Winter warmer. Hop forward - not a ton of sweetness but malty, toasty and nice alcohol warmth ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Great beer. Has a slightly fruity flavor but not overwhelming. Smooth and a little heavy but not to much. A great combo for a seasonal beer.

jmohno (1059) - Iowa, USA - DEC 15, 2012
Cloudy amber,nice head,very thick lacing.Lasting creamy head. Pretty carbed. Aroma of mild chocolate-caramel-mineral.Just mildly of an amber or brown. Taste is about the same,kind of light-medium body But fullish and creamy at first- just finishes up more light bodied..Mild malt,mild carmel malts,mild hop,somewhat pleasant finish pretty mild but with carmalized tones. Not bad.

From 12 ounce bottle. Much tastier than I remembered. Balanced hoppiness paired with caramel and toffee notes.

Not a bad winter beer. Deep amber with a nice thick head. Rich and malty with a good grassy hop balance. Has a nice spicy body.

alcaponejunior (438) - Texas, USA - DEC 4, 2012
Brownish-red and hazy, good one finger head and fairly good lacing. Spicy and hoppier than Iíd expect from a winter warmer, a bit earthy with a touch of solvent like notes. Spicy again on the taste, caramel malts, floral and earthy hops, a tinge of alcohol. Body is pretty full and mildly bitter on the finish, with some residual caramel malt flavor. Overall itís a decent winter warmer. Not my favorite, but good enough for inclusion in a mixed twelvesky.

Humbug! Actually pretty good, though given the name I expected something bolder. Or at least involving some Christmas ghosts. Warm malts with some underlying hoppy bitterness. Some spice on the finish.

Bottle offering. Deep auburn coloured. Aromas of cinnamon, nutmeg, cloves and cooked fruits. Flavorful and tasty with notes of spice and molasses. A very tasty winter brew.
