Metallic aroma some hops present. Pretty amber color. Well carbonated thick fluffy head. Some citrus in the flavor a little bitter in the finish. The palate is rather dry and unappealing.

A sub-standard winter ale. Hints of roastiness and earth. Hopsy and therefore a bit bitter.

Juks (225) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - FEB 9, 2017
330ml bottle, thank Jaanis. Pours dark golden caramel, medium sized beige head, doesnt last good. Aroma is malty, caramelly, sweet, hoppy. Taste is hoppy, caramelly, some burnt sugar, malty. metal. Lively carbo, medium body. Nothing special.

ilikestuff (224) - Irving, Texas, USA - JAN 29, 2007
A pretty flavorfull brew for the redhook guys. Pours a light roasted color with not much head, but pretty good lacing. Aroma is sweet with butterscotch and malt. Flavor is a bit different, a spicy hop flavor comes through as the beer warms to drinking temperature, the yeast can be a little too fruity though.

ztrvz (218) - st paul, Minnesota, USA - DEC 6, 2003
no point in drinking this from a trappist glass... slighty hoppy odor. small head that disappears quickly. slightly sweet, a bit nutty, with some hops nipping at your tongue eventually. much thinner than i expected. ok. definitely not robust. -1 point for false advertising. :>

Medium red/dark amber with a small to negligible head. Nice hop nose with hints of your traditional spices (which may or may not be in this "strong ale")and maybe some fruit. The body is pretty thin, and this isn't a warming beer--which is the point of winterfest ales--to warm you up. The mouthfeel is thin--a nice malt/hop finish.

dliberto (217) - Hampstead, Maryland, USA - NOV 14, 2014
Drank from the bottle. Aroma consists of nuts, caramel, toffee, and pine. Taste is resin, metal, nuts, and caramel. Medium bodied beer with moderate carbonation and a slight sticky mouth feel.

Bottle. Great aroma of spices. Laced ok. Dark rugby brown, tasted nice but disappointed because the Sam Adams winterlager was much better i thought. Like Christmas in a bottle...I would reccomend Winterhook though!

Bottle: pours a nice dark amber red with a nice tan head. spicy nutty roasty chocolatey carmel aroma. taste is of spice, carmel, chocolate with some nuttiness. fruity. and creamy but a little thin
