Let the overhopping begin (or, I should say, continue). Decnt enough Mallt and spice base gets overwhelmed by hops. Not very true to style. Still, it does have its bright points- looks good in the glass and some thought did go into the malt.

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 doesn’t 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 aren’t my favorite. This one was probably the best of the winter ales I’ve had but I still didn’t 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. DIdn’t expect much more from a red hook brew.

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
