Toffee brown, medium-bodied, with a creamy head and an aroma of raisins and freshly baked dark bread. Mild Winter’s rich caramel malt and spicy rye flavors are sure to take the bite out of whatever Old Man Winter brews up for you this year.

XmnwildX12 (2079) - Farmington, Minnesota, USA - MAY 11, 2013
Poured from a bottle, dark amber pour with a decent sized white head. Aroma of some malt and a bit copper/metallic. Taste of malt, nuts, a light toffee caramel, not bad. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

astrofrk (341) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - MAY 10, 2013
Red-amber. Small, white head. Aroma: Grains, rye, malt. Flavor: Multi-grain bread, rye, hops. Grainy finish. When I think of beers with a grainy taste, I think of some of the worst beers on the shelf. This one is decent though nothing great, just drinkable.

Ostomo517 (73) - Norton Shores, Michigan, USA - APR 24, 2013
Pours dark brown. Nose is a bit metallic and otherwise malty. Total malt bomb and a little hot. A pretty middle of the road beer for Goose Island but winter appropriate.

jmcgavin12 (492) - Madison, USA - APR 19, 2013
Pours a deep mahogany with lots of toffee and caramel on the nose. Also a bit of roasted delicious malts. The taste is sweet and spicy with notes of rye as well. Finishes a bit bittersweet like fine dark chocolate. A very enjoyable beer

Fredis23 (515) - Hickory Hills, Illinois, USA - APR 12, 2013
Dark brown, good head, lots of lacing, medium body. First sip is bitter and reminds of toasted dark rye bread. While rye does not last long, bitterness does. Easy and enjoyable to drink in cold weather. Pretty good.

johnnyoski (445) - Macomb, Michigan, USA - APR 11, 2013
Bottle. Clear, light brown pour with a thin tan head. Caramel, cocoa and nutty aroma. Nutty flavor with rye to give it some bite. Tones of roasted malt, coffee and wood are also present. Dry texture with average carbonation. Not bad, but I was hoping for more unique flavors that are present in other Winter seasonal beers.
