This strong ale is as rich and complex as it is drinkable. A blend of six malts and four hops creates an ale with deep carmel character, spicy hop flavor and a dry roasty finish. Itís spelled differently because itís Vonderful.

On tap at Laughing Planet. Dark brown in color with a smooth tan head. Slightly nutty taste with some malt and roasted flavors. Not overly roasted...a solid winter beer.

Changed (448) - Ithaca, New York, USA - AUG 16, 2012
Aged 22oz with Movis. Canít rember appearance. Aroma and flavor is dark and rich: caramel, toffee, a little hops, and a yeasty malt finish. Alcohol presence is in your face, but only ~6 in actuality. A bug, tasty beer-- my favorite winter warmer to date.

bpreo (2187) - Eugene, Oregon, USA - FEB 6, 2012
Strong in terms of flavor, not alcohol content. It tastes like itís 80 proof, but itís only a gentle 6.4%.

CampesinoTino (799) - Seattle, Washington, USA - DEC 2, 2011
Bomber. Dark reddish brown colored with a thin layer of sudsy tan head. Lots of caramel, biscuits and figs in the aroma with a bit of currant and nutty malts at the end. Roasted caramel malt and spiced bread dominate the flavor along with some cocoa, prune and raisin notes in the background. Also some mild herbal hops bitterness in the finish. The body is relatively smooth with plenty of carbonation to round it out. Well-made Winter Warmer with a nice Pacific Northwest style hops bite to it.

BelgianBeerGal (3500) - Panama City, Florida, USA - APR 27, 2011
Traded bottle. Pours a darker chestnut color with a very thin, bubbly, khaki head and a little lacing. Relatively light flavor that trends towards fruity, almost perfumey at times. Flavor is hop bitterness but missing some of the malt balance. Agree that there is some spice from the hops where they seem a little green. Fine.

Gooney (389) - Portland, Oregon, USA - MAR 14, 2011
22 oz bottle from the brewery - Greats you with a nice, warm dark copper glow and a slightly off-white head. Hoppy aroma, but not too bitter on the flavor. This is a very good one. Makes me want to cozy up in front of a fire after a day of shredding the mountain.
