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.

crossovert (7921) - Illinois, USA - JUN 2, 2013
Sweet, slight metal, bready malt, caramel, light spice. It is a decent brew but very metallic to me.

Ughsmash (7183) - Pewaukee, Wisconsin, USA - JAN 12, 2011
Bottled. Poured hazy reddish-amber with a sticky beige head. Caramel, chocolate, and iced tea on the nose with highlights of cloves and light detergenty notes. The flavor found deeper, aged caramel, molasses, and iced tea at the core.. spicy black pepper, clove, and nutmeg accents.. sweeter, nutty finish. Medium-bodied with just OK flow across the palate.. balance was solid. This was quite drinkable, but not great.

CaptainCougar (7132) - Columbia, Maryland, USA - DEC 15, 2007
Pours a transparent ruby mahogany with a small, frothy, spotty-lacing light tan head. Aroma of lightly sweet caramely and grainy English malts with a touch of citrusy hops. Body starts with some foamy carbonation and piny hops toward a thinner, bittersweet finish with some earthy drier malts. An ok English strong ale, but could be a little sweeter.

Ibrew2or3 (7101) - 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.

DuffMan (7032) - 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.

deyholla (7011) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - NOV 21, 2013
On tap at Tapwerks. Pours a clear amber red with a tan head that dissipates to the edges and laces. Aroma has notes of sweet grain and caramel with hints of earthy grain and biscuit. Flavor is similar with sweet grain and light caramel throughout with backing notes of biscuit and grass.

sebletitje (6895) - Enghien, BELGIUM - JAN 18, 2009
Courtesy of goodzoid10. Pours amber with tan head. Aroma of fresh piney hops with light presence of caramel malts as well as winter spices. Taste of floral hops and spices with notes of fruits - pineapple / grapefruit - malty with notes of caramel. Not too complex, easy to drink, overall feel was rather disappointing..

bb (6860) - Alamo, California, USA - JUL 30, 2004
Draft. Ruby beer with a nice off-white head. Nice hop profile-citrus and some spice- with some malt backing. Aroma of citrus hops. Light bitterness with an underlying roastiness. Well balanced.

marcus (6784) - Sacramento, California, USA - MAR 12, 2010
Pours dark brown with a generous tan head and a treacle aroma. There is a hearty chocolate malt flavor with tastes of raisin and spices. Not bad.

Plovmand (6611) - Helsinge, DENMARK - MAY 22, 2011
Bottle at Papsø. Pours hazy amber with a medium creamy off white head. The aroma is malt, sweet fruit and light citric earthy hops. The flavour is sweet malty, caramel and light hops.
