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.

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!

Pours a deep brown with a nice brown head. tastes of malts and spices, most notably nutmeg, and cloves. wish there was more of a hop presence though. my least favorite of the winter warmers this season.

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

Bottle. Pours a hazy dark walnut brown color with a medium light tan head. Caramel aroma with a bit of sweet fruit and roasted barley. Just a bit sweet, with cherry and molasses up front, some chocolate undertones and a very slight bitter end. Fairly soft mouthfeel. Good, but not as deep ("heavy"?) a roasted flavor as many of the other winter brews.

One of my earliest craft beers and I still remember how good it tasted. I would love to find another ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

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

Decent ale, nose smelled strongly of celery salt. Good balance of malt and bitterness with a nice warming effect.

Pours out a ruby red color. Nice frothy head that tan in color. Smell is of dry wood and mild flower aroma. Highly carbonated and the taste is a bit hard to feel out. Def fizzy and spicy.
