Our winter ale has a gorgeous mahogany hue, a hint of hazelnuts, and a finish reminiscent of mocha and toffee. No spices, just a perfect blend of five specialty malts. Cellarable for 3+ years.

Hmmm, have not rated this one yet! Poured a mahogany color with an off white head. Dark fruits, caramel, some nutiness, and some spices.

Bottle. Pours as describes- rich dark red. Aroma is hard to pick up- getting some yeast spiciness and dried cherry, but nothing too pronounced. The mouthfeel is creamy, with quad-like spice and ginger notes. Finish is a touch metallic. I didn’t wait to cellar this, but maybe that would add some additional depth. Finishes surprisingly thin, with a little bit of sticky pine needles lingering.

Bottle to pint. Deep red pour with a touch of off white head. Big nose of roasted nuts and dark fruit. Taste is similar with some nice body. Alcohol is well-hidden. Captures the idea of a winter seasonal perfectly.

First Avery offering that I tasted this past spring..found 6 pk at small bottle shop in queens..poured into pint glass..nice chestnut color..2 finger head with a little lace..clears quickly..great fruity, nutty aroma..and hits the tongue really well..stays in the palate but not in an overbearing way..an excellent winter ale that made me go and try a number of other Avery quaffs..highly recommended.

Draft to taster. Looks good; a transparent copperish brown with light beige head. Smells malty with otes of sweetness and winter spices. Tastes like it smells with a solid mouthfeel. Enjoyable.

This is a great tasting Christmas ale. Bottle days can cellar for three years, I would for at least one maybe two years.

Pours a deep cola colored brown with a slight head. Aroma is sweet maltiness, healthy mouthfeel, and a taste of sweet black coffee, slight chocolate.....spiced and bittered notes in the back end. A well built winter warmer.

This is a great example if a winter ale. The hazelnut in it is spot on. Very complex beer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
