A beautiful dark and delicious winter warmer! A very fine balance in both sweetness and a dry finish and one that you can enjoy a few of before the alcohol sneaks in to lull you away for the evening. Pairs ups deliciously with my wild hog fajitas! Definitely a great brew to enjoy throughout the winter. Grab some of this brew and Rahrís Bourbon Barrel aged winter warmer as well when you find them!!

Bottle - pours dark brown and 3/4" tan head. Nice aroma of caramel and toasted malts. Has a medium body but slightly watery. Still, a pretty decent brew.

Good dark ale on a cold day. Not an everyday drink. Tasted better once the ale set and warmed up a little.

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!

Bottle at the brewery
Cloudy dark amber color. Nice aroma, with some malt, roasted malt, caramel, toffee. Good body structure, with a good mix of malt and caramel. Enough bitterness, but it would really need a more aromatic hopping. Anyway, the most interesting here.

Pours a dark brown with a nice tan head that had staying power. Very typical aroma for the style, but not exactly rich. i like the flavor, with a warm malty backbone. Roasted nut notes, with a spice cake thrown in. Needed more body, but other than that nicely done.

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.
