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.

12oz bottle. Murky amber-brown body. Foamy off-white head. Toffee, amber malt tones, some Christmas fruitcake/wassail action. It’s not really a great beer by any mean, but it manages to approximate the style well enough. Rich and malty, a spiced ESB.

Sweet, slight metal, bready malt, caramel, light spice. It is a decent brew but very metallic to me.

Murky Brown, Huge Head, Lots of Lacing. Moderately Sweet Malt, Light Pine aftertaste that does not last long. When you think of a winter brew, this one is too thin and not sweet enough to be one. Nevertheless a decent brew that I’ve enjoyed it this cold spring evening.

OKplus (787) - Oklahoma, USA - APR 29, 2013
A - Pours a hazy dark orange brown. 1 finger of tan head. S - Dark malts, candied oranges, faint cinnamon apple. Unkown fruits. I had to really try and find anything in the nose. Overall the aroma was pretty subdued. T - Spicy wheat breadiness, a good amount of toasted toffee malt, spiced oranges, over-ripened red grapes. Good hop presence. Has a soft spice blend that I couldn’t quite pick out. M - Moderate carbonation, light to medium body. Nice malt flavors but a very faint nose on this one. Drinks very easy and finishes dry. Seems a bit thin for a Winter Warmer but a tasty beer nonetheless. I would get this again. Serving type: on-tap 12-08-2010

Ibrew2or3 (7344) - Tempe, Arizona, USA - APR 24, 2013
12oz bottle pours clear amber with copper hues and supporting a weak tan head. The aroma offers up lots of prunes and raisins and then a bit of fig like sweetness. The taste is similar as I get a raisin note that borders on peppery along with some softer prune notes in the background. To midway it picks up some candi sugar and a faint beat quality.

Stellaaaa (258) - 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 (1707) - 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.

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

12oz bottle to pint. Smells malty and bitter. Nice creamy persistent head. Taste follows aroma. Nice brew.

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.
