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.

Subdued aroma for the style. Mostly caramel, some dried fruit. Good rubyish dark color with not much head to speak of. Nondescript mouthfeel, sweetish flavor, aroma and flavor very similar - no surprises. Bready malts with no layers of complexity.

Thick tasting. Has a nasty aftertaste.

Bottle, Aroma is malty, but not too strongly. Nice head and color. Taste is strongly malty with some spice coming through at the end with a hint of the alcohol. Pleasant and wintry. Overall a good ale.

Generous head, with large-ish white bubbles that laces down nicely. Found no dregs in this "bottle conditioned" ale. Deep amber color. Malt notes in the aroma. Nice, smooth palate, with a sweetish tendency, but the bitterness in the aftertaste balances this OK. A bit too bubbly maybe. Not bad.

If I could just smell this beer, it would be fine, but sadly, the taste is less rewarding. If I could prolong the brief initial instant of flavor of earthy hops, and mixes of deep malts, I would, but as amceachern said, the aftertaste is fowl.

More ho-hum than ho-ho-ho, this one’s got enough malt to fit the program, but is not too distinctive otherwise. Goes easier on the spices than some warmers do, so that may appeal to some.

PHXHOPLOVER (50) - LAVEEN, Arizona, USA - OCT 15, 2006
Pours dark brown with tan head, that remains for most of the beer, good lace. Lots of caramel malt flavor, with a little sourness that seems out of place. without the sourness it would be much better.

Another excellent addition to the Bridgeport lineup of distinct and very enjoyable ales. Recently snatched a sixer of these and numerous other goodies out for friends and familar during New Year’s last night and everyone commented highly on Ebenezer, even those who generally don’t drink craft styled brews. This rich and extremely full bodied ale pours very well and delivers a very nice woft of sweet malty aroma. Gives off a decent sized, long lasting head with good lacing. A rich and sweet tasting ale that delivers hints of toffee, caramel, and a hint of spiciness. I enjoyed this both as an afternoon warming drink as well as an after dinner teaser to go along with some left over Xmas cake. A double duty brew that’s worth taking a closer look at when the opportunity arises.

a nice start but iffy finish. kind of light taste. subtle fruit notes. distant like a dream. I’m watching the expendables sequel as I sip this.
