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.

Mediocre toffee colored pour. Tastes like it looks, which is simple and forgettable.

Bottle to sampler cup. Poured a dark orange / brown . Had a smokey flavor, with some hop notes & decent subdued malt flavor. Pretty good, but maybe on the watery side.

Pours a darker dull brown amber with a thin bubbly white sudsy head. Smells like an ESB, wet grains, spicy toasted malts, caramel, light floral hop bite. This stuff is very mellow, a rye ESB, softly spicy, softly malty, softly bitter, slightly chewy and bready, light floral hops. Medium/light bodied with sharp carbonation.A really nice balance for very drinkable beer. I really need to find more of this...can’t seem to find this in this area very easy.

A decent winter ale. Brown color pour with a off-white head. Smell of malts and spice. Flavor is slightly nutty, spicey, and sweet. Not a bad brown ale. I would choose Sam Adams winter over this one.

mybrainhurts (390) - North Dakota, USA - MAR 9, 2009
Grainy, toasted malts, and sweet toffee aroma. Caramel malty sweet, spice and grains, buttered biscuits, all for flavors. Somewhat chewy mouthfeel. Not real complex but ok.

Draught @ BTAH. Pours clear, dark amber, with a fluffy off-white head. Nose is a bit toasty, just a bit of breadcrust, hint of dark brown sugar sweetness. Hard to get a handle on. Taste is toasty, breadcrust, with a nice lush, slightly roasty finish. There’s a sweetness there from the rye that’s held in check by the dryness. Slight hop character, blends in with the rye. Restrained carbonation, medium body.

Dark pour with tan white clingy head. Malty aroma, oatmeal, grain, light caramel and bready. A bit watery not thick. Beer tastes better when warmer.

12 oz bottle. Pours a reddish, toffee brown with off white head. Aroma is lightly roasted malts, light toffee. Taste is dark bread, roast malt, hint of vanilla possibly. A smooth drinker....a really nice winter offering from Goose Island, will buy again.

This one poured medium brown with a moderately long lasting head. The malt reminded me of caramel with brown sugar, but not sticky sweet, and having a slightly dry rye edge. The hops balanced well and were a spruce and herbal combo. It drank easily and cleanly. Very well made and one you could drink more than one of at a time.
