COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A true Winter Warmer made in homage of the season: Full-bodied and rich, deep amber in color, crowned with a creamy head, and finished with a mild bitter flush.

A nice attempt at a winter ale, but had a poor musky aftertaste that was unsettling for me.

rodolito (163) - San Diego, California, USA - JAN 16, 2003
2002 bottling. Healthy head of tannish white sea foam. Clear, dark amber with a hint of red. Light vanilla aroma sneaking through the malts. Not as much malt flavor as I remember it having last year. A bit acidic and light mouthfeel. Some hoppiness. Oh hell, where are the malts?

Clear mahogany with light tan head. Moderately sweet, caramel, slightly earthy hoppy. Flavor is pleasant, berry sweetness, good maltiness, finishes earthy hoppy.

3fourths (7885) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - JAN 10, 2003
UPDATED: DEC 23, 2003 Cask at the brewery. Dark glowing red with a frothy off-white head. Sweet cherries, nuts, nutmeg and allspice aroma, very sweet. Flavor is a sweet woody cherry. Not very spicey or hoppy in the flavor, just a mellow fruity winter ale. Nice.

aracauna (3050) - Georgia, USA - JAN 9, 2003
Medium-dark brown body, small cream head. Aroma is lemon and the smell of tomato plants during picking or tobacco. As for taste, there isn’t much. A hint of sweet malt and maybe a little bit of spice, slightly sour at the end.

Nothing earth shattering here. Seems rather plain in the bottle, but can be very good on tap at the brewery.

Another excellent addition to the Bridgeport lineup of distinct and very enjoyable ales. Recently snatched a sixer of these and numerous other goodies out for friends and familar during New Year’s last night and everyone commented highly on Ebenezer, even those who generally don’t drink craft styled brews. This rich and extremely full bodied ale pours very well and delivers a very nice woft of sweet malty aroma. Gives off a decent sized, long lasting head with good lacing. A rich and sweet tasting ale that delivers hints of toffee, caramel, and a hint of spiciness. I enjoyed this both as an afternoon warming drink as well as an after dinner teaser to go along with some left over Xmas cake. A double duty brew that’s worth taking a closer look at when the opportunity arises.

BeerLimey (2154) - California, USA - DEC 26, 2002
Pretty distinctive aroma, malty, spicy but with a herbal shampoo sweetness. Nice rich fruity malts up front, dries out well with some spice and roastiness. Pretty impressive drinking. Good hoppiness in the finish.

Tom Servo (424) - Arlington, Virginia, USA - DEC 20, 2002
This is a great beer. Has a nice full flavor to it, with a bit of smoke in the finish. Medium head, and a bit of the bitter in it.

Kind of fruity, banana like esters, strong body and good aftertaste. The flavor hangs around mid-tongue as the carbonation rolls off the tongue. Slightly dry but well built. It is also a beautiful shade of red with a mild carbonation and minimal yet lasting head. Indeed it does warm those winter nights. Or maybe it is just the woodstove I am leaning on. This makes any Ebeneezer smile.
