Bottle poured a clear tarnished copper. Aroma of bread, citrus and very piney, almost like a cleaning solvent. Bready flavour with malt and spice. Hoppy flavour with a metallic tang. This doesnt remind me of any English strong ales.

Clear brown/amber. No head. Mild aroma, toffee if any. "Drinkable", I guess. Mild if any hops, slight metallic flavor. Won’t buy next year.

Winter ales usually arent my favorite. This one was probably the best of the winter ales Ive had but I still didnt care too much for it.

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.

Caramel malts. Harsh finish. Completely average beer. DIdnt expect much more from a red hook brew.

OKplus (787) - Oklahoma, USA - MAY 23, 2013
A - Pours a clear chestnut body with red highlights. 2 fingers of off-white head. S - Yeasty, candied grain, caramel malt, brown sugar, candied orange. T - Toasty grain, brown sugar, spicy pale malt, brown bread crust, a light dusting of cocoa powder, caramel malts, nutty yeast, cascade-like hop creating a citrus edge against the malt. Finishes crisp and semi-dry. M - Light side of medium, medium carbonation, slick but drys out on the finish. Light and mellow winter warmer. This is a good all around holiday beer. The hops and cocoa seem to give it a holiday spice without being forced. Good stuff for $7.99. Serving type: bottle 11-26-2011

Dark brown with a light brown head. Roast grain aroma with just a touch of evergreen. Flavor is similar to aroma. Dry, thin and nothing particularly festive about it. Seems to be more of an American brown ale.

Okay beer. Pours a nice bronze amber color. Not much of an aroma here and a rather bland taste. It leaves a lot to be desired ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bottle. Pours an amber color with white head. Caramel, toast, malty, slight booze aromas. Malty, toast, slight metallic flavors. Pretty blah, pass.
