Our interpretation of a fall seasonal beer. This beer will curl your toes and put goosebumps on your arms. A fine collection of traditional fall spices make this a great addition to the holiday season...it will make all humbugs cheery. The beer is dark in color...a bit darker than brown ale. There is a combination of Perle and Willamette hops to provide a contrasting intensity with the fall spices.

- kastanienbraune Farbe mit guter, schnell zerfallender Schaumbildung - herrliche Aromen nach Trockenfrüchten, Bitterschokolade, Rostmalzen, eine Spur Zimt, etwas Muskatnuss, verbunden mit einer leicht rauchigen Note - passende Carbonisierung - der Antrunk zeigt die beschriebenen Aromen in perfekter Ausgewogenheit auf - der erhöhte Alkoholgehalt kommt geschmacklich nie unangenehm zum Vorschein - die süßlichen Noten und der Rauchtouch ergänzen sich - der Abgang wird dann noch durch eine gewisse Holzigkeit – erinnert etwas an Lakritz – verfeinert Fazit: Ausgewogenes Geschmacksfeuerwerk

Poured from a 12 OZ can into a pint glass. The appearance is a clear reddish-brown with a small tan head. The aroma is smoky malt. The taste is the smoky malt with spices.

This brew brings a lot of different flavors, it has malty raisin flavor, and it has this unique hop/spice flavor very addictive.

The winter warmer has a nice smoky flavor I love. It is not too sweet, which I also appreciate.

22oz bottle from The Beer Store in Wilson, NC. Rudy amber hue with mostly lasting frothy caramel head. Zero visibility with excellent lacing. Light spice, malt and some chocolate aroma. Light bitter chocolate on the initial taste with a medium malt finish. Light and refreshing on the palate. I really enjoyed this one.

22oz bottle from JCB, thanks Jason! Pours a deep brown colored body with a slight ruby hue. Finger-width, creamy, light brown head that dissipates slowly and leaves a nice lacing. Aroma has lots of smoke with a light sweetness. Not very meaty, but somewhat peaty with a touch of spice. A light caramel aiding the slight sweetness. Flavor is pretty solid. This still has lots of smoke up front, but there’s a nice, light earthy hopping throughout and a solid caramel malt to balance. There is a touch of fruity esters and a light spicing that picks up a tad towards the end with some chocolate notes. Finishes dry, smoky, peaty, earthy, and spiced with a balanced, light malt sweetness before leaving a light bitterness and a lengthy aftertaste. Medium-light body and a soft, moderate carbonation. Overall, I was a pretty big fan of this one. Pretty smoky, but well balanced with a nice spicing, earthy hopping, and light malt sweetness. Dry, but balanced and easy drinking throughout. Good beer.

Bomber from the brewery. Pours a clear reddish brown color with a medium sized creamy tan head. Decent head retention. Aroma of caramel malts, smoke, bubblegum and spice. The taste is toasted malts, nuts, a smoky almost woody note, spruce, spices. Medium bodied. Didn’t expect this much smokiness, but its still a pretty nice beer.

Interesting brew. Definitely something you’d want on a cold night, but a tad too strong for a real session. Would pair amazingly with some chili or a strong beef stew.
