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.

Wonderful dark, spicy aroma and flavor, the prototypical NW Christmas ale. This is good stuff.

Very rich, nice balance, spicy aroma & aftertaste, tasted like a little cinnamon was thrown in, kind of nutty as well, good head, pretty decent seasonal

Black-cherry color with a medium khaki head with decent lacing. Aroma is wonderful: cinnamon and nutmeg is the most prevalent. Initial taste has a hop burst that mellows with burnt chocolate. Medium carbonation. Happy 15th Anniversary Pyramid!

Nothing special when it’s cold -- the aroma is metallic and the flavor is unbalanced (the sweet and bitter flavors don’t blend). When it warms up a few degrees, though, the aroma and the flavor become spicier, less bitter, and it blends nicely. It has a pleasant, fruity and spicy flavor fitting a winter seasonal. I enjoy this beer, but I do not recommend drinking it straight from the fridge.

With a really high alcohol content you have to watch yourself with this one because it surprisingly easy to drink. Nicely malty, this is a good wintertime beer to put some rosiness in your cheeks.

smooth and sweet malty winter brew that will please the palate. Pick it up if you can.

UPDATED: NOV 29, 2003 2003 bottle-deep ruby appearance-lots of carbonation with off white head. malty aroma-sweet and spicy. sharp, spicy palate that is astringent. somewhat harsh on the tongue. This beer would be excellent after a year of aging. Right now, its very unbalanced.

From the moment I opened the bottle I liked this one. It reminds me of malt, cookie dough, and even a bit pineapple-y in a way. I taste as much in here as I smell, and I love it. Nice warming from the alcohol too. Would rate even higher if not for the bitterness that appears from time to time. Overall, my favorite from Pyramid.

VENOM (941) - Connecticut, USA - FEB 25, 2002
Clear ruby/chestnut. Thin white edge head. Light carbonation. Cherry aroma, some caramel and earthy hops. Medium light body with a savory, earthy twang to the malt base. Watery. Fairly dry with a light juicy alcohol edge. Fairly basic with not much depth of flavor or substance to the body. Thickens slightly as it sits. Remains ’herby’ with a lightly roasted dry finish. Disappointing.
