Pours out a hazy brown with some amber topped with a white head. A great malty aroma and a light spice on this one. Tast of hops and more of the thick malts. Not a bad winter brew.

argo0 (11442) - Washington DC, USA - APR 5, 2013
Small off-white head atop clear dark amber body. Aroma is moderately sweet, grapefruit, caramel, some pine, light cherry. Taste is moderately sweet, grapefruit/pine, caramel, light cherry. Medium body, some resin, light acidity. Quite hoppy, which really isn’t a characteristic of a winter warmer. Tasty though.

Bomber. A sweet malty aroma, but not heavy. Deep copper color, clear, event head. Medium body, a little syrupy, but in line with style. Overall a god choice

ACHops (668) - Seattle, Washington, USA - FEB 7, 2014
22 oz bomber from Full Throttle Bottles. Pours bright clear reddish orange amber with medium thick cream colored head that laces well. Aroma is sweet oaky caramel malt with floral hops at the back. Taste is thickly coating sweet caramel malt with sharply bitter earthy hops. Bitterness fades quickly and finishes clean. More malt and hops than your standard winter warmer, though somehow lacking in balance. Still a quality beer, No-Li continues to impress.

Very dark and rich IPA - very hopped somewhat spicy. Malty without being sweet and bittered very well. A little fruity, but in a good way.

BrewDad (4890) - Olympia, Washington, USA - DEC 12, 2008
Taster – Washington Winter Beer Festival – Seattle, WA – Big malt aroma and flavor. This had some awesome spices and fruitiness was like that of dried fruit. Very hoppy also. But really this is not a IPA. It is a winter warmer.

Beaver (1282) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - JAN 15, 2013
22 oz bottle. Pours hazy dark reddish amber with a smallish creamy off-white head that goes to a thin film and leaves some lacing.

The aroma is figgy bready malts with some piney hops.

The flavor is sweet caramel malts, molasses, toffee and dark fruits with a decent piney hop finish. The mouthfeel is medium to full bodied with low carbonation.

Overall, a nice winter warmer. Good balance of sweet caramel, molasses and fruits with the piney hops.

Tmoney99 (10544) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - MAY 9, 2014
Bottle. Poured hazy dark copper color with an average frothy off-white head that mostly lasted with good lacing. Moderate spice hop & toasted malt aroma. Medium body with a smooth texture and soft carbonation. Medium bittersweet flavor with a medium bittersweet finish of moderate duration. My expectations were met.

Bradrcr (806) - Renton, Washington, USA - JUL 22, 2007
On draught at the brewery. Aroma is some extremely sweet caramel forward followed by light hop citrus and grassy notes. Appearance is a medium amber, with a good off-white head. Flavor is sweet caramel forward with light hop citrus, some earthiness and an odd, but very smooth resiny finish. Mouthfeel is medium bodied, resiny, with starch in the afteraste. Overall, complex, very interesting, with some great aged notes.

Deep red pour with an off white head. Faint malt aroma but not much, but the tasty malt is definitely present upon the first taste. Also a subtle hop presence upon initial drinks but quickly overpowered. Finish is strangely tangy, bordering on sour but tasty.
