COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Stir Crazy Winter Ale, a 6.5% abv winter warmer clocking in at 22 IBUs. Layers of malty goodness, a dark ruby colored winter warmer ale deliver satisfying notes of chocolate and rich caramel; while pulverized rasins and brown sugar provide a fruity complexity that warms you from within.

Tap. Pint. Dark amber. Smells of spice. Nice white head with little lacing. Some Christmas spices, great ending sweetness. Little bit of Ginger bitterness and spiciness. The balance is perfect, the best beer indeed does in my humble opinion.

Tap from Bulldog NE. Really appealing color and aroma give this one a great start. Slightly mild aroma but makes up for it in flavor. A sweet taste but keeps it under wraps with some high quality hops. Star struck a bit by the way it ends. Just a perfect way to finish a winter variety. Stir it up.

Dark pour with a tan head that faded quickly. Aroma is nutty and has hints of spice. Taste really shines, has a more complex arrangement that I wasn’t picking up in the aroma. Good winter brew

Tap at Pizza Luce. Deep red brown with medium sized mocha head. Vanilla, raisins, strong malts, and earthy hops. Initial vanilla sweetness and finishes in a light dry earthy bitterness. Body is medium-heavy with a syrupy feel.

TwoSipDip (8894) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - JAN 29, 2014
Can @ home, courtesy of my great friend Charlie. Pours a deep brown appearance with a lasting tan head. Aroma is full of cocoa powder, a bit of caramel, chalk, and some dark fruits. Fairly soft on the tongue. Well balanced that’s just slightly sweet with just a hint of alcohol on the back end. Definitely some raisin/plum notes in there. Really smooth and easy to drink.

From notes. Growler 2/1: pours a lovely dark brown color with a 1/2in head. Smells of chocolate milk and dark fruit, really lovely. Taste echoes the smell with some caramel notes, complexity without weight. Lovely! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Pours a nice dark amber color with off-white head. Brown sugar, vanilla, dark fruits and some cocoa on the nose; follows onto the palate. Finishes with just a little sweetness. Very good winter warmer.
