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.

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

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.

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.

Iphonephan (5286) - McLean, Virginia, USA - FEB 26, 2013
From a 12 oz bottle shared at Iona in Arlington VA. Pours a clear cola with a thick white head. Malty aroma with some pie spice notes. Soft mouthfeel with medium carbonation. Muted spice with caramel notes.

Beerman6686 (5835) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 20, 2013
This one poured a cloudy ruby red color with an off white head. Aroma was light spice, rye, toasted malt and caramel. Flavor was nicely balanced, with a bit of sweetness and a nice amount of spiceness too. Nice for a winter beer.

Pours a wonderful dark brown, but crystal clear. Tan head dissipates quickly, with much less lacing than I anticipated at the pour. Has a pleasant sweet aroma, but not fruity. Roasted malts dominate the taste, not heavy on the hops. However, there is a pronounced bitterness in the aftertaste that probably kept me from rating it higher. Overall, quite good.

Draft at proof. Amber pour with a fluffy tan head that laces all the way down. Aroma of sweet caramel malts, floral hops and light estery spices. Flavors leans a bit more toffee with touches of chocolate, almost mole like spice undertone with more estery yeast. Not too shabby.
