I really enjoyed this. Dark, rich, malty, and altogether tasty. I wouldn’t mind a little less carbonation, but the beer overall was quite good. The ever-present ship on the label is covered in snow. How crafty!

I had one 22oz. of this guy and I was feeling pretty good. The taste of this beer has a little bit of a kick to it due to the high alcohol content. It's a decent beer if your into getting a buzz and tasting the alcohol more so than other beers.

Nice holiday ale. Typical winter spices with a bit more hoppy punch. Pretty good. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

A hazy red beer with a small off-white head. The aroma is nutty, alcohol, and wood. The flavor is vanilla, wood, and sweet malt.

Bottle: mixed flavors in the aroma. Color was good but i was surprised at the dry finish.

Bottle. Pours a deep amber with almost no head. Nose is malt laden. Flavor is malt dominated with almost no hops. Sweet, but still the malts make you take notice. Very lightly carbonated. A bitter finish completes the taste. A bomber with the leftover brew still in the refrigerator. I’m not sure if I really want to revisit this one

aroma is a bit odd, strong sweet somewhat artificial raisin syrup with banana, biscuits, and burnt sugar. flavor is sweet but dry. there’s a lot in here but it just seems a bit off. it’s really very dry and slightly astringent with a long burnt sugar finish and bitter hops.

PGHbeer77 (571) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 1, 2013
12 oz. Caramel, molasses and oat scent. Deep mahogany brown pour with a foamy thick head. Medium, silky feel. Toffee/caramel flavor to buttery toast with a touch of dark chocolate. Not bad at all.

Pershing (562) - Garland, Texas, USA - FEB 8, 2014
Pours dark amber into a nonic pint glass with a thin tan head dissolves slowly. Aroma of sweet malt and some yeast. The initial drink is a bit sweet from the malt but towards the middle it starts to taste a little dry. Spicy taste with a little hop bitterness on the edges. Lingering finish. Not bad for a buck 50.

Shadallion (534) - Sacramento, California, USA - APR 22, 2001
Very cool ringwood-made beer, featuring that ’mushroomy’ taste that yeast-strain produces. It won’t make you wet your pants with glee, but this just a nifty craft brew.
