Winter Warmer. A rich, full-bodied winter warmer crafted in the British tradition of holiday beers. This deep mahogany colored brew balances complex fruit flavors with a refreshingly smooth texture.

I liked it a lot. Malty and chocolate were the things that stood out to me. Very solid seasonal beer.

Had off tap at the brewery. Aroma of sweaty socks. Copper to dark brown. Candied brown sugar middle and finishes sweet and slightly dry. Not a huge alc presence, very much like a brown ale.

12 oz bottle. Pours brown with tall, long lasting, fluffy off-white head. Aroma is of herbal, piney hops, spices, dark fruit, brown sugar, coffee and caramel malt. Body is full and tangy. Taste is similar to aroma. Finish is long and dry. It was a perfect brew to drink after shoveling snow.

From bottle. Pours a dark red with a touch of beige head. Quite a bit of carbonation. Muted nose with bits of roasted malts. Some bright piney hoppiness up front, giving way to a chocolate finish. Good kick. Solid winter seasonal.

UPDATED: DEC 7, 2014 My January 2014 review: Pours a read brown with a pretty white head that dissipates into film. Aroma is simple and unappealing: caramel, grass, and dough. Palate is worse... heartburn city. Did not enjoy. Won’t buy again. Will not drink again. My December 2014 review: What a difference a year makes. Rated a 2.5 last time I tried it. THIS beer pours a deep amber/brown with a nice off white head. Aroma: caramel, cereal, floral, dough, and a little bit of cooked vegetables. Taste is slightly off balance towards sweet. Palate is nice with some sticky. Quite an improvement.

Deep dark chocolate malt on the palate with hints of coffee. Very warming with alcohol only mild bitterness kind of sweet and bitter at the same time like dark chocolate. A little bit of toffee notes as well.

From bottle to glass. Massively over-carbonated on the pour! Caramel, dark fruit and wet cardboard aromas. Clear chestnut with massive taupe head. Poured like a gusher and took minutes to settle down. Deep fruit and malty sweet flavors with some slight oxidation. Some complexity in the flavor profile but it was hard to get passed the pour. As it warmed, it really took on an infected taste and i kept reducing the score throughout the pour.
