clear reddish-orange color, thin head dissipating almost immediately. aroma is a bit fruity with some apple and pear flavors. overall a thin beer, one i'd hardly call "robust"

Heavily heavily spiced. Extremely anisey with a fat sweet finish. Yuck....

clear copper, light but clinging head. tinny aroma. the first sip, i was like "ew, tastes like amber bock mixed with bud", but after it sat out for a while it wasn't as bad as i initially thought. not spicy at all, but a nice malty flavor. fizzy but somewhat watery palate. it'll do in a pinch i suppose.

The head was thin and didn't last long. The feel on my palate wasn't impressive. It has a nice fruity flavor, but it isn't very strong. It isn't my favorite winter brew.

smells of a garbage can. dark amber color. slightly hoppy aftertaste but mostly watery. the aftertaste surely turns into some kind of funk though

Wakie (612) - Centreville, Virginia, USA - DEC 9, 2003
A basic, fairly boring ale. Heavy hop flavoring that was most empty of anything else left me thoroughly dissatisfied. Addendum: One winterhook = one heavy hangover. Normally I'm immune to these, but man ... this one is bad. I'll never touch one of these again.

IPFreely (1470) - Sanborn, New York, USA - DEC 15, 2003
2002 bottle. Poured a slightly dark amber color, cream color head. Some dark malt with some tangy hops. Light to medium mouthfeel. Lacking.

badgerben (5283) - Blaine, Minnesota, USA - JAN 4, 2004
Very sub-par winter ale. Aroma was more like an over hopped pils. Very thin and a tad bitter. Some citrus notes as well. Not too good.

ToadMan (559) - Washington, Washington DC, USA - FEB 5, 2004
Dark brown/amber color. Aroma is lightly hoppy and quite spicy. Flavor starts off malty with strong berry tones. Then the sweetness overwhelms you before giving way to a lighter hoppier finish.

MAP (1133) - Lakewood, Ohio, USA - OCT 19, 2004
Dark red, practically brown body and a thin head. The aroma is an english malty with some roasted malt, nutty and a little tart. The mouthfeel begins rather strong, but then flakes out a bit and has a bitterness that isnt all that pleasing. Flavor is mostly malt sensation, but nothing too great.
