COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
LET THE MELTDOWN BEGIN!! Be cool on Frosty nights and share a Winter Warmer with your friends. This toasty, rich, robust spiced brown ale delivers a flurry of flavors including nutmeg and ginger. It goes down smooth and only gets better with each sip. WHO KNEW WARMING UP COULD BE SO COOL!

Bottle. Medium amber, transparent, smallish head. Aroma is ginger, vanilla, nutmeg, sugar cane and caramel. This seems kinda like a holiday spiced English strong ale. Pretty sweet with a little bit of bitterness in the finish. Sort of a funny aftertaste. Full mouthfeel. Decent holiday ale.

Served on tap at Dewey’s Pizza. If you like spicey winter beers, this will be good. Pours a caramel brown with an off white head. The spice taste is fairly pronounced and has a warming alcohol taste at the end. I don’t know the ABV but I’m assuming its aroun 7%. I taste ginger and cinnamon. This has a roasty, Toffee like malt taste through out which is complemented well by the spice. A very good winter beer.

BeerVirgin72 (880) - Pickerington, Ohio, USA - JAN 1, 2010
On tap at Elevator. Out of the 12 beers I tried, this on was my favorite. A truly nice winter warmer. Aroma was outstanding. Ginger bread and vanilla wafers. Flavor was cinnamon, gingerbread, caramel, black pepper. Sooo much going on here it was like a Christmas party in my mouth, but I loved it. Alcohol presence was pretty noticeable on this on.

Several mugs from a 5g keg, and my 400th Ohio beer. The beer is a mostly clear brown-amber color with a medium foamy beige head that diminishes steadily. Spice and malt in the nose. Medium body with flavors of sweet malt and spices, piney hops and a bit of fruit. The finish is sweetly spiced wit a mild hoppy aftertaste. Decent overall.
