brokensail (11599) - Orange County, California, USA - DEC 30, 2013
On tap @ City Beer. Mahogany pour with an off-white head. Nose is sweet toffee and dark fruits such as raisin and plum. A decent caramel note, some light spice, and plenty of toast. Flavor is dominated by the sweet malt base. Lots of toffee and caramel. Heavy dark fruit character and a bit of syrup. A touch of spice and roast.

Dark tan pour with minimal head and an aroma of malt and slight sweet caramel. A sweet strong malt backbone with a full body. A great winter warmer for a cold football Sunday

Carmel Medium bodied medium co2, sweet bready finish Pretty simple brew but I really like the way everything blends together.

Davhgbrew (945) - Seattle, Washington, USA - DEC 22, 2013
Dark copper color. Malt up front. Spices in the flavor. Nicely carbonated. Middle is slight bitter. Clove and nutmeg. More crisp and dry of a winter warmer with lower abv which is not apparent.

luttonm (2431) - Seattle, Washington, USA - DEC 20, 2013
12oz bottle in Seattle. Hazed amber red pour with foamy head. Somewhat spiced malt aroma with grain and spice body. Banana bread. Middle range ’winter’ ale, on the lighter side with some soapy hops and alc. Not great but perfectly drinkable.

Bulk_Carrier (2269) - Juneau, Alaska, USA - DEC 16, 2013
Pours dark red/brown and leaves the same colored body with a two finger foamy white head that rises a bit and falls at a nice pace but ends up creating a nice soapy looking valley with a ton of speckled foamy lacing all over the place (nice show); the smell is full of malty breadiness up front, light raisin and molasses enter in the background with some extra dark fruitiness entering in the aroma; the taste has caramel and sweet breadyiness with some added earthy orange and nutmeg; sweet sticky caramel aftertaste; sweet dry finish; its pretty easy on the palate for being a darker Winter Warmer, carbonation is pretty smooth and good for the style and for me; overall not bad for a darker Winter Warmer as I’m usually not that into the darker ones of this style, however I would definitely take this one over most of the darker winter warmers

pushkinwow (2100) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 15, 2013
On tap at brewpub. Dirty dark amber with a beige head. Up front maltiness and then sorta becomes plain and grainy. Easy to drink, mild carbonation, moderate body, caramel, little sweet at first and finishes with a bittersweet note.

ajnepple (2551) - Conifer, Colorado, USA - DEC 15, 2013
12 oz bottle from Evergreen Discount into my NBB globe glass. Deep amber and slightly hazy with a nice off-white head. The nose is toasted malts, nutty, caramel, light roast, bitter hops and a touch of spice. Similar flavor, pretty mild and easy to drink, not a ton going on. Average body with a creamy feel, soft carbonation and crisp, clean, light bitter finish.
