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.

A step up from your average Bud but not a very good representitive of the style. It comes of very malty and thereís something sweet in the nose that I couldnít put a finger on and didnít enjoy.

Pours deep amber with creamy beige head and foamy lacing. Notes mostly of pine needles. Taste is similar to aroma, though less bitterness than expected.

Fratto (2523) - Arlington, Texas, USA - FEB 9, 2011
Bottle from Cavie. Reddish pour with a small white head. Aroma is spiced, a little roasty, and nuts. Taste is baking spices, a little caramel, moss, and molasses. Spices come way out in the finish in a way that I donít really like.

Started off ok, but second impression was not good. There just isnít much of interest happening with this beer. It is predominately malt flavor, with only the slightest complexities. Not worth coming back to. So far this brewer is not impressing me.

JazzyJ (4) - Washington, USA - DEC 31, 2011 does not count
UPDATED: JAN 2, 2012 Pours a deep/dark amber color with a nice tan foam head. Very easy going compared to the other Bridgeport brews I have had. A great simple seasonal brew (winter).

BigSound (196) - New York, USA - JAN 3, 2012
Pours a murky brownish red with two fingers of light tan almost off white head, pretty decent lacing. The nose is pretty mild, a little fruit and some spice. The taste is more spice forward, Iím having a hard time putting my finger on it but I do get a little cinnamon, there are also some medicinal flavors in there. Medium carbonation medium body. Overall not that bad but nothing Iíd go looking for. I do suppose this is a very aproachable winter warmer.

A - pours hazy reddish brown with two fingers off white head that laces well. S - Aromas of black tea leaves, woodiness, and coffee up front. Hints of cinnamon and spruce as well. M - creamy mouth feel from medium bodied brew. average carbonation. T - subtle tastes. Black tea (unsweetened sun tea) comes on first. Hints of wood, coffee, and spruce as well. O - average winter ale. drinklable, but feels more like tea than a winter ale. 5+ brownish red with two fingers of light tan almost off white head, pretty decent lacing. The nose is pretty mild, a little fruit and some spice. The taste is more spice forward, Iím having a hard time putting my finger on it but I do get a little cinnamon, there are also some medicinal flavors in there. Medium carbonation medium body. Overall not that bad but nothing Iíd go looking for. I do suppose this is a very aproachable winter warmer.

cbfobes (2150) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - JAN 1, 2013
On tap at OíRiley & Conway, pours a clear dark amber with pretty much no head, the aroma is sweet with a little bit of malt and just a hint of dark fruit, the flavor is pretty much like the aroma, sweet with not a lot going on, a little bit of malt in the finish, boring.

BrewDad (4628) - Olympia, USA - DEC 4, 2005
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.

Meh......another attempt to make a "winter" beer...another failure. I really think that making a beer that has a bunch of malt aroma/flavor should not automatically qualify as a winter beer.
