12 oz bottle thanks to 17thfloor! Pours a deep amber with a small off white froth. Aroma of sweet caramel and a bit of a dark fruity note, a bit of a candied fruit character and some light piney and citric hops. Flavor is nice, the hops are more forward than expected, nicely balanced with the biscuity malts and sweet caramel note. Finishes lightly bitter and crisp. Medium body and a soft carbonation. nice beer 17thfloor (2443) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - OCT 31, 2011
Wow, this amber kicks ass. So pleasantly surprised here! A nice alternative to Celebration, bit maltier sweeter, more robust. Very nice. Will finish rating in a few minutes.... CampesinoTino (800) - Seattle, Washington, USA - OCT 30, 2011
Bottle. Appearance is a coppery amber color with a solid inch of foamy beige head. The aroma is a blend of grapefruit, floral hops, brown sugar and toffee. The flavor matches the aroma with strong ruby red grapefruit, orange and herbal hops notes followed by some pine, caramel and toasted malt. The mouthfeel is mildly creamy and well carbonated with a dry, bitter finish and slight citrus aftertaste. Overall, a tasty brew on the hoppier end of the spectrum for a winter seasonal. johnnyoski (445) - Macomb, Michigan, USA - OCT 28, 2011
Bottle. Dark copper pour with a foamy and medium sized off-white head. Light citrus aroma with toffee, pine and toasted malt also present. Soft, bitter initial flavor is balanced with a semi-sweet, malty finish. Syrupy texture and well carbonated. No alcohol burn despite the higher ABV. A heavier beer that reminds me of a Winter warmer. rocbyter (2131) - Waterbury, Connecticut, USA - OCT 27, 2011
Strong hop and light malt aroma. Clear amber color with a small white head. Light bitter beginning that quickly fades to a slight sweet malt finish with a mildly creamy palate.

A nice, heavy, seasonal, Amber. This Ale is probably something of a vagrants holiday dream here in the North-West. High alcohol content, and a decent price. nearbeer (5456) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - SEP 25, 2011
Draft at MarCellars. This one is from last winter and aged pretty well in the keg. Aromas of caramel, dusty grain, spicy floral and citrus hops. Taste is a nice blend of the same flavors, with some toasted nut as well. Still pretty hoppy even with the age. Medium body is well-balanced. sticky but smooth and drinikable, and has medium carbonation. Snegurochka (395) - Tromsø, NORWAY - JUL 3, 2011
354ml/12oz bottle with dinner at Mor mor bistro and bar; Paulsbo. Being Norwegian, visiting a place called mor mor (grandmother) in a place called Paulsbo, which is like cut out from a Norwegian Fairytale, a cold December day you are destined to choose the beer called Brrr. Amber coloured body, with a white head- like snow. The aroma was like Christmas cakes: caramel, pine and some citrus. I thought I smelled cinnamon to, but maybe it was me being influenced by the mood and the atmosphere? Hoppy, with hints of tangerine and caramel. I want to go home for Christmas- SKÅL!

The beer pours a reddish-amber color with a white head. The aroma is caramel and biscuit malt with a little bit of piney hops mixed in. A very nice aroma overall. The flavor is heavier on the hops than I expected. I get a lot of pine as well as some caramel malt. Low bitterness and very drinkable. Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation. A nice take on a winter warmer. kev1001 (67) - Montana, USA - MAR 4, 2011
Bottle. Pours golden/amber. Medium head. Flavor is bitter, with pine coming through and a bit of floral notes. Caramel and malts are also present. A lot like an IPA but a little maltier as expected with a winter beer.
