Bottle pours a deep brown with a thin off white head. Laces fairly well. Has a decent aroma of coffee, roast, and chocolate. The carbonation is okay. Has a good flavor sweet but not too much. Alcohol is well hidden. A good blending. The texture is thick. The body id medium. Has a good finish with a good aftertaste. Pretty good beer.

UPDATED: NOV 28, 2011 re-rate (original was 2009) either I changed or this beer changed; MUCH better than my original rate (below). malty aroma with a hint of cocoa. Pour is black with big beige head with long lacing. many levels of flavor - not much sweetness; beer starts smooth, some dark fruit flavors followed by chalky chocolate and beer ends dry. med-thick palate. I LIKE!! Dissapointed; my first winter warmer and it was... bland nice aroma of cloves? malts but there was none of that in the taste..

SPDickerman (880) - 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.

jujubeast6000 (854) - Houston, Texas, USA - NOV 1, 2009
Reviewed 7/23/2009 (bottle): Pours a dark reddish brown color body, with a foamy, average creamy off-white head. Malty aroma. Some roasted notes. Watery palate. Some roasted taste. Not bad tasting, a little malty sweet. A little hot.

Tejas (851) - Dallas, Texas, USA - DEC 9, 2009
Draught > Gingerman. Better than most Rahr beers but thatís not saying much. Seemed to lack flavor. Just tasted sorta bland and the palate was pretty thin too. Nevertheless, it certainly wasnít offensive. Had some sweet roasty flavors. Iíll try again just to make sure itís not better than Iím describing.

OKplus (787) - Oklahoma, USA - MAY 23, 2013
A - Pours cola brown with 1 finger of tan head. S - Milk chocolate, sugary malt, vanilla, roasted malts. Smokey aroma as it warms. T - Dark caramel, roasted malts, caramelized sugar, bitter dark chocolate, brown toast, nutty yeast, hints of grapes and under-ripened berries. Bittering hops adds earthiness to round off the finish. Citrus comes out on the aftertaste. M - Moderate carbonation, light side of medium, almost thin body. No alcohol to speak of. The carbonation drops off toward the end. Warming without the alcohol showing up. Nice cocoa and roasted malts with a solid strain of nutty yeast to glue everything together. The mouthfeel was the weak link but it wasnít a deal breaker. Everything tasted young and fresh. Iím gonna try and out one away for a year or so. Serving type: bottle 11-19-2011

kevinator (710) - The Colony, Texas, USA - JAN 17, 2014
Much better than I remember. Nice malty and caramel aroma. A bread crust brown color with a good foamy head. Weighty palate with decent carbonation. Full feeling. Bready malt flavors with burnt sugar and spices. Overall a good beer only to be bettered by the bourbon barrel version.

ttutony (607) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 20, 2009
Deep brown in the glass with a very thin white to tan head. Nice nutty, roasted aroma with maybe a hint of coffee in there too. Flavors on the palate are similar to the aroma. Very nice.

swanmann (568) - Norman, Oklahoma, USA - JAN 4, 2007
The bottle pours thick coffee color with ruby highlights and a light tan dissipating head. I get aromas of sweet chocolate and mild hops. Itís got a roasted flavor with a mild bitter finish. Could be a little thicker but itís good. Iíve rated 100! Woohoo!
