COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

At a tasting, thanks zvikar, smallish head, crystal clear brown colour, aroma of cola, dark bread and hints of charred wood, flavour of chocolate cake with some woodiness, a touch coarse bitterness and some sourness that do not blend together well but still quite drinkable.

355 ml brown bottle. Pours a clear mahogany color with a thich tan head. Malty plus aromas. Medium body with creamy mouthfeel. Semi-dry malty flavor. Nice rich blend of dark malt flavors with slightly dry finish. OKAY.

Bottle. Best Goose Island I’ve had. Deep brown color. Some head. Taste is slightly of fruit cake. Aroma is a pleasant malty sweet one. Nice.

Nothing too fancy here. Solid, very drinkable, and strong enough. The rye adds a nice touch.

Almost is like a porter. Dark full bodied with some notes caramel. Is a good choice. Not able to find this up north ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Claves77 (151) - Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 3, 2013
Mild malt smell, dark body translucent to the light, lacking something in taste. Bland smooth flavor but lacking body. Overall a good winter offering that isn’t too spiced.

MIBRomeo (2492) - Wisconsin, USA - FEB 28, 2013
Pours an off brown color with a nice off white well laced head. Aroma of a lightly hopped brown ale. Smooth well coated palate. Easy to drink sweet sugars with some nice grassy hops and a dry finish. Enjoyable.
