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!

Dogbrick (7567) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - DEC 27, 2009
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.

Dark brown with a small tan head. Aroma of nutmeg and cinnamon. Flavor of nutmeg, spices and malt. Alcohol is well hidden. Ok, but too heavily spiced.

12 ounce bottle, a cool snowman on the label. Pours a dark copper color with a medium beige head. A sweet caramel and spiced candy nose. The flavor is very nice; sweet caramel, light apricot, some spices such as cinnamon and nutmeg, nothing too huge. Smooth and tasty.

sfontain (790) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - DEC 9, 2012
12 oz bottle. Dark red; medium smooth beige head; negligible lacing. Nondescriptly spicy nose; vegetable; pumpkin? Flavor bready malt with the same sweet spiciness and vegetable notes; medium bitter piney hop finish. Medium mouthfeel. Not a bad beer but I’d never buy this as a 6-pack.

On tap at Oakroom, pours light brown, has a very strong spicy aroma of cinnamon... plenty of alcohol in the taste... a bit too much cinnamon and ginger for my palate...

On Tap at the Oak Room in Athens. Dark, with almost no head. Malty, hopy aroma with some evident spice. Tingly mouth feel, with obvious alcohol. Ginger is the most evident spice, along with cinnamon.

popery (1347) - San Francisco, California, USA - DEC 23, 2010
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.
