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.

NachlamSie (3000) - Denver, Colorado, USA - FEB 25, 2009
bottled on January 20, 2009, sampled at O’Hare. Pours a brown hue, fairly clear. The aroma is heavily nutty with a burned chocolate note. The mouthfeel is medium light, I was expecting something even thinner. A little sugar, hazelnut, a dash of cotton candy, toast, and a rye finish make up the flavor. I was expecting a straight up mild ale, so I was pleasantly surprised with this one. It’s a reasonable drink.

noncaloric (684) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - FEB 24, 2009
Pours a slightly hazy amber to copper brown. A finger of off white head leaves generous lacing. The first sniff yields a pleasing malt aroma, slightly caramelized, but the nose quickly fades. Flavor is very nutty and distinctly bitter without much aroma hops. This comes off well here. Some orange peel and perhaps some cinnamon. Rye flavors emerge from the caramel malts in the finish, and there’s some weissbier banana-clove notes in the linger.

Pour is a murky looking brown with a average tan head. Aroma is some rye and grain but nothing really stands out. Flavor is again some rye and spice but overall kinda watery and bland. I didn’t get a lot of what others got off this beer. A watery brown ale more or less.

Hophead22 (2879) - Redlands, by way of Wisconsin,, California, USA - FEB 18, 2009
12oz bottle from drewbeerme, thanks Andrew. Dark amber pour with a white head. Smells of rye and somewhat toasty malt. Nice and smooth with a little bite in the end, some caramel, pretty good drinker

vyvvy (4737) - Florissant, Missouri, USA - FEB 16, 2009
Pours clear chestnut brown with a dirty tan head. The aroma has toasted malt, hazelnuts, rye and a hint of bitter hops. Seems both smooth and crisp. Medium body that starts smooth, then semi-sharp carbonation comes in making it a bit rough. The flavor starts like the aroma, but the finish has spicy hops and lots of dryness from the rye. This is a very nice beer and hope this stays a seasonal from them.

WabashMan (1020) - Noblesville, Indiana, USA - FEB 11, 2009
A decent rye, though not up to the quality of the two Founders ryes of note. Pour is very nice...a very dark amber, with a nice, light tan head. Nose is somewhat dominated by the rye. Flavor has some nice spice notes, but it’s just too short in the finish to get top marks. Good flavors...but they disappear all to quickly.

fidelis83 (2208) - Clinton, Iowa, USA - FEB 10, 2009
Pours dark amber with a 2 finger solid beige head that has great retention, and leaves some lacing. Aroma is biscuity, grassy, straw and a bit spicy. Flavor is much the same with a nice grainy spiciness, sourdough, earthy hops. Finish is dry and spicy with earth tones and slightly bitter hops. Really nice stuff.

Narnad (1504) - Wonder Lake, Illinois, USA - FEB 8, 2009
Pours an amber color with a red tinge and a very thin wispy white head. Light aroma of caramel malt and rye. First flavor I got was a spicy noble hops taste, moving into a light rye and biscuit malt flavor. The flavor as a whole is pretty light. Overall I wasn’t too impressed with the beer when compared to other stuff of theirs but it was still a very drinkable beer.
