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.

Daaark brown, with 3 finger frothy off white head. Get big hops up front, sweetness in the middle, then the hop bite at the end. This is on the very verge of being too bitter for me. would prefer the sweetness be a little more than it is. actually pretty suprised by how bittern this one is, considering how dark the beer was, just visually it looked like a bigger beer. For me, this is not even close to being to being near the top for its style.

Excellent dark red amber when poured, nice frothy white head. Strong hints of fruit with a little bit of coffee taste near the end. Alcohol is quite apparent during the aftertaste. Aroma is that of fruit giving way to coffee. Not bad overall, but not quite what I had expected. A little disappointed with this one. Expected more.

Dark brown, bitter to the core and delicious. This one hits hard on the bitter side and ends with a alcohol aftertaste. Tastes very good!

12 ounce bottle. Pour leaves a dark brown ale with a half-inch tan head. The aroma is rich caramel, slight chocolate, mild spices. Pseudo-chocolate flavor on initial draught is almost instaneously replaced with a slightly bitter "wet wood bark" flavor. The "wet wood bark" is not as overpowering as Snow Plow, but is not altogether pleasant, either. Slight disconnect between the aroma and the flavor. If the flavor were just slightly adjusted this might be somewhat good. The flavor did increase slightly over the course of my meal, so perhaps this was a bad bottle...

Nice holiday beer. Fruity and malty with a nice balance. Spices are noticeable.

I like this winter brew. I would rate it just ahead of the middle of the pack but not the pick of the litter for 2007. Deep rich color...fluffy head...good balance of spices to warm you on a cool evening.

A true winter warmer, dark amber color from raosted malts also lend to the rich malty flavor, fruit/floral hop flavor and enough kick to keep you warm on the coldest day on the slopes!

2004 vintage. Nice beer, Big english hop flavor balanced (although not perfectly) with some roasted malts. Nice to drink, but not a real thinker beer.

Bottle. Pours dark brown with something resembling a small head - it disappeared so quickly I’m not sure it was even there. Smells of malts and prunes with some other sweet fruitiness. Tastes about the same with some sourness and astringency towards the end. Medium-heavy body. Not bad, nothing special.
