Bottle, thanks Jeff! Pours a very dark brown with short lasting white head. Fairly intense aroma of cinnamon apple pie, buttery pie crust, and other spices. Medium body with a boat load of cinnamon in the mid-palate. Finishes with a buttery pie crust taste. Finishes with some bitterness.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
12 oz. Lightly hazy copper with a small ring of bubbles. Nose is cherry, raisin bread and cinnamon graham crackers. Tastes of cherry, cinnamon, gingerbread with a touch of dry cocoa, and light finishing notes of white pepper and woody hops. Cinnamon gets to be a bit much near the bottom of the glass, but not nearly so much as some other spiced brews. Medium body is to the sweet side but the spice provides a dry-enough finish. Medium-high carbonation flares up a little too much but helps to keep things from getting too sticky. Nice little dessert/winter warmer sipper.

2/01/2014: Rivertown Winter Ale... Pretty appearance, but over-spiced and sicklingly sweet; the cinnamon and sweetness completely override the nice molsses and anything else that might be waiting to be discovered. Draught sample at Rhoerer’s Tavern in North Bend, Ohio. Rating #49 for this beer.

Pour dark brown with an off white head. Aroma of cinnamon, ginger, molasses. Taste is sweet, brown sugar, ginger, molasses, cinnamon, tastes like a gingerbread cookie. Nice to try but it’s too sweet to drink a lot of

bottle - Pours dark amber with a small, rapidly fading head. It has a spicy aroma and a sweet, malty flavor with cinnamon. It’s medium bodied and overall an okay but unremarkable brew.

Brown, no head. Smells like apple, cinnamon, and some other vaguely "winter" spices. Taste is, I don’t know, Wassail? Maybe? Lots of heavy, fruity and spicy flavors.

Pours a dark brown with a fleeting white head. Taste is very cinnamon forward with a bit of hop bitters. Worth a try.

12oz bottle. Attractive ruby-amber body. Thin, eventually oily off-white head. Big spiced aroma. A pretty spot on cinnamon forward winter beer. big and sugary, but also has some really rich malt tones. A solid, hefty Winter Ale. Classic, clean stuff.

Great nose and weird spice flavors (cinnamon) mostly that bring you into an OK flavor and ok palate for the ABV. Overall a cool winter beer!
