Gethinbeer (2452) - Nova Scotia, CANADA - DEC 4, 2006
UPDATED: NOV 15, 2014 Strong aroma of oak and hops, followed by metallic notes. Great deep amber colour with a nice frothy head. Strong flavour of hops, smooth with a fruity slick edge. Metallic aftertaste. Leaves a final taste of toffee long after sip.

Attractive color. Pours a rich amber color with brown highlights. Head is white and thin. Sweet aroma of caramel. Flavor is lightly sweet. Finishes with lots of lingering alcohol. Was better when it was colder, as it warmed up it showed some faults. I had the bomber, would like to try this on tap.

Ugh. Another British "tea" beer. Sweet, brown - not much head and it comes in a clear bottle. I usually try and stay away from these beers...

SynergyXJ (510) - Blacksburg, Virginia, USA - NOV 29, 2006
Bottle Dark brown pour with nice head and little retention. Sweet malt aroma with some earthy smells, little chocolate, nutty. Earthy flavor, some more chocolate, caramel and nuts. Slight hops in the aftertaste. Overall, thin and smooth. Very drinkable.

jpm30 (1587) - East Central, Georgia, USA - NOV 29, 2006
From a 500 ml. shaped, embossed, narrow neck bottle with a freshness date on the neck of bottle, served in the Hobgoblin pint glass that came with the holiday gift pack. Poured a deep, rich looking reddish amber with a foamy, creamy off-white head that settled into a thin sudsy lacing, minimal amount of laced sticking. Aromas of earthy tobacco, light coffee and chocolate, buttery and a soft citrus. Good moderate carbonation and a crisp, velvety smooth medium-full bodied mouthfeel. Nice winter taste, nutty chocolate malts with a touch of sweetness, buttery, citrus hops with hints of earth, a good, soft bitterness that complements the malts, a subtle flash of alcohol towards the end, and a dryish buttery, nutty finish with a soft hop bitterness lingering in the palate. Very enjoyable, easy drinkability, another reason why I look forward to Christmas.

chimpscampee (566) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - NOV 28, 2006
Nice look and fragrance, the bottle amuses. Classic understated taste I associate with english ales but better than most I’ve tried. Well balanced with very subtle sidenotes that harmonize. Dark but a medium body. A session brew that goes down easy with enjoyable but not overwhelming aftertaste.

3.3
goldtwins (4320) - Nesconset, New York, USA - NOV 27, 2006
Poured a clear golden brown color with a small beige head. Sweet thick caramel malt aroma. Some nutty notes with light hops, chocolate and golden raisins. Caramel malty flavor with a moderately dry finish and hop bitterness.

3.3
schuimkroaat (427) - Leuven, BELGIUM - NOV 26, 2006
0.5 L bottle, ’bbe’ Aug 07. Clear dark red with a coppery hue, abundant froth lacing moderately. Nose of sweet, sticky malts, aromatic hops and a hint of cinnamon. A lot of malt sweetness and some (lasting) spiciness in the taste; with a thick, smooth, almost syrupy palate.
