Clear deep copper body with creamy beige head. Aroma is malty, moderately sweet and fruity. Taste is malty, caramel, moderately sweet and a bit of berry. Not cloying. As it warms up, good earthy hoppiness enters in the back half of the taste. Lubiere (13915) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 29, 2007

SIgnificant slow dissipitating head, which distributes alcohol and malt. Cocoa colour, with chocolate malt, some decent tastiness and medium mouthfeel. Appropriate carbonation. Carmel, a tad smokiness. hopscotch (11104) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - NOV 19, 2005
Bottle... Clear, deep copper ale with a small, creamy, off-white head. Excellent retention. The malty nose is full of caramel and gingerbread. Malty, rich flavor. Unbalanced. Sweet, but not cloyingly so. Full-bodied and velvety with medium carbonation. Finishes fairly thin and bland. Thanks go out to growler for the bottle!

Lovely hazy ruby color, with aroma and flavors of caramel malt, berries, cabernet, cinnamon, nutmeg, and some hops. Complex flavor profile that gets spicier and creamier as it warms. This one was a great surprise. KyotoLefty (10264) - Kyoto, JAPAN - SEP 14, 2009
Bottle. Medium amber-brown with a good, fine head. Amber malt and yeast aroma, slightly earthy, a bit of caramel and raisins. Very well roasted amber malt. A touch sweet, but primarily dry. A touch of chocolate, with grass and earth, dried fruit. Dry, roasted finish with some hops. Very nice and well-balanced. Not really special, though, and not especially winter-ish.

(1-year-old bottle) : Fondly nourishing tart apple syrup fondling maple syrup and earthy roastiness...This decadently euphoriant perfume harbors definite barley wine qualities but disappoints once tasted in that it doesn’t render the heavy mellowness and serene dessert tones it had promised...Fruitiness within is tired and complexity almost vanishes...I have to return to this in a fresh format just in case the aroma actually carries through...That would be a stunning beer...
