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.

12oz bottle in a snifter. Pours brown with a beige head. Aroma of caramel and lightly roasted malts plus a weird hop note and some off notes. Flavor the same, weird. Average texture. No thank you.

This is Dark! And if you consume a lot very quickly (chugging) you will lose a chromosome ! Bitter finish .. Not worth finishing !! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bottle to snifter (shared with the Mrs.). Looks decent; a cloudy brown with AMPLE off-white head and lively carbonation. Smells of dark fruit, yeast, and caramel. Tastes like it smells with an average mouthfeel. Forgettable.

onceblind (5206) - Denver, Colorado, USA - MAY 2, 2013
Dark murky nutty brown with a gigantic light cream head, even when poured gently. Smells like roasted caramel and earthiness along with a bitter grassy and leathery hop note. Flavor is kinda nutty and earthy with some boozy toasted caramel malt, light notes of chocolate, some leather, a little herbal and earthy hop flavor and semi-strong hop bitterness. Like a calm BIPA with less roast and less American hops.

Surprisingly good! Pours dark with a medium head. Typical British Xmas ale aromas of fruitcake and port and cinnamon. Great palate with super crisp finish. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Elwood (3336) - Leesburg, Virginia, USA - MAR 10, 2013
Serving: 12 oz. bottle from Wegmans Leesburg. It pours a very dark red color with a thick head of tan foam. The nose smells of spiced bread, brown sugar, cherries, and apples. The flavor leans towards the sweet and spiced side, like you would expect from a holiday ale. The sweetness is balanced with abundant carbonation and light earthy bitterness. A little pine and vanilla come out as it warms. Nice brew.
