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.

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.

Fredis23 (515) - Hickory Hills, Illinois, USA - APR 12, 2013
Dark brown, good head, lots of lacing, medium body. First sip is bitter and reminds of toasted dark rye bread. While rye does not last long, bitterness does. Easy and enjoyable to drink in cold weather. Pretty good.

screigh (511) - 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.

stevencon (510) - Sarasota, Florida, USA - NOV 29, 2012
Brown with white head. Light grainy rye and toffee aroma. Similar taste with a bit of a sour mash rye finish. This beer is medium body dark full of flavor and low alcohol, I want more.

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.

Sizzler80 (502) - Dublin, IRELAND - FEB 10, 2012
Deep ruby red pour with a small white head and lacing. Very aromatic. Hops, dark fruit, caramel, grass, whisky, bread. Quite bitter from the hops and sweet from the caramel and dark fruit, raisin. There is a very slight warmth from the liquor. The flavours are more subdued but all are there. Slight spice, tea and pepper. All in all an enjoyable brew. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
