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.

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 Yearís last night and everyone commented highly on Ebenezer, even those who generally donít 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 thatís worth taking a closer look at when the opportunity arises.

Sweet and Fruity is definatly a great way to describe this ale. It smells like peaches, and the taste continues the peachy trend. This is one of my first ales from Bridgeport and I was fairly impressed. Nothing too exciting, but itís definatly a great beer to sit around a fire and relax with! What a pleasure!

UPDATED: JAN 26, 2009 Light reddish-brown with a very thin head. Faint aroma of hops, alcohol. Medium body, full mouthfeel. Mild flavor of hops, spice, sour. Unusual and not entirely pleasant. Weird aftertaste. The bottle I had two years ago was much better.

Thanks to a trade from pinkzambia. Nice deep red color with no head to speak of. One hell on a nice little unassuming beer. Sweet hard candy small with some toasty aromas. Some cinnamon tp. The taste is equally as pleasant. No hint of bitterness. Present and short aftertaste. Nothing to complex going on here, but sometime you want that.

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.

Does not do what it says on the bottle. Weak aroma, very malty with a hint of hops. "...winter warmer..." Iím afraid not, the flavor is way to mild and weak for a winter ale, might be ok as a summer ale but leave it on the self during the holidays. It does have a nice label though.

Malt and nuts. Very English tasting. Would go well with a cheese and assorted nut plate.

Bottle. Poured a deep amber to red color. Pine woods aroma with small head. Taste of sweet malts laced with vanilla that finish nicely dry with just a hint of cinnamon. Pretty nice winter brew and a very good buy for the buck.
