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.

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.

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.

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.

jebert (500) - Watertown, Wisconsin, USA - JAN 31, 2009
Pours a reddish-cooper color with huge foaming head mostly lasting, leaving some beautiful lacing on the glass. Nose is barley and malt with a suggestion of carmel. Mouthfeel is very creamy and soft. Full flavored with tastes of barley, malt and carmel. Finishes on a hoppy note but not bitter. A well crafted beer that can stand up to a winter feast of roast beef, potatoes and carrots.

12 oz bottle. Thanks William. First rating in a while, glad the site’s back up! As for the beer...Not sure what to make of this one. Aroma and color is close to a Brown Ale, with just a small off-white head of foam. Mouthfeel is very smooth- pleasant. But- very sweet upfront, and then turns a bit sour & spicy towards the middle and finish, and then the sweetness kicks back in big-time and lasts and lasts and lasts. Hate to say this isn’t a favorite of mine. Reminds me a bit of my homebrew right at the time I’m bottling it- very sweet, not much alcohol, and altogether unfinished.

Pours a deep mahogany with lots of toffee and caramel on the nose. Also a bit of roasted delicious malts. The taste is sweet and spicy with notes of rye as well. Finishes a bit bittersweet like fine dark chocolate. A very enjoyable beer

wheninhell (488) - chicago, Illinois, USA - JAN 9, 2009
crystal clear copper body with a great lasting off white head that leaves beautiful lacing. Solid toffee aroma with a hint of vanilla and just a bit of orange brightness. Bittersweet caramel vanilla raisin flavor with some spicy pine and a hint of orange. long balanced bittersweet toffee/caramel raisin orange finish lingering dry spicy pine and tart raisin. light to medium body. at first seems like an fairly uninteresting session beer but when you really give it some thought it becomes quite complex.

screigh (472) - 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.
