Got this in the winter special 12 pack. Nice hoppy smell. Decent head. Amber color. Flavor was awesome with a slight bitter hop bite at the end of the bottle. Great stuff. IPFreely (1470) - Sanborn, New York, USA - DEC 2, 2003
Orangish brown color, cream colored head. Malty aroma with some toffee and some spice. Similar flavor profile with the spice being a bit more pronounced in the finish. Medium body. Pretty good. Steib (613) - Queen Creek, Arizona, USA - NOV 30, 2003
Reddish-brown color with a fragrant malty aroma. A sweet and spicy taste even a litle tart. The malt character could be a little heavier to blend with the spices. Still it warms the soul, a nice offering from Sam. OD40oz (774) - Box Elder, South Dakota, USA - NOV 28, 2003
This was a really good sam adams beer. I thought it had a sweet aftertaste hayden1215 (319) - Ohio, USA - NOV 28, 2003
Amber in color. Flavor is malt with caramel and cinnamon. Best served cold, it seemed to lose flavor as it warmed.

This beer caught me off guard a bit, i was not expecting to much. After reading the bottle i though how can they take all the flavors in one beer but the did and it was goood. winterlager (101) - Orchard Park, New York, USA - NOV 27, 2003
Nice spicy aroma...lots of scents are captured. This is one of the better selections in the winter pack. But you really would only want the 2 you get in the pack!!! whaleman (2178) - North Wales, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 26, 2003
Cherry-color and thin, off-white head. Aroma of caramel, citrus, and spice. Malty and tangy fruit flavor with hints of chocolate and cinnamon. Reminds me of a spiced English Pale Ale. The spices are quite well-integrated. Not a bad offering from Samuel Adams. dwyerpg (6187) - Las Vegas, Nevada, USA - NOV 26, 2003
Smells like cinnamon maybe? beautiful red color. this beer has a very distinct taste - i guess that the malts. can taste the chocolate but its not overpowering at all. apoptosis (1317) - Denver, Colorado, USA - NOV 24, 2003
Looks like a medium-quality herb beer. Dark amber color, with a fairly quickly diminishing head. Smells mildly like caramel, but it very malty. MAYBE a hint of chocolate, but it's very faint.
