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.

FROTHINGSLOSH (6372) - GREENSBURG, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 21, 2010
Shipped to me by my wife on a trip to Portland. Sampled from a 12 oz brown bottle this beer poured an orange-brown color with a huge foamy beige head that lingered and produced great lacing. The aroma was malty, sweetish and had touches of molasses and fruity hops. The flavor was malty, toasty and nutty with notes of vanilla, cream, cherries and caramel. The finish was long, sweetish, malty and fruity. Moderately full bodied. Interesting.

This poured a darker amber to reddish color with a white head. Aroma was of light spices, caramel and some toffee. Flavor actually hinted at some belgian character, lots of sweetness and light spicess. OK

riversideAK (6040) - Shoreline, Washington, USA - NOV 22, 2007
Pours a nice dark mahagony color with a thin head. The aroma is fruity with hints of brown sugar and perhaps a little roast. A initial bitterness is followed by a sweet toffee like malt flavor. Accompanying the toffee sweetness are notes of bitter fruit, chocolate, and a little roast. Smooth, full bodied with a touch of alcohol in the finish.

Great bottle. It makes the beer look enticing. The taste, however, is fairly basic for this style. Light, but nothing beyond the ordinary.

egajdzis (5904) - Pennsburg, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 5, 2004
Poured a dark copper, purplish color with a small off white head that left nice lacing on the glass. Aroma of pine, citrus and grassy hoppiness, and some light vanilla as well. Taste of sweet and roasted malts, lots of fruits, and a light bitterness from the hops.

kramer (5737) - Sunbury, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 13, 2006
12 oz bottle, via acertain. Dark copper pour with a minimal fleeting white head, almost clear. Malty nose, slightly sweet with a cinnamon spice complement and light alcohol. Sweet malt up front with a slightly hoppy and spicy finish. Notes of cinnamon and yeast with light alcohol. Medium bodied with moderate carbonation yields a slightly sticky and cloying mouthfeel. I don’t especially care for the spice profile of this Christmas seasonal, there just doesn’t seem to be any complexity or depth to the flavor.

notalush (5645) - Denver, Colorado, USA - DEC 2, 2009
Hazy amber pour, with a fizzy head that disappears rather rapidly - mildly oaky nose, with a lot of toffee and treacle sweetness, mild fig, a touch of obviously intentional oxidized character, slightly buttery notes - flavor of semi-dry, biscuity malts up front, followed by light cask-ish notes, moderate toffee, a touch of plum, light chocolate - finish is lightly bitter, with mild buttery notes - quite authentically british - fairly tasty.

nuplastikk (5615) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - JUN 2, 2013
12oz bottle. Murky amber-brown body. Foamy off-white head. Toffee, amber malt tones, some Christmas fruitcake/wassail action. It’s not really a great beer by any mean, but it manages to approximate the style well enough. Rich and malty, a spiced ESB.

Skyview (5464) - Papoose Jct, Minnesota, USA - DEC 11, 2007
Picked up a single 12-oz bottle at the Papago Brewing Company tavern in Phoenix, AZ. Pours a semi-clear, dark copper amber brew with a creamy and thick off-white head that has some good retention and lacing. Aroma of dark caramel malt, some flowery hops, apple skin, and some pitted dark fruits. Taste is medium bodied, light carbonation with flavors of dry caramel malt, apple skin and some dried lemon zest. Finish has a dry bitter aftertaste with a caramel malt and apple skin aftertaste.

A nice attempt at a winter ale, but had a poor musky aftertaste that was unsettling for me.
