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.

poured from a bottle into a pint glass. Pours a dark brown color with a 1" head very grain driven nose. Crackers and rye grains along with roasted malts, chocolate and some toffee as well medium bodied, but lacking a bit in the flavor department. Mostly roasted malts, some coffee and grains. Very good smooth feel though. It doesn’t drop off at any point A very good and drinkable beer. Tasty, but seems to lack a slight bit for me

Pours a clear medium brown in color with a solid white head. Aroma of caramel and maple syrup. The taste is of Carmel, and malt. Has a bitter finish. I like it and its a solid choice, but for Goose Island I feel like they could have made it better.

Draft. Creay head that had nice retention, off white/tan. Nice rasion aroma with a slight malt backing. Very soft medium body beer. Malt forward, slight malt sweetness with a hint of caramel. Excellent beer. Nice mild winter seasonal.

Garito793 (241) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - AUG 15, 2011
A good beer, although I rarely drink it when the highly superior Christmas Ale is available. Dark, roasty malts with raisins and bread as advertised. A slight coffee bitterness and decent balance of hops.

FishBizkit (234) - Camp Hill, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 12, 2013
The pour is a dark brown with a white head that leaves lacing. The aroma is toffee heavy with some malt note standing out. The taste is light and creamy up front with the rye standing out in somewhat of a bitter ending. -Fish!

UPDATED: JUN 28, 2009 Burnt copper body with a thin white head, lots of sweet caramel and molasses in the mix, and the rye adds a nice unusual note on the finish.i
