Poured from the bottle, pours a deep red. Thin prevalent head, and nice lacing. Flavor is very nice! Great maltiness and hop bitterness. Sort of spicy hop. Flavor has European influence, like a ESB. I really like the balance in this beer!

brown with dusty brown head that fades to smooth, oily surface. Aroma of clean caramel, grassy, dusty yeast, hint of berry. Light-to-medium body (a flaw for the style, I want it a bit heavier!) old bitter leaf and light caramel flavor... ok on this end.

one of the best christmas beers ive had, and one ive waited awhile to find, but well worth the wait. black like a porter, smell is malty sweet with a little spice so as not to be cloying. a little roasty, the spice combines with everything instead of dominating the flavor. wonderful.

A chewy full bodied English Strong with good drinkability. Way to easy to put several of these down and at 7%, you’d better check yourself. Pours a gorgeous dark mahagony with a smallish beige head that fades quickly. Caramel malt is strong in the aroma and mixed well with subtle earthy spices and a hint of roastiness. Round mouthfeel with a bitter whack that sneaks up in the long bittersweet finish. A sturdy brew that would pair well with a turkey or ham dinner. Lightly sweet, but not a dessert wassail.

12 oz. bottle. Pours dark brown with some ruby hints. The aroma is toffee, vanilla, figs, and some warm, brandy notes. The flavor is dark, fruity sweetness, with a mild bitterness balancing nicely. The palate is medium, syrupy, sticky, and acidic. The aftertaste is fairly sour, and fades quickly. Overall, this is an interesting and tasty beer, but the mouthfeel is lacking.

What aroma there is, is just odd and not at all pleasing, so right off the bat this beer is not inviting at all. The taste is true to the aroma; I just found it funky. I guess it’s a roasted malt flavor, but who cares; it’s icky.

12 oz bottle from a six pack. Pours a dark mahogany with a 1/2" off white head. Head retention and lace is almost non existent. Rich malty nose with a hint of hoppiness. Some raisin bread in the aroma as well. Taste starts sweet, with the rich malty flavor the nose promised. Hints of dark fruit in the flavor too. Finishes bitter when the hops finally make themselves known. Full bodied with low carbonation. Nice holiday brew.

rougeau13 (1940) - Richmond, Texas, USA - NOV 10, 2011
Dark, clear, ruby-brown with a resilient, frothy beige head that laces thickly. Aroma of toast, spice, dark fruit, and nuts. Taste is malty and a touch sweet, with a bit of spice and a mild bitterness. Somewhat dry, medium bodied and smoothly carbonated. Very easy to drink and very well balanced; definitely one of Full Sail’s better brews.

Ah the aroma and flavor in this delicious brew! Those that have not tried a ’winter warmer’ just don’t know what they are missing!! Malty sweet but not overbearing. Definitely a great brew to have by the fireside to fight off those wintry chills! Would make for a great pairing with some warm bread pudding!
