Not bad, but there are better Winter Warmers out there. Apperance was nice, poured a reddish brown with a figer or so of foam. The head lasted for some time. Looked tasty Aroma, ale yeast was present, along with some fruit, cherry and current. Initially the taste is fruity with the cherry and current flavors coming through, a nice balanced hop flavor is clear throughout the taste (I would assume Northern Brewer or Bullion hops). The balance of the initial flavors is overshawdowed on the back in by strong ale yeast flavors. Mouthfeel is normal, and the drinkability is somewhat lower than expected. Avery Old Jubilation is a very similar beer in flavor, but much better in my opinion.

Egentligen inte en öl som håller för denna årstid. Det blir kallt i gammla goa US ibland men här är det f..ing mörkt oavsett väder. Saknar humle och body. Inget för mass möjligen Willy..b. Fin färg, svag på skum och karaktär. Hoppades på mer.

Rödbrun med ytterst lite skum. Doftar lätt bränt, lite malt. Smaken ganska omgående bitter, tämligen torr. Eftersmaken ganska ordentligt humlig & tämligen lång. Gillar att den inte är så söt.

Served in sampler at brewery. Minimal white head, dark amber beer. Bitter taste and overly bitter finish. Decent strong ale but not outstanding.

A decent winter ale. Very flavorful with strong malt and hopps backbone. Not overly spiced. Pours reddish brown with a tan head. Had at bittles and cans ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

This is not really doing it for me. It has an exaggerated malt profile that just tastes kind of worty and weird to me. It is cloudy orange brown w/ a short lived head. It is just really sweet w/ a ton of harsh grain husk taste and just loads of simple tasting sugars. This beer is honestly a bit difficult to drink even slowly. I appreciate good malty beers but this is a swing and a miss for sure.
