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.

12 ounce bottle. Bright dark amber color with a medium-sized beige head. Assertive bready malt nose hints at nutty and spicy. Tart toasted malt flavor with a biting crisp dry grainy character. Finish is bitter with herbal hops.

Malty aroma that smells like bread. Pours a rich brown color that has a tinge of red. Flavors of rye, raisins, spices, and roasted malts. Nice crisp mouth feel with a bitter finish. Nice spiced beer.

Appearance-wise, its above average. Not much head to speak of, but great dark brown color. Aroma is excellent. Smells of roasted malt or maybe nuts. Taste is great too, like a mild stout/brown ale. Pretty carbonated, but suits this kind of beer well. This would make an awesome session beer.

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

Hudspart (538) - Byron Center, Michigan, USA - MAR 14, 2012
Bottle: Pours dark and thin looking. A little fizzy, but no head. Nice aroma of slight coffee and spices. Taste fuller than it looks, but not a lot of flavor. So-So.

I had this at Global Brew. Pours amber with a off white head. Taste burnt malt, Carmel. I thought this was so so. I would skip this down the road. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

MOboy (505) - Kansas City, Missouri, USA - DEC 27, 2008
Thick, off white foam floating above a crystal clear, copper red liquid with a steady stream of bubbles. Aroma of malt, rye bread. Spicey, rye flavor with a creamy mouthfeel full of malt. Hops balance this beer nicely but cannot make up for the lack of personality. A good beer but not very memorable.

Ceebs25 (503) - Naperville, Illinois, USA - DEC 15, 2008
12 oz bottle. Fairly light aroma, some light buttered popcorn, rye toast, and a minor woody hop. Had a good half bubbly, half cream off-white head on the pour, semi-translucent, and a reddish rust color. Different flavor from the aroma, spices, a wheat like presence, toasted barley, orange zest citrus, good linger with a prominent sweet grainy taste. Maybe nothing too special, but very enjoyable from my perspective.

13mikey (503) - New Hope, Minnesota, USA - FEB 7, 2010
12 oz bottle from TC Craft. Copper colored pour with a thick white head that dissipates a bit but still hangs around and leaves a nice lacing. Aroma is bready & slightly hoppy with a bit of rye. The flavor brings out the rye and the hops and leaves a slightly bitter hops finish on your tongue.
