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

I’d like an ABV check on this one...it is virtually invisible, leading me to think it might be incorrectly derived. Very light- bodied brew with an emphasis on the malts and less so on the "holiday" spicing...thank goodness. Pretty refreshing malt bomb with some nuttiness in the finish. But virtually NO warming effect, making me think this might be more in the 4-5% range....but I like it! Thanks Corny!

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.

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.

The pour was brown with red highlights. Off-white head collapses quickly. Thin bits of lacing. The aroma is malty with light spice of cinnamon and clove. The flavor is light caramel, thin spice and malt. Mouthfeel is on the thin side and the carbonation is aggressive.

Grabbed this on draft. You can tell it’s the same beer as Whiskey (End of Winter) Warmer, but it’s better. The bourbon doesn’t take over the taste. There’s a roast and raisin taste to it and the finish is a bit sweet. Definitely one of Rahr’s better beers.

Pours a hazy brown color with a light brown head. Aroma is honey, toast, caramel, brown sugar, fruit, roast, coffee, and a touch of floral hops. Flavor is honey, toast, chocolate, roast, some coffee, and a light brown sugar finish.

Thanks to drowland for the share at the So Long Sea Bass Tasting. Pours dark red-brown with an off-white head. Nose is dark chocolate, cocoa, slight fruit, nuts, and an interesting background sweetness. Flavor is similar to the aroma with a lot of porter quality to this one. Medium bodied and decent overall.

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.

A tan head fades quickly above a body I can only peg as "reddish-brown". I find a mixture of both pale and dark malts in the aroma (which I find intrguing) along with a lemony/floral hoppiness. Flavor finds a "candy bar of maltiness" which includes chocolate, caramel and nuts... along with some mild, sour/bitter hops. A little thin in the mouth with a dry finish. A sessionable brew for the ABV.
