COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
As the days grow shorter and frost becomes snow, our BELGIAN fREEZE WINTER ALE is the perfect remedy to loosen the spirits. This deep amber tonic is brewed with lots of roasted caramel malt for body and warmth to bring in the holidays and see you through the spring.

HighGravity (926) - Baltimore, Maryland, USA - OCT 20, 2004
This Belgian brew is a light to dark chestnut that has a hint of red highlights. The nose is mostly yeasty, but there is a touch of spicy hops in the background. The palate is medium in body with a drying character that was unexpected for a winter brew. The finish is fairly quick and dry. Overall, this beer is not that bad or that good.

On tap at the Porterhouse Brewery. Poured a dark reddish brown color with an averaged sized off white head. Aromas and tastes of sweet malts, molasses, and hops. Some spices. Lightly sweet with a light hoppy finish.

Cornfield (5570) - Oak Forest, Illinois, USA - SEP 13, 2004
UPDATED: SEP 29, 2005 A nice reddish-brown color with a whispy head, the aroma was promising me more than the over-all brew delivered. Spiced scent, but a mild flavor. I like much more bite to a winter drink.

crazyvin (2026) - New York, USA - AUG 28, 2004
Poured a deep brownish red color with a thin light tan head. Aroma was sweet chocolate and maple malts with some hops. The initial taste was sweet, but finished with a spicy hoppy bite. Overall a good winter time beer, flavors were somewhat subtle. It could have been heartier.

Aroma is overly sweet with a slight raisen note. Brew is dark brown but not at all cloudy. Taste is malty with a hint of spice. Nothing out of the ordinary.

FROTHINGSLOSH (6372) - GREENSBURG, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 25, 2004
UPDATED: AUG 25, 2011 This beer came to me in a beer club. I like the name, but then again I am partial to Belgian style beers. +++ It was sampled from a 12 oz brown bottle and poured a very dark brown color. Holding it to the light only the faintest of ruby color shone through. There was no head at all. The aroma was sweet, fruity and had an almost brown sugar element to it. Hints of coffee and molasses drifted to the nose as well. The flavor was strong with dark malt, coffee and brown sugar. This winter ale really ended up tasting more like a mild coffee porter more than anything else. Yet it did have the sweetness of a Belgian ale. Quite interesting.

Pours mahogany with a minimal off-white head. Taste is slightly sweet that finishes with some spice that you would expect from a winter ale. Overall a nice beer.

Had many times at the brewery itself. Pleasing enough and I enjoy it though I wouldn’t associate with a Belgian style and not even close to a Trappist tyle ale. Slightly sweet, a little thin and not overly heavy, complex or spiced. Don’t get hung up on the name - enjoy the beverage.

DCopperfields (146) - New York, USA - MAY 13, 2004
A very crimson amber sporting fluffy head of off-white foam. Aroma isn’t powerful, just a light, caramel-like malt nose. Medium bodied and a touch acidic. Dominant influence is the malt, but a good deal of hops do ride in. Finishes a bit sweet, with a touch of alcohol along for the trip. Decent.
