Far too bitter for my liking. Much better winter ales out there.

This just hit me as really damn good. Nice deep amber in the glass, and nice hints of pine on the nose. Many of the same notes (IMHO) as Brown Shugga, just not as sweet or strong. Really set off a nice winter evening with the wife. I am really glad I tried this one!

Nice beer to start out but has a bitter ending to it that I am not sure can be equated to the hops.

Had better winter warmers from local breweries, no need to keep this middle of the road example from across the country.
