COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Our ever-changing spiced winter seasonal. A tasty brew that complements all your holiday festivities. It is typically malty in body, lightly hopped, and rounded out with spices that we vary from year to year.

Wasnít a huge fan of this one though it came out of a single batch cask and may have just been an off batch. The maltiness of this one seemed to beer overpowered by the whisky aroma. Reminded me of a watered-down boiler-maker. I will most likely try this one again and re-rate it.

Dark red, small tan head. Peppery, earthy, cinammon aroma. Lots of flavors. Plum, spruce, rosemary, and thyme. I have no idea how to describe this beer but its spicey and pleasant, the dominant flavor is cinnamon.

A little lite for my taste in the look, palate and body but has a nice nose and good depth of flavor. This one is better a little cool, and really great for a lighter winter brew. Try it!

UPDATED: NOV 28, 2005 Slightly thin, solid brown malt. Very complex, but very subtle spice profile. Hops are very background -- not particuarly present. Drier than expected for a winter seasonal. Coriander, cinnamon, marshmallow, chocolate, vanilla, etc.

Iím sitting on several bombers from the winter of 2008-2009, and I thought Iíd open one tonight to see how itís coping with the ravages of time. The head is still quite substantial and, although it dissipates quickly, it leaves lacing on your glass. Unfortunately, the carbonation itself is rather coarse. The liquid is rosewood-colored with an aroma of rich, peaty malt. Something that tastes like white chocolate and a hint of caramel moderate the maltiness to make this suitable for a warmer evening like tonight.

Hood hops..Nice chocolate int the middle...This is a really nice beer and I wish more people got to try it

Pours a dark, slightly hazy mahogany color with a creamy light tan head. One the nose, vanilla, citrus, bready malt notes, a sweet berry note and a touch of spice. Nice, but mellow, citrusy hop bite on the taste, very strong toasty malt character, creamy vanilla, and a hint of cinnamon. Really reminds me of winter solstice, but with a nicer citrusy bite to it.

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.

Poured from bottle to Engligh pint glass. Smooth aroma of lightly roasted pecans and vanilla. Smooth dark color with a lasting cream head. Feels like liquid silk in the mouth. Did I mention it was smooth? Finished slightly sweet with vanilla hints. Wow, no wonder itís so hard to get this stuff before itís sold out!
