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 I’m sure there are better winter brews out there.

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

Deep brown in color with a quickly diminishing tan head, this beer is bland with a bitter bite from the roasted malt. No spice. No character.

We did a blind taste test between this and 4 other Winter Seasonals to objectively determine which one was best. They beers were: Deschutes Jubelale, Anderson Valley Boont Winter Solstice, Big Sky Powder Hound, Alaskan Winter Ale, and Redhook Winterhook. Check it out: http://youtu.be/TJowachG1no

UPDATED: OCT 19, 2013 Pours pretty dark, nice frothy head that lasts forever. Slightly fruity, slightly spicy. Dry. Nothing fantastic, nothing terrible.

I dint know what to expect from this one..I liked the bottle label so I got a 12. It starts rather hoppy & does mellow quickly. To me it almost crosses over to IPA territory. So it may be a good starter for one looking to try something a bit more hoppy but, not so much so that it scares one away from moving foward to try other " hoppy" beers. All in All..I would buy it again & found it to be okay.
