SPDickerman (1107) - Texas, USA - MAR 22, 2012
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.

kenb (1102) - Oregon, USA - JAN 2, 2008
UPDATED: JAN 5, 2008 12 oz bottle via BA-SS-07 (thanks!). This pours a deep dark brown.Nose is all about the herbal and earthy notes. Taste is all caramel and malts with some earthy pine. Body is medium. carbonation is moderate. Not bad but could stand to have more body and more flavoe.

boboski (1095) - Alabama, USA - MAR 24, 2007
Medium brown pour with chestnut hues. Thin notions of a white head recede quickly, leaving an oily carbonated film behind. Mostly clear with ruby and yellowish highlighting. Aroma is comprised of lightly toasted caramel malt up front. No hint at high alcohol, well masked to say the least. Sugary, interesting. Light spicing, mostly coriander and nutmeg. A little soapy as well. Flavor is sweet and nutty caramel malts, grainy and toasty. Slight tartness, nice bitterness levels throughout. Slightly syrupy palate, too fizzy at points, but an otherwise reasonable carbonation level. Still not a trace of alcohol. An agressive fullness is left behind in a sugar finish. Pretty good balance here, other than in the palate.

MaltOMeal (1092) - Land of Sugar, Texas, USA - DEC 8, 2010
On tap at Petrol Station. Pours dark brown to black with an offf-white head. Nose is spices - allspice and nutmeg. Taste is coffee, spices and roast malt. Mouthfeel is medium, slightly chalky and dry. While good in small quantities, it was hard to finish a whole pint.

RollinHard (1024) - Fort Worth, Texas, USA - DEC 6, 2006
Pours a dark garnet red, with a decent sized, but quickly dissipating head. Aroma is subtle, but thereís quite a lot going on: caramel, toffee, some biscuit/butterscotch, light milk chocolate, even some mild plum. taste is mildly chocolate, leading to a tangy raisin taste, and again something buttery. Gentle roasted nuts in the finish (innuendos aside). Not much of a hop presence. Mouthfeel was a bit thin, but it seems like it was done out of intention, rather than failing to make it thick. All the flavors were pretty mild and well blended. This beer was incredibly easy drinking and I was astonished to find out it was 8%. Very well hidden. This is probably the most session-friendly winter beer Iíve tasted that didnít half-ass the quality. Kudos to Rahr.

DenverLogan (996) - MileHi, Colorado, USA - MAR 18, 2015
From a 22 oz bottle. Pours dark brown with large head in a Lost Abbey chalice. Aroma of chocolate, vanilla, amber malts, light bourbon. Significant carbonation and mouthfeel. Flavors of rich malts, milk chocolate, oak, light bourbon. Rich, flavorful, relatively easy drinking and not too big in alcohol.

Tap at the source. Pours black. Small head. Aroma is caramel, fig, dark fruits. Flavor is fair fruit, fig, raisins, totally an English ale. Yea, I mean itís an English style winter warmer. You should know the flavor of this before trying it. Oh, itís fine
