Braudog (5903) - Traveling the USA, Missouri, USA - DEC 30, 2012
Bottle. Pours midnight red, the head quite big and not going anywhere. Thereís a big chestnutty aroma here. This drinks with a full-bodied character, overflowing with cooked sugar, pine bark, and varnish. (#4879, 12/30/2012)

Mora2000 (5856) - McKinney, Texas, USA - APR 24, 2011
The beer pours a dark brown color with a small white head. The aroma is caramel and toffee malt with some holiday spices: mainly nutmeg but a few other spices are mixed in as well. The flavor is full of holiday spices and caramel, as well as quite a bit of grassy and piney hops. This is definitely a highly-hopped winter warmer. The alcohol is also present and seems like it is higher than 7 percent. Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation. Not bad.

PorterPounder (5711) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - NOV 21, 2007
Tallahassee, Fl. - Market Square Liquors, 12 oz bottle. Dark copper pour, khaki head, sticky lacing. Vegetable-like aroma with hints of rhubarb, Christmas spices and a hint of cinnamon. Flavor presents some chocolate, Christmas spices with a citrusy back bone. Good subtle bitterness permeates throughout. Thickish mouthfeel, overall a decent winter warmer.

Draft at pony bar with Brendan, Andrew and Feng. Pours a deep murky amber with light off white lacing. Pours a hazy amber with no head. Aroma is faint malt, pretty bland. Mouthfeel is medium to thin with bland notes of malt, fruit, pils, light cocoa and spice.

Cornfield (5552) - Oak Forest, Illinois, USA - MAY 9, 2007
This has a deep garnet body and a creamy tan head that, while not lasting too long, manages to do some thick lacing. The aroma is a tad light but pleasasnt, smokey malts with a nutty bitterness. Much more to the flavor, rich malts lightly roasted, woodiness, and a mild grapefruit and pine hoppiness. Although named as a Winter warmer, this does just fine in the Spring as well.
