Bottles, tap, brewery. I have a ton of this each winter. Dark, dark red pour. Cinnamon and malt aroma. Tastes of caramel, malts, a little sweetness, and a hint of alcohol. Thick feel with a lasting aftertaste.

4.7 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 19/20
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.

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.

Pours dark brown with a small tan head with allows for a very savory aroma. Best drunk from a glass with a large mouth for better enjoyment of this aleís sweet, malty fragrance. It tastes great and will be my go to winter seasonal in the future.

Great beer. The only thing I wish for this beer is that it had more aromatic malt. It is perfect for a cold night. Great beer overall.

Long Neck--> pint glass. Dark brown, large head. Aroma of rum raisin and molasses with notes of vanilla and pecan, very complex and hard to pin down. Hoppy taste, aftertaste brings back most of the aroma plus subtle spices and notes of espresso at the finish. Alcohol well concealed. Too much hops for the interesting mix of flavors but I don't notice it so much after a couple sips. It's a very decent ale and very tasty.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
Beer pours an attractive mahogeny color with a dark beige colored head that is mostly diminishing. Aroma is nice and rich with significant malt notes, mostly along the smokey and chocolate also a bit of spices. Flavor is nice and full with roasted nuts, chocolate and a very subtle but well done hoppy/spicey finish. No hint of the 8% ABV. Palate is full and rounded, no thin beer here. I agree with everyone else, Rahrís best to date. My only suggestion is that this might be best classed as an Old Ale? What do yaíll think?

Bottle. Chestnut brown body with a half inch foamy head. Nose-dusty and vegetal. Taste-almond, roasty malts, medium bitter, a staleness that is very nice tasting, light cola, apple, unsweet orange, slight lactic without the usual associated sourness, medium fruity esters. A world class beer that is delicious.

This beer pours a very deep amber/ almost black with a medium tan head. The aromas are bourbon, chocolate and a touch of cinnamon. The mouthfeel is sweet and watery. This was a great beer! Canít wait to have another! Cheers!
