Good dark ale on a cold day. Not an everyday drink. Tasted better once the ale set and warmed up a little. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bottle. Pours a clear amber with a small frothy beige head leaving sticky lacing along the glass. The aroma is a bready malt with caramel and roast. Thin mouthfeel with a rich malt and chocolate with a bready finish. Easy to drink hiding the alcohol well. A good English strong ale from Rahr.

Decent for Rahr, but not worth trading for. Smooth sweetish taste, that comes close to a strong dark. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Pours dark brown with hints of red at the edges of the glass and a small yellowish tan head. Smells of rich malt, hints of caramel and chocolate, and a touch of woody hops. Taste is sweet with a nice balance of chocolate and caramel, no real bitterness present. Full-bodied with a smooth texture and very soft mouth-carbonation, Rahr and Sons Mild Winter Winter Warmer finishes with a lingering soft bitterness.

12oz bottle pours cola brown with a very thin tan head. Aroma is dark and sweet, roasted malt and raisins. Taste adds a bit of spice and wood.

beerbill (3573) - Laurel, New York, USA - FEB 18, 2012
22 oz. bottle courtesy of a trade with crajun. Pours dark brown with a thin-moderate tan head that lasted through the first quarter of the glass and left partial lace. Pleasant aroma of lightly roasted malt, caramel, and some bourbon vapors. The flavor is a bit sweet with malt, caramel, a bit of vanilla, and some mild roast. Mild bitterness at the finish. Fairly well-rounded. Enjoyable.

rougeau13 (2209) - Richmond, Texas, USA - FEB 2, 2012
Really dark brown with a small light brown head. Aroma of chocolate, roast, caramel, coffee and light spice. The taste is akin to a thin imperial stout. Rich chocolate, wood, roast and coffee dominate. Then there’s a mild bitterness in the finish. Medium-full bodied with low carbonation and a mild alcohol presence. Nice.
