COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Warm up the long, cold nights of winter with Rahrís latest seasonal offering. Wonderfully robust, rich and full-bodied, Rahrís Winter Warmer is crated in the fine British tradition of holiday ales. Perfect for either holiday gatherings or quiet evenings at home.

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.

Super dark brown, almost black with almost no head. Aroma of fruit and dark roast coffee. Flavor is similar, with a little alcohol and some coffe-like bitterness. Pretty good. On deck...the bourbon barrel aged variety.

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.

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!

Great winter ale, with coffee and chocolate notes, followed up with slightly burnt bitterness in the finish.

Dahrk ruby color with no real head to speak of. Malty aroma without much else. Thick yet watery consistency. Taste of nuts and hints of choc. & spicy hops. A finish that tries really hard to be bitter enough. Ugly pug is better. C-

Bottle. Pours deep, dark amber with nice off white head. Lacing is pretty good. Nice spicey aromas, hint of sweetness and lots of roast, chocolate, and whiskey notes. Best brew Iíve had from Rahr.
