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.

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.

On tap. Very mild brownish ale. Smooth palate with a subtle brown taste. Not bad ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

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.

Bottle in chicago. Great color and great winter style. Smooth and quite an impressive beer. Goose island did a great job once again.

stevencon (517) - 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.

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.

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.
