look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

22 oz bottle from Roth’s Sunnyslope Market, in S.Salem. $3.99. Alc. is 7.0% Pours a dark slightly murky ruby/amber, lovely thick,bubbly tan head ( about half an inch). Aroma is very malty..dark chocolate,figs,slightly smokey with some resinous hop. The taste is similar to the aroma,with the hops leaving a nice after taste. Nice smooth mouthfeel makes this a quite drinkable strong ale.

22 picked up at the COOP I believe on Friday night... Paid I think $8ish... Poured into my slim tulip... tannish head sticks around for not too long.. the brew is a pretty standard deep amber.

Nose shows sorta expected PNW Winter Ale notes... but done pretty well. Toasty nose and some caramel... piney and citrus hoppiness battle with the medium malt profile.

Interesting piney hoppiness comes out front and quickly melts into the malts... caramel and light toffee... citrus zest hoppiness comes in on the finish.. lingers and melts with the malts... everything is surprisingly balanced.. nothing outweighs anything else...

Medium boned, but seemingly high ABV for a winter warmer... A nice sipper, but the hops make me want another sip... and another. Well done across the board.

First had: on tap at Beermongers, Portland, OR

Poured a darker bronze/copper color with a small white head that left some nice lacing on the glass. Subdued aroma, toasted malts and a hint of hops. Taste of caramel, toffee, German malts, notes of brown sugar, tobacco, and mild hops. Medium body, and pretty drinkable. Nothing extraordinary going on.

look: 3 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3

On tap at Beer Mongers.

A finger of offwhite head, full, fine lace.

Not much nose here, some faintly sour malt.

Initial tang of faint citrus and tempered hops, barrel aging is otherwise subtle, but there's a faint brandy tang, I guess... I don't think it works that well.

Smooth, average texture.

I guess I was praying for snow and got freezing rain.

look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Poured from tap at Portland Winter Ale Festival:

Good appearance: dark copper with decent head.

Aromas center on toffee, hops, and subtle spice.

Nice though light flavor profile in a German Dunkel vein.

Great texture and lots of roasted nuances on the finish. Nicely balanced and goes down nicely.

Not too light, not too heavy, but nothing really stands out all that much about this beer. Good but not great.
