Tap at House of Beers in Dunedin, FL. Rich deep crimson pour with a very clingy white head. Cinnamon and pit fruit - really nice winter beer.

Pours a beautiful auburn-brown with a white head that lingers as a small lacing. The aroma is gentle malt with a hint of fresh hops. Clean & inviting the first taste. First sip...Wow! An amazing explosion of vanilla, fruitiness, possibly cinnamon and other fruity flavors. Very drinkable! Finishes lingering vanilla and nutty. Do a quich swish and pick up an interesting taste of vanilla complimented with toasty-Brady malts, hazelnut and an interesting fruit background. Taste Cold Mountain with a Rogue Hazelnut Brown Nector.!

chinchill (1887) - South Carolina, USA - NOV 30, 2012
UPDATED: FEB 22, 2014 2012 version. Pours a beautiful, clear mahogany color, with a short-lived beige head. Lacing is good nonetheless. The beer is mildly spicy and a bit fruity, including raspberry and a surprising apricot note in the nose that’s present but subdued in tasting. Cinnamon and plenty of vanilla in both; perhaps too much vanilla in the flavor. O: A fine winter warmer mis-classified as a "fruit/herb/vegetable" beer.

Bomber----->nonic. Pours a clear light brown with a small, thick white head and pretty good lacing. Aroma is roasted malt and cinnamon. Flavor has roasted malt, cocoa, and slight spice. Decent creamy palate with a tad bit of carbonation. Nice winter beer that I will definitely revisit.

Draught. Pours a clear amber color with a smallish tan head. I get almost no nose off this. Taste is malty and interesting, with a bit of caramel in there. Pleasant bite to this beer.

UPDATED: FEB 2, 2013 Poured from a 12 oz bottle. Amber/brown color. Small off-white head. Doesn’t last long. Aroma of malt, spices, maybe some bread. The taste is good: malty, spicy, some hops, maybe some nuttiness. Has a good balance.

Caramel and vanilla aroma. Vanilla flavor. Great clarity but head disappears quickly. Full palate but not a big fan of the oaklike aftertaste.

Bomber from kinz. Pours clear copper with an off-white head. Aromas of vanilla, toffee, nuts, dark rich malts. Flavors of sweet malts, vanilla, toffee, caramel, some bread, and faint hops. Nicely balanced, mouthfeel is a little thin.
