Smells somewhat musky, but has a great spicy taste that is signature of a good winter brew. Can definitely taste the hops that gives this beer its bold start but lingering finish.

12 oz bottle. Pours dark amber with a white head. Aroma of pine with some citrus . Has a medeum body with a slighty malty finish. Has a decent hop profile. Not as dark and heavy as i would like in a winter beer. It coms of more like a hoppy ESB.

This is a really nice seasonal entry from the folks at Redhook. Not crazy strong like a lot of winter brews. Hops at the start remind me of Flying Dog Pale, but the finish is much stronger and balanced. Check it out if you can get it.

Very subtle aroma... very subtle flavor. Slight orange-like spicy notes with a medium-ish body.

A decent amber with fruity esters and a light ctirus hop nose candy. Very big carmel taste and warm mouth palape. Some type of spices finish off this decent beer

Its not what Im expecting from a winter ale. Its more like an IPA to me because of the strong, and somewhat bitter hops taste, which Im really not that fond of. Ive bought IPAs before and some of them are enjoyable when Im in the right mood for them, but this one has a hops taste that doesnt have alot of character and reminds me more of soap. But its definitely drinkable. I can easily finish this six pack, and if someone gives me some, Ill happily consume that as well, but I probably wont buy any more of it, because its just not that memorable to me, and its not what I envision as a winter ale, which is usually less better.

Bottle. Poured cola-brown with little head, but at least what little head there was stayed there for a while. Smell and flavor is of caramel, spice, and sour cherries. Watery finish leaves something to be desired. Decent, but Im sure there are better winter brews out there.

Nice dark color. Great thick taste. Good amount and color of head. Good amount of alcohol.
