Draft (was that the problem?) Barely discernible aroma, maybe a slight syrupy smell. Odd flavor, slightly sweet - sticky sweet aftertaste that is not very pleasant. Not very enjoyable.

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.

This came up when I scanned the mud slinger brown ale. Brown pour (obviously) smooth sweet flavor, great cold weather brew.... ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Light hops, a little after taste, but pleasant. A little harsh while slightly warmer than ice cold, which I think this beer is better served at.

CharmCityCrab (249) - Maryland, USA - DEC 17, 2013
Moderately malty character with a bit of roasted malt and hops (Burnt pine?). Reminds me a little of an Amber Ale, with just a tad more hop presence than is typical for the style (You won’t confuse this for an IPA, though). Relative to other winter warmers, a little less sweet and a little more bitter, but fairly balanced. Nothing special, but nothing that will turn you against the winter mix pack from which it comes. Old fashioned bottle design. I don’t know if one would call this a stubby, but its definitely not a long neck.

Livendadream (249) - New Mexico, USA - JAN 18, 2014
Btl pours a beautiful clear brown color, creamy off white head that leaves great lacing but dissipates quickly. Smells of light roasted malt,toffee and floral hops and a hint of chocolate. Tastes of malt,chocolate, a tad bit of toasted bread and hops.Light to medium body, creamy texture, soft carbonation, dry,bitter finish. Good beer, nice malty taste with a crisp and clean hop flavor. Decent winter offering from redhook.

Draft. Pours deep red/brown with thin white foam. Nice roasty, malty backbone with a hop kick at the end reminiscent of pine and spice. This is a very nice winter beer.

Unexciting. The 2000 bottling seems to have fared better in these ratings.

Dark brownish red in color. Poured without much of a head. Smells yeasty but yummy. Metallic aftertaste.
