3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
A: The beer pours a dark copper color with a very ample tan head.
S: An interesting combination of scents. A lot of spice such as all spice and cinnamon, along with some citrus (mostly orange), and a substantial caramel component.
T: The taste is similar to the nose. The citrus is quite dominant on the front end of the sip. The spices are a bit more muted, but the sweet caramel is the main flavor throughout the middle of the sip. There is a slight pine bitterness on the finish.
M: The body is medium and the carbonation is surprisingly moderate, considering the massive head.
D: The moderate alcohol and pleasant flavors make this beer quite drinkable. I’m not necessarily the biggest fan of Winter Warmers, but this one has a nice combination of flavors and aromas.
