, Copenhagen - Amber pour with off white head. Sweet malty and dark fruity aroma and taste, with notes of caramel, toffee, hoppy backing, sweet malty close.
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 doesn’t come out much in the flavor. hopscotch (11113) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - DEC 8, 2003
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. daknole (11049) - Scottsdale, Arizona, USA - OCT 30, 2009
Brown pour. Hoppy aroma with some nuts and caramel. Hops are nicely done in this with caramel and roast also showing themselves well. kp (10882) - Woodstock, Georgia, USA - SEP 1, 2007

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 I’m hoping were an aberration. I had a hard time finishing this one. cubs (10636) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - OCT 23, 2010
Tasted from a 12 oz. bottle purchased in Fort Collins, Colorado. Medium to dark copper toned body with a larger size head. Toasty malty aroma and strong alcoholic flavor with a rough texture. BVery (10510) - Plymouth, Minnesota, USA - JAN 12, 2009
UPDATED: FEB 8, 2009 BOTTLE: amber/clear color, aroma is light. A little hoppy, with spice tones and slight nut flavor. Just okay. alexsdad06 (10434) - 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. jercraigs (10374) - 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.
