized off white head. The aroma and flavor have mild toasted malts, caramel, light citrus, dried fruits with a mild amount of spices. Thin body, flavor is better than I would have expected. I just like my winter warmers to be bigger.
