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.

Bottle. Pours a rich amber with a generous fluffy white head. Smells malty with some grassy hops. Tastes very aggressive for a malt, a sharp and semi spicy malt presence with a balancing hop presence. Very good . tons of flavor and very drinkable.

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.

screigh (625) - Fort Wayne, Indiana, USA - DEC 30, 2008
Poured a dark copper color with a small head. I can smell the rye but cannot taste it. Taste is a bit tart and a little dry. I even get the slightest hint of tobacco in the flavor. While this isn’t mind blowing it is very decent and differnt from what I would have thought a "winter" would be.

ARMed (625) - Garnet Valley, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 16, 2012
Clear red-brown winter brew with tons of flavor. A nice hoppy finish dominates the palate with hints of raisins, caramel, spruce and smoked malt. Head is creamy and abundant when swirled. Head holds it shape for a nice long period showing some full body and complexity. Overall a very good and drinkable winter lager.
