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.

Stellaaaa (256) - Tennessee, USA - MAR 30, 2013
Pours a clear ruby red with a thick, white head. It has an aroma of pine and dry-roasted, browned malt (although not too roasted/caramelised, just lightly). It tastes like alcohol and pine. I get a little bit of the dry malt taste at the end followed by bitterness, but the alcohol and pine at the beginning predominate. Not a horrible beer, and one I might drink again, but I can’t say I’d go out of my way to get it either.

Dfonorow (1512) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - MAR 25, 2013
Pour is brown/red with a thin white head, nice lacing. Aroma of light fruits, english yeast, cloves, Earth. Flavor is fairly mild with the English yeast shining through the most - cloves, barnyard, sweet caramel. Mild hop finish, a bit watery.

dlbeer (809) - Wisconsin, USA - MAR 18, 2013
Bottle. Brown/red pour with creamy off white head. Smells of toffee, caramel and spices. Tastes of the same with nutty notes. Good beer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

demmbonz (542) - Erin, Wisconsin, USA - FEB 9, 2013
12oz bottle to pint. Smells malty and bitter. Nice creamy persistent head. Taste follows aroma. Nice brew.

Lemke10 (806) - Waukesha, Wisconsin, USA - JAN 24, 2013
Expect the unexpected with this ale. It pours a dark brown color with a long lasting head. There is a slight scent to it, but nothing that stands out. It was quite heavy for an ale while there was a slight nutty taste, very slightly bitter but finished quite smooth. A very nice find and something I would suggest to others.

Amber brown color, mildly sweet, balanced malts. Not as dark or complex as the bottle description seems to indicate.

kwoeltje (2232) - Manchester, Missouri, USA - JAN 13, 2013
(bottle) murky brown with tan head. Malt aroma. Flavor is caramel malt and some earthy hops.

Loktera (3) - - JAN 4, 2013 does not count
light smell, almost yeasty. flavor isn’t overwhelming, nor is it special. Slightly hoppy aftertaste that doesn’t linger too long afterward. Unimpressive and average

cbfobes (2324) - Quad Cities, Iowa, USA - JAN 1, 2013
On tap at O’Riley & Conway, pours a clear dark amber with pretty much no head, the aroma is sweet with a little bit of malt and just a hint of dark fruit, the flavor is pretty much like the aroma, sweet with not a lot going on, a little bit of malt in the finish, boring.

Fatehunter (1274) - Corbett, Oregon, USA - JAN 1, 2013
It has a thin head with no lacing and a hazy, copper colored body. The aroma is only the faint smell of hay. A bit of a disappointment. It tastes like yeast, a barnyard, grain and with a mild bitterness. Low carbonation and medium body. A fair enough beer but lacking in the appearance and smell areas.
