COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Bold and rich, with a touch of holiday spice. The first thing one notices about a Samuel Adams® Winter Lager is the deep ruby color. Then comes the magical aroma which promises something special on the tongue. The cinnamon, ginger, and hint of citrus from the orange peel blend with the roasty sweetness of the malts to deliver a warming, spicy flavor. On the palate Samuel Adams Winter Lager is rich and full bodied, robust and warming, a wonderful way to enjoy the cold evenings that come with the season.

12oz bottle BB May dark brown beer, slight head, bubbly...clovey, malty aroma, lots of malt, butterscotch. Somewhat spicy malty beer, nice body(I expected this to be lighter)...finishes with a wheaty yeast flavor and a bit or carbonic acid...this one surprised me, I can actually drink it!

SwedeDog (364) - Windsor, Connecticut, USA - DEC 1, 2004
Pours clear and dark red. Good head with lots of tiny bubbles. Aroma is malty, sweet, yeasty and a hint of caramel. Sweet flavor and a bit metallic. Good spiciness with it. Finishes dry and hoppy. As the temperature increases, so does the metallicness (Is that a word? It should be) I guess it’s aight

This is a weizenbock? I wouldn’t have guessed that. In any case, this was a pretty good beer. Slightly spicy aroma, and a deep flavor that I just couldn’t put a more accurate description to. I blame that on the dact that it was served a little too cold, but it could just be that I’m out of practice. In any case, an enjoyable beer.

jefcon (1604) - Arlington, Virginia, USA - NOV 27, 2004
Dark amber in the glass and a tiny bit of lacing. Aromas are light toast, kind of herbal, and a little musky. This beer is lively on the palate with a solid progression. The peak flavors jump out in the middle, with an essence of fruit and hops. Grains and malt dominate before and after. Otherwise, this beer is smooth, shows you what it’s made of, and is suprisingly rich.

Pours dark amber with decent head that lasts a couple of minutes. Sweet roasted malt aroma. Very well balanced smooth body. Decent lacing. Decent hop bite in the finish. Very drinkable overall.

Enniskillen (2045) - Salinas, California, USA - NOV 27, 2004
Toffee, Caramel, malt aroma. Body is brown with a thin light tan head. Damn sweet, sweet tea and caramel, Taste very similar to newcastle at the beginning, then fades to a more toffee taste at the end.

sayravai (4706) - Helsinki, FINLAND - NOV 26, 2004
UPDATED: NOV 2, 2005 (Bottled, 5.6%) Clear amber/ruby color with a smallish, firm head. Sweetish, malty aroma with a slight toffee-scotch ale feel and a hint of spices, smoke, milk chocolate and aromatic hops. Quite toffee-malty, sweetish flavor with a bitter, dryish finish, some vanilla and other spices. Medium-bodied, smooth-carbonated, slightly sticky palate. A nice, reasonably full-bodied and balanced brew with just enough (but not too much) spiciness to suit the wintertime.

SledgeJr (3577) - Omaha, Nebraska, USA - NOV 24, 2004
On tap at the Crescent Moon Alehouse. Way darker than I had expected. At first, I had the impression that this was a jazzed-up version of regular Sam. However, as the beer warmed, I could detect spice-like flavors and more roasted caramel malt body. Very drinkable and pleasant, if nothing else.
