Dark amber color, medium head. Aroma is cherry. Mild tasting ale, mild malts and slightly spicy, although its more fruity than malty. Kind of an average and mild tasting beer, as winter warmers go. There is a slightly metallic taste. Mouthfeel is a little harsh. Finish is clean. Aftertaste is little bitter and somewhat fruity.

Dark bown with a slight haze to the beer. Nutty with a strong Caramel flavor. Liiked the light hops but seemed to be lacking a winter flavor that you look for in this type of beer. Did not get that overall good warm beer flavor that these should and will give off. Better luck next time Bridgeport.

Bottle, special procurement. Red with a thin white head. Cherries in the nose. Nice balance with slight sweetness rounded by a peppery aftertaste. Not bad.

heemer77 (5217) - Urbandale, Iowa, USA - DEC 11, 2008
Lightly hazy dark copper brown body with a light khaki head. The aroma is light and sweet with cake donut and hints of dried apricots. The body is highly carbonated, but it is not distracting. The taste is dried apricots and black tea. There is also some roast and hints of light coffee in the finish. A nice brew that was worth picking up.

Aroma is mint, light pine and fruit. The flavor is caramel, complex fruit, spices, a small hint of vegetables and a tart and dry finish.

Bottle courtesy of chickencoop. Reviewed from notes. Pours a medium brown with a thin, off white head. The nose brings a small amount of spice forward. I think I’m getting cinnamon and nutmeg, but never entirely sure. I really need to start having these beers with my spice rack nearby. A bit of caramel and toffee in there as well. Taste is a bit of doughy bread with light caramel and some spice. Light to medium body with good carbonation levels. Not at all overspiced, this drank pretty well.

CapFlu (4959) - Victoria, British Columbia, CANADA - FEB 12, 2003
(Bottle) Pours virtually no head and is a ruby-brown colour. Typical ale aroma of malt and molasses. Initial taste of watery malt, as stated below, then a mid-flavour peak of spice and strong malt. Finishes with a fizzy, hoppy and red wine flavour that fades into dry. Very delightful mix of flavours. Thanks to Crit for this great West Coast experience.

Draft at Murphy and sons. Tons of head on dark body. Carmel earthy aroma. Taste is somewhat bland. Not strong. Just not much going on I can distinguish. Not bad not good

ChainGangGuy (4653) - Woodstock, Georgia, USA - DEC 18, 2007
Appearance: Pours a clear, dark red-brown body with a medium, fizzy off-white head. Smell: Dark caramel with freshly-grated cinnamon, a whiff of hops, and notes of dark cherries. Taste: Mild malt flavor with a slight dark caramel sweetness. Hint of chocolate. A pinch of mulling spices blends with the cherry pie fruitiness. Only a very faint hint of hops near the semi-dry finish. Mouthfeel: Medium-body. Medium carbonation. Drinkability: While not the most remarkable example of the style, it is still fairly easy-drinking for a lighter winter warmer.
