Poured deep brown/red with no head.Carbonation??? where was it. Aromas of malt and burbon. Thin body with flavors of malt and a little bit of hops. Not feelin this beer at all. The only good quality about this one is how it hides the 8%ABV!

This beer has all the same great quality of the end of winter warmer minus the bourbon. Vanilla, chocolate, raisin, and super smooth. Love it.

aroma was weak and faintly sweet. looks highly carbonated/bubbly with little head. flavor is good, grapefruit hop bitterness with roasted malt finish. fair enough deal.

This one reminds me alot of the Trader Joeís Winter beer. Light in color, body and mouthfeel with not a whole lot going on. Wouldíve liked to have seen alot more body and spice character. With the previous in mind, this still does exhibit some decent malt character with notes of caramel, dates and candied fruit.

Pours a dark ruby color with a very small tan head. Aroma is malty with some caramel. Flavor is rich of roasted chocolate and caramel, with a hint of the 8% alcohol. One of my favorite Rahr brews, as good, if not better than the Oktoberfest. 12 oz. bottle.

On tap at the Alamo Drafthouse Lakecreek and poured into a Trappist-style glass, this seemed somewhat misnamed as a winter warmer. It has little in common with the flat, fruitcake-ish tastes that you get from, say, Sammy Smithís annual offering of the same name. Instead, it reeks of heavy roast aromas and flavors: molasses, dark chocolate, hints of espresso. All of these met just enough hops to avoid cloying your throat, making this a nice sipper hat evoked a chocolate stout.

UPDATED: DEC 18, 2006 Pour is deep copper/caramel color with a rocky off-white head that doesnít last long. Nose is slightly roasty with a bit of dried fruit smell. A small amount of spices can be detected. Palate is smooth and medium bodied. Taste is caramelized malt with just a touch of alcohol in the finish.

poured a dark cola color with some ruby in the light. this beer poured zero head so im really wondering if i had purchased an old bottle. the aroma was sweet, you pick up caramel, coffee, brown sugar. the taste is not as sweet as aroma but you definitely pick up the coffee and sugary malt taste. i was a little worried to try this after having no head with an aggressive pour but this beer was good, give it a shot.

I had no idea what to expect from this brew, but I was pleasantly surprised! It pours dark brown with a little red throw in for good measure. The aroma is sweet, somewhat candy-like but clean and malty. Not a lot of head in the glass, mostly just a ton of carbonated fizz. The taste is sweet, a little bitter, with hints of ripe apple. The finish is nice, clean, and spicy! I canít complain about this one at all, itís very good! I like this MUCH better than most of the so-called winter ales Iíve tried, and Iím only sorry I bought just one bottle!!

12 oz bottle compliments of TJ. Poured the color of cola with sweet malty nose. Sticky sweet malt backbone, caramel and raisins. Slight bitterness at the finish, practically disappeared as it warmed up. Delicious ww!
