Look: Slightly opaque dark amber red with a nice beige head that billows and slowly settles, leaving great lacing behind
Aroma: Freshly baked brown bread, toffee, earthy hop notes, and sweet dried dark fruit
Taste: Brown bread and toffee hit first, soon joined by rich dark fruit and earthiness. As the malty notes fade away, earthy hops take center stage before bready malt comes back into the forefront and closes things out
Mouthfeel: Full bodied, soft throughout, medium-high carbonation, and some hop sharpness and slight dryness on the finish
Overall: I dig it. A tasty and well-made malty winter beer but with enough earthy hop notes to keep it balanced and from being too sweet. After not trying this last year, I’m glad to get the chance to revisit it as it’s good and a welcome addition to the beer fridge in these colder months

On draught at Old Chicago.

Pours a clear reddish brown, fluffy off white head of foam.

Smells hoppy, roasty, some sweet notes. Little bit of nuttiness.

Taste is pretty bitter. Aspirin like. Roasted malt, very little sweetness. Hint of nuttiness.

Good mouthfeel but to me, not a tasty brew.

12oz single purchased at Total Wine in Lynnwood, Washington.
Best by 15 JAN20. Poured in to a pint glass.

Look- Slightly hazy cherry cola color, modest little light khaki head with good retention, decent lacing. Light carbonation streaming as it sits.

Smell- Caramel and toffee, roasted nuts and toasted dark bread, light dark fruits and citrus, a bit of cocoa and herbal/mulling spice type notes.

Taste- Follows the nose for the most part, the citrus is more pronounced than in the aroma. Starts out malty sweet, slight hints of vanilla in there too with a fairly bitter/astringent spicy hop finish. Pretty well balanced.

Feel- Medium bodied, warming alcohol is evident. Semi-dry with moderate carbonation.

O- A solid offering from 10 Barrel, reasonably priced too. Drinks kind of like a dopplebock. Worth trying if you find it.

The pour is dark brown. The aroma is of nuts & dark fruits & the taste is the same. I agree that this beer could have delivered some more too for labeling itself a winter beer. It can pass off for an early autumn brown ale. Cheers! B-

Pours a nice, dark red / amber with a tight fomy head. Light 'beer-y' nose, not much else. Very malt-forward which is expected. Pleasing bittness keeps things interesting. We pick up notes of figs, molasses and a touch of licorice. We'd class this with the winter warmers. Nothing spectacular, but it's well-crafted and a solid choice.

I did a swiperoo at my local Meijer....took 3 of these and 3 of 10Bs ipa.....made my own mixed six. It a clear deep rich mahogany with khaki head that is not leaving any lace. The scent had rich malt presence. The taste was malt forward with caramel and roast accents that eventually finished bitter. The mouthfeel is fuller in body with good carbonation. Overall its a decent beer.

Beautiful dark molasses-colored body (although it's a bit light-bodied-looking), light tan head that lasts and lasts. The nose smells... dusty. Old. There's a bit of toasted grain, but the dominant aroma. The flavor is only marginally improved, offering a small amount of caramel and plum to the sawdust base. Not much in the way of malt, hop, spice, nor sweetness. The feel is also a disappointment, being pretty light and having too much zippy carbonation for what should be a heavy, rich style.
This beer didn't offer much. Dusty old flavor, light body, good ABV but not really for the style. For labeling itself a winter beer, I thought this could have delivered a lot more.

Poured into a pint glass. A very dark brown with a thin head. Looks beautiful. Smell is nutty with hints of malt. Taste is same but I feel the alcohol burn. Not easy to drink. A sipping beer that improves as it warms.
