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.

12oz bottle. Deep, murky amber-brown. Nice lively head that dies down after a minute or two. Mellow sweet malt, borwn sugar aroma. Rich and sweet, full bodied. Deep caramel and nut flavors, with a very pleasantly bitter, orange-vanilla undertone in the finish. The rye does give it a slightly odd taste, but also imparts a festive quality, which is nice in the winter. Better than I expected it to be for sure.

Bottle as an extra in trade from FlssmrBrewer. Thanks! Pours a clear dark maroon with short lived beige head. Smell is dark caramel and mild rye. Taste is smooth and balanced with a malty caramel and rye flavor with a very light balancing bitterness. Still leans a touch sweet which is a nice change from the hoppy rye beers I tend to see. Enjoyable beer.

Didn’t really notice the rye. Malty, carmally, fairly weak on flavor and boring.

Meatmallet (126) - Salem, Illinois, USA - MAR 13, 2009
Dark copper color with a thin off white/tan head. Left lots of lacing. Smell is of sweet malts and a hint of rye spiciness and a faint hopps aroma.Very good taste. There is a hop bitterness to start before giving way to the mild caramel malts.Very smooth and drinkable. Carbonation is just right.

UPDATED: MAR 25, 2009 Tap. Super easy to drink. This beer is one that I could drink tons of at a bar. Nice malty flavor and aromas with a dash of rye. Great flavors and aromas without being overpowering or heavy. Medium-light crisp palate. 7,4, 7, 4, 15 = 3.7 Bottle. Pours to a dark ruby brown body with a very thin sheen white head and nice spotty lacing. The aroma is very heavy rye malts and cascade-like hops. The flavor is a ton of rye bread and a nice mild chocolate malt. Some subtle cascade-like hops. Really balanced/blended flavors. The palate has that rye feel. It is medium bodied and very clean. 7, 4, 8, 3, 15 = 3.7

On tap at three Cellars on Goose Island Night. Aroma was mild sweet caramel malt,little hints of hopping,flavor was slightly sweet caramel malting and that distinct zing of rye. I’m surprised that previous reviews ween’t tasting the rye,because it jumped out at me. Pleasant tasting malt,a perky hop and rye boost,very nice brew
