Beerenberger (1380) - Fischer, Texas, USA - MAR 2, 2012
This seasonal brew is somewhat fruity up front followed quickly by strong effervescence and the a long crisp after taste. I liked it. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Smurf2055 (1399) - Seattle, Washington, USA - FEB 26, 2012
Pours copper with about two fingers white head. Smell is light, cinnamon and a bit of cloves. Taste is winter spices, mint, earthy. Very watery palate. Not the best winter ale, not a fan.

deekyn (1142) - San Francisco, California, USA - JAN 30, 2012
A - pours hazy reddish brown with two fingers off white head that laces well. S - Aromas of black tea leaves, woodiness, and coffee up front. Hints of cinnamon and spruce as well. M - creamy mouth feel from medium bodied brew. average carbonation. T - subtle tastes. Black tea (unsweetened sun tea) comes on first. Hints of wood, coffee, and spruce as well. O - average winter ale. drinklable, but feels more like tea than a winter ale. 5+ brownish red with two fingers of light tan almost off white head, pretty decent lacing. The nose is pretty mild, a little fruit and some spice. The taste is more spice forward, Im having a hard time putting my finger on it but I do get a little cinnamon, there are also some medicinal flavors in there. Medium carbonation medium body. Overall not that bad but nothing Id go looking for. I do suppose this is a very aproachable winter warmer.

theOptimator (283) - Sacramento, California, USA - JAN 22, 2012
Aroma is caramel malt, mineraly. Appearance is dull brown with hint of red, a bit hazy. Small tan head. Taste is caramel biscuit forward with a hint of roast. Some cinnamon. Bit of herbal. Palate is medium, a herbal bitterness lingers. Kinda heavy, lays flat. Overall drinkable. Not my favorite.

DuffMan (6554) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - JAN 4, 2012
Bottle. Handsome rust amber colour with a finger-thick golden crown that leaves a little lace. Nose is surprisingly muted, with caramel notes struggling to rise out of the glass. I poured four of these and they were all alike. Flavor is tea and toffee, with astringent herbal rooty bitterness in the finish. After having recently had Old Fezziwig and Jubelale (on draught, no less), this cannot compare.

Pours a murky brownish red with two fingers of light tan almost off white head, pretty decent lacing. The nose is pretty mild, a little fruit and some spice. The taste is more spice forward, Im having a hard time putting my finger on it but I do get a little cinnamon, there are also some medicinal flavors in there. Medium carbonation medium body.

JazzyJ (4) - Washington, USA - DEC 31, 2011 does not count
UPDATED: JAN 2, 2012 Pours a deep/dark amber color with a nice tan foam head. Very easy going compared to the other Bridgeport brews I have had. A great simple seasonal brew (winter).

onceblind (3966) - Denver, Colorado, USA - DEC 29, 2011
Slightly cloudy dark amber under a creamy head that unfortunately doesnt last too long. Smells like a winter English Strong Ale. Some burnt toffee and a mild tone of oak are on the nose, with some odd herbal bitterness. Taste is a little too bitter and herbal, with not enough sweetness to back it up. There is some sweetness present, but it tastes a little burnt and woody. Perhaps a little metallic as well.

Aroma bread and fruit. Some hops and spice. Flavor is the same. Thin body. Not much to remember this one by.
