Amber ale? Hah. Murky dark orangish amber, moderate to small head, some lacing and retention. Aroma is caramel, light hops, some darker fruit, light spicing. Medium bodied, somewhat sweet, mostly not enjoyable. beerinmarch (2830) - Washington, USA - JUL 18, 2005
From the bottle this pours a dark, lightly cloudy mahogany with a smooth off-white head. Tons of spice overtake the aroma with some crisp spicy hops. Taste kinda brings you through a assortment of flavors finishing with a very dry spicy finish. Nice fruitiness compliments the spice in the finish. harlequinn (2744) - Tacoma, Washington, USA - MAR 21, 2006
This is one of the most bizarre beers I have ever tried. What a trainwreck of flavor this one is. Sheet candied fruitcake flavors, a bit waxy, biscuity maltiness, nicely hoppy, sprucey and piney. jazz88 (2699) - San Francisco, California, USA - OCT 31, 2002
Tap @ brewpub. A dark red tinted brown. A warm malty beer that cloys with dark cherry. Reid (2626) - Salem, Oregon, USA - MAR 13, 2005
sampled in the 22 oz bottle ,bought today in Newport ,Oregon.
Quite attractive brown with ruby accents in colour,slightly hazy. Good sized bubbly frothy white head. That dissapears fast but leaves nice lace.
Spicy hop,and chocolaty malt hop aroma mostly
Very spicy taste to this,and with a great malt backbone, some bitterness near the end, but it ends with a long drawn out ripe fruitiness.For some reason figs and raisins come to mind.
Very smooth on the palate ,almost like a bottle conditioned beer.
Very easy to drink. Nice winter offering from this great little brewery!

Another taster courtesy of Skyview. Cloying hop nose with citrus hints. Some funk that shouldn’t be there as well. Brown color with a sour body. OhioDad (2492) - Hilliard, Ohio, USA - MAY 10, 2007
22oz bottle - Well let me start this one off by saying it was around 85 degrees here in Ohio today and I sent my kid to the basement for a beer. What does she come up with a winter warmer.. LOL.. Good thing this really wasn’t all that warm. Pours murky amber with a short offwhite head and a little lace. Aroma is mostly caramel, some slight earthy notes and maybe a touch of pine. Flavor is raisin, spice, caramel, and lots of earth.. and by earth I mean like dirt.. Palate is fizzy upfront but really there isn’t much carbonation at all. Almost flat.. This one is really bad honestly I’ve tried all of Siletz’s beers now and haven’t found one really worth buying.. Schroppfy (2362) - Łódż, Warsaw, Poland; Michigan, Ohio, USA - NOV 27, 2002
Has Dry Stout-like characteristics, but far far more rich and slightly sweet and hearty than other examples of that style I have had (I should mention I'm not a big Dry Stout fan). A deliciously oaky, malty, slightly sweet...ummm...stout. Interacts strangely with various foods. I made the mistake of having my second sample after some Swiss cheese, and I got the funkiest chemical interactions on my tongue I've had in a really long time. Bizarre. But my second favorite beer from a great small brewery. ANd I liked calling them on the phone and getting the home number of the brewers. That was cool, and I was nervous!

From a 22-oz. bottle--Poured a hazy mahogany/chestnut hue with a nose of fruity malts and mildly piny hops. Creamy mouth feel with a citrusy mild chewy finish. Dry and crisp finish. Slick (1969) - Thief River Falls, Minnesota, USA - DEC 3, 2003
Much better then the Mojo,dark amber color,small tan head that was short lived.The aroma was malty,and caramel with a light fruit side and mild hops.The flavor came off much the same as the aroma with a bigger caramel and malt and was sweeter then it let on,and a slight fruit side again.The after taste was malty and semi-sweet with a nice hop presence.Not a bad brew at all,and fairly worth getting it here from L.S. easy drinking and flavorful.
