Cascade Frostkiller winter warmer, growler fill from Malt & Vine in Redmond, Wash. Could be the standard bearer for the style. Nice malty base with a stunningly sublime cinnamon and other spice infusion. Slightly sweet, but never overbearing. Sufficiently thick, but never heavy. Ends on a slight hoppy note. Recommended! A-

Off gold colour. Thin white head. Draught. Aroma is fruity without the citrusiness of many strongs. Warming with a nice malt note . Not much finish. Something seemed lacking. But withal, not a bad ale

Tap @ Bailey’s Cellar Fest [2008 Vintage]... Poured dark, cloudy burgundy with an off-white head. Sweet and worty. Some vegetable characters like tomatoes. Little bit of oxidization. Slight floral hops, candied sugars, and a sweet malty finish.

Dark amber pour with a beige head. Medium body with foamy carbonation. Malty with perhaps a touch of vanilla. Nicely resin/citrus finish. Very pleasant bitter ending. No trace of heat.
