On tap at Dark Horse, a very spicy aroma predominantly nutmeg . The flavoring is similar definitely remind you of Christmas, pretty good

12oz bottle (8.75% ABV) - beautiful Chestnut pour with khaki head and good lacing. Nose is potpourri, sugar, and toffee. Pine bitterness. Roast bitterness. Almost minty. This is what you get when you cram all of the Christmas desserts and candy at the same time while washing it down with cold coffee. Complex or a mess: dunno. Surprisingly dry, prolly due to the ABV. If I didn’t know any better I’d say this was a scotch ale and Christmas showed up. Odd but I like it.

Nice. Good malt base with nutmeg and other spices. Needs a bit more carbonation and hops tho. Solid B. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bottle. Pours a very dark brown color with a smallish light tan head on it. Nose has a lot of spices in there, most notably clove to me. Taste is pretty spicy to me still, but I can get a little bit of roasting in there as the base. OK, but I’d prefer fewer spices.

Bottle. Dark brown with a little head. Strong allspice and anise aroma. Tastes like a cross between a gingerbread and windmill cookie.

I honestly still haven’t figured out what a winter warmer is supposed to be. Pours a muddy brown with a finger of head. wtf? Smells like spices. Nutmeg, cinnamon a little, and a bit of spicy hops. Almost curry-like. wtf? Taste is a little bread, some nutmeg again, more nutmeg, and a bit of vegetable flavor. Um. wtf? Finish is surprisingly clean. wtf?

Tastes like Christmas. Balanced notes of nutmeg, cinnamon and clove. Not too sweet, not too boozy.

9/27/13. Bottle says 8.75%. Pours opaque brown with a very thin off-brown head. Aroma is clove, nutmeg, licorice, earthy, touches of cocoa, brown sugar, cinnamon; certainly smells like a winter warmer. Taste is spicy, cocoa, some coffee, alcohol, hint campfire smoke, licorice, brown sugar; finish is subtle, bitter chocolate. This is excellent. Nice lacing. Very full-bodied. Medium-low carbonation. This may have just become my new favorite winter seasonal. This is really excellent; highly flavorful, strong, warming, tasty. This is notch above. Well crafted.

This is a good spiced winter ale. Nice flavor, the spices come through nice but aren’t over powering. I would like more body, but a good beer overall.

Bottle. Very dark pour with a smaller wispy head. Nice bold aroma of nutmeg, mild cinnamon, molasses, gingerbread - really nice.
