A spiced Winter Warmer Ale with 20% Organic Apple Cider added during fermentation.

Our Winter Warmer is brewed with a proprietary blend of 6 different spices, caramel and chocolate malts and lots of Organic Apple Cider (20% of total volume). The beer pours deep amber in color with mulling spices and dried apples in the nose. From the first sip, the apples show themselves proudly with their pleasant acidity and then pave the way for layers of rum cake, calvados, dark brown sugar and spiced apple cider. We hope this offering warms you all the way to the core!

"Interesting blend of cider and spiced winter warmer. Though the apple is subdued, it lends a sweet, tart complexity to the aggressively spiced ale. Good winter seasonal, hides most of its 9%."

Taster at Noble. Pours a cloudy amber with small tan head. Aroma is loads of Christmas spices, all spice, cinnamon and apples. Taste is apple forward followed by all sorts of spices. Caramel at the finish and some darker malt notes such as slight chocolate. Overall, a very nice twist on a winter warmer and one that is very Christmasy.

An excellent change of pace winter warmer. Pours a light color. Great pie spice aroma greets the nose. The spiciness is the first flavor note followed by the cider next. A little alcohol hear is there to tie or all together.

Cloudy amber pour with a white head. Nose is like a mulled cider mixed with gingerbread. Lots of nutmeg, mild cinnamon, all spice, and apple juice. There’s a good sweetness of malt to it, too, though. Sweet sugar and apple juice on the palate with a ton of spices and gingerbread. Great all spice and cinnamon notes, plenty of nutmeg, and a hint of alcohol on the finish.

Bottle shared by a kind person. This was a nice unique holiday brew with notes pf caramel, allspice, clove, and apple cider for sure. Didnt seem like a 9%. Good panty peeler.

$9.99 for an undated bomber at Olive Tree Market in OB earlier today. Slightly hazy auburn with a nice creamy one finger beige head, good retention. Sprucy nose just slightly ahead of a spicy blend of nutmeg, clove, cinnamon, allspice--you get the point. Apples and toasted malt in the back. Flavor has stronger apple notes, as well as the addition of some alcohol--no surprise since it’s 9.1%--and a bit of caramel sweetness. Moderately spicy, the finish is dry with some warming alcohol, bitterness peaked at a 2-3ish. Low creamy carbonation with a medium full body. Definitely a solid beer, but I’m kind of sick of $10 bombers.

This poured a cloudy darker orange color with a beige head. Aroma was of light spices, some toffee, and apples. Flavor was prodiminantly spices, but nothing too strong, nice caramel and toffee malt backbone and some apple spice too. Decent.

Tried this on tap at public house in the venetian hotel and casino in Las Vegas. Great holiday spiced ale, nice nose and subtle holiday spice notes; well balanced. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
