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.

Deep reddish mahogany color. Very mild aroma of malt and spice. Fruity. Nice bitterness. Bigger flavor than the aroma implies. Quite tasty holiday ale. Malty. Some roast. Spicy. Cinnamon? A bit medicinal. Lingers long on the palate. Fairly nice.

Imbibed in November 2002. A mildly hoppy aroma. A dark ruby brown color with a quick brown head. Flavor start of hoppy, then the malts assert themselves, followed by the hops again with a bitter aftertaste. Lightly carbonated on the tongue but no visible bubbles. A dry finish.

deep brown/garnet color with lots of carbonation and a decent frothy beige head. aroma is very nutty and malty sweet. almost has a cereal grainy quality to it. bit of alcohol in the flavor and a rather intrusive grainy aftertaste...not bad though. more malt than i"d like..of course that is to be expected. i suspect there arent many on this site more one-sided than myself..oh well.

Bright red color, foamy tan head. Fresh candyish malt in the nose with a good touch of fruity hops. Big juicy hop presence in the body backed up by a good firm maltiness and a shot of alcohol. Finishes nicely balanced with a touch of hops and a good burst of malt. Very nice strong ale, one of the better winter ales I tried this year.

good strong beer. six of these plus a shot or two of bushmills and all is right for a while. good warm alchohol notes if not served too chilled.

Nice dark color with a fairly nice creamy head. Too much orange and malt for me.

Dark orange-copper color, huge foamy off white head, leaves a nice lace in the glass, malty caremel aroma, medium bodied, watery mouthfeel. It does finish dry and crisp, not bad, drinkable.

Aroma is mostly malty, with some dark breadiness and toffee, along with a bit of hop spice and a tiny dash of alcohol. Dark red in color with slight head and lacing. Flavor has some depth, with a blend of lightly toasted, caramelized malt, light fruitiness, a profound and lingering spiciness, and earthy, piney, spicy hop flavors. Finishes malty, nutty and lightly bitter and then dries out leaving the very holiday-oriented spiciness. Body and mouthfeel are medium and the palate is not over carbonated. Actually a pretty decent beer, some subtlety.
