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.

Kind of fruity, banana like esters, strong body and good aftertaste. The flavor hangs around mid-tongue as the carbonation rolls off the tongue. Slightly dry but well built. It is also a beautiful shade of red with a mild carbonation and minimal yet lasting head. Indeed it does warm those winter nights. Or maybe it is just the woodstove I am leaning on. This makes any Ebeneezer smile.

Ebenezer Ale has a great malty/caramel aroma. Taste is almost identical with rich flavors in every sip. There wasn’t much carbonation which makes this beer perfect for winter relaxation.

BelvidereIPA (140) - Belvidere, Illinois, USA - DEC 11, 2011
Bottle to pint glass. Pours a dark copper, with a distinct red tint. Limited, white head that dissipates quickly. Lot of malts, with a roasted caramel scent.

Quiver (140) - Augusta, Georgia, USA - OCT 20, 2005
Bottle Conditioned - Surprising good winter ale. Pours a burnt ruby read. Great head, great lacing. I probably drank it a few degrees too cold. So I started off good, and got better. Taste is somewhat complex. bittersweet chocolate, leather, peach, and maybe a few tiny notes of cherry. a perfect mix of not being overbaring, but not being boring either. Lots of different tastes going on, but none of them overpower your tasebuds. It had more carbonation than I expected, but still maintained a good palet. Good Brew

rotoguru (126) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - DEC 28, 2006
UPDATED: DEC 30, 2006 Reddish brown with thick tan head that lasts. Blah blah brown ale, roasty, blah blah blah. I guess I had high expectations after reading some other ratings. There are no sweet sugared plums and cherries to be had... there was no fruitcake, but that’s a good thing since that is not something I want my beer to taste like. Alas, no tidings of joy or goodwill to all men. Maybe I just need a few more helpings of the Christmas Spirit. Overall, a glorified brown ale but a decent beer none-the-less.

I miss this beer in the winter now. I live in Ohio, and they don’t send us this stuff. It’s still one of my favorites.

edfitz (118) - Toledo, Ohio, USA - JAN 8, 2007
Very unusual, but nice, aroma. Cherries, maybe? Appears dark red with good amount of head. Malty flavor, cherries again, very good. Better flavor as it warms. Malty and good.

chokmah33 (118) - San Luis Obispo, California, USA - DEC 18, 2008
Aromas of apple cider, apricot, banana mild herbal spruce note, hint of piney hops. Carmel bready malts. Flavor is medium roasted malt, black bread, molasses. Along with apricot, dark fruits (cherry, plum) Ample hops, but not something that stands out as much of highlight. Easygoing palate, overcarbed,

deprogram (115) - Renton, Washington, USA - DEC 14, 2007
I like this beer, especially today, on a balmy, rainy fall evening. Lovely color in the glass, fine-grained, unremarkable head - although it does stick around. Faint nose of roasted malts, seconded by sweet hops, a well-balanced mating that follows into the flavor and mouthfeel. No overwhelming sugars and spices, but this is definitely nice. A totally reasonable winter choice!

This reminds me a little of the IPA, but not quite as good and not quite as bitter. Dark brown in color and tastes a little like a brown. A little bite and a little better beer than I was expecting
