Brouwerij (957) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - NOV 12, 2012
Pours a deep hazy amber with two fingers of rocky white head, mostly diminishing with some lacing. Aromas is sweet malt, bread, grass and fruit. Flavor is sweet and malty up front, then hints of fruit, apples and pear. Finishes mild malt and slightly bitter. Moderate carbonation and relatively light body. Drinkable and enjoyable, but not particularly complex.

UPDATED: NOV 22, 2014 Bomber. Caramel malt aroma with notes of hops and a bit of spice. Pours dark amber colored with about a finger of tan head and some lacing. Starts with strong caramel malt flavors with subtle hoppy undertones. Finishes dry but smooth with hops and slight spice characters before being enveloped again by the sweet caramel malt that lingers on the palate. Nice winter warmer.

Lighter bodied than I was expecting for a winter beer. Poured from a bottle lighter in color than expected. I'm used to "winter" beers being thick and heavy. This is not. The aroma screamed west coast to me. I specifically smelled and tasted Chinook as flavor/aroma hops. Chinook in a winter warmer? Yes, my friend, BridgePort succeeds. Light is body, and hop character is moderately strong with the bitterness as low. This beer is not thick and syrupy, but crisp and dry. I get plum character in it. Very nice. I need to make a "winter warmer" like this.

Pours a four finger off-white head that fades slowly to a thin layer leaving some lace. Clear deep amber color. Light-medium carbonation and medium bodied. Spicy malty nose. Flavor is spicy with malts and hops balancing. Some bitterness at finish. $1.49 for a 12oz bottle from Johns Marketplace Portland, OR.

Nice strong ale, good to keep you warm in the winter. Slightly bitter malty drink, with good name.

Beerenberger (1567) - 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 (1400) - 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.

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.
