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.

Well crafted beer, sweet toffee malts in the aroma, great rubycopper colour. Flavour is mainly sweet toffee malt with some breadiness that finishes with some great biterness.

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

blklab2007 (2118) - Connecticut, USA - MAR 9, 2009
bottle poured a light brown color with a thick one finger light tan head that retained well. aroma has sweet caramel, grains, light spice, and a bit of nuts. mouth feel is medium and the carbonation average. flavor has some brown malt, light bitterness, slight hops, and metallic touches. the rye does not carry tremendous weight here and the finish is somewhat flat with malt and bitterness.

Grainy, toasted malts, and sweet toffee aroma. Caramel malty sweet, spice and grains, buttered biscuits, all for flavors. Somewhat chewy mouthfeel. Not real complex but ok.
