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.

Dorwart (2498) - Robbinsville, New Jersey, USA - FEB 1, 2004
Thin head which did not last long. Minimal carbonation but decent lacing. Aroma is mostly malt with some spices thrown in for good measure. Color is a great ruby/amber. Flavor is quite good and well balanced. Good malt backbone with some hops and a little yeast thrown in. Liquid is like velvet in the mouth. Very smooth and creamy and very easy drinking. Finish is slightly bitter with a noticable hops presence. A very good beer from Sam Adams.

Hey not all that bad. Darker in colour with a thin white to tanish head. The nose is malty and simple. Same goes for the taste. Easily drinkable but finishes quite salty.

Good head and spicy nose. Dark amber color good complex flavor. One of the best Sam Adams beers, leaves you wanting more, but with almost seven percent alcohol, be careful.

To begin with the beer had a great aroma that hinted at the complexity of flavors that was to come. However, at times the beer seemed too complex, with so many different spices and flavors that it was often hard to process.

Nothing amazing. It looks nice and has some noticable spices. Flavor was smooth and balanced and the mouth feel was probably the best part of the beer. It left a creamy feeling in the mouth. Good beer, but definately not the best winter seasonal I've had recently.

A complex aroma of spices, including hints of cinnamon. Beautiful copper/amber appearance with a moderate head and lacing. It has a very full set of flavors, spicy and warming. Very good.

This is one of the better winter beers I've had. Aromas of fruits and nuts; flavorwise, spices are very apparent, but balance out nicely to leave a nice not-too-bitter and crisp finish

This beer totally blew me away! I have drank Sam Adams for many years and don't usually like it when they try changing things up, but this was sensational! An excellent tasting beer that goes down very smooth with a very enriching quality.

Nice foamy tan head on a clear amber reddish body. Nose is weak, I only sense a litte malt. Is is quite flavorfull with notes of roasted malt, nutmeg, pepper and caramel with a nice alcohol bite to the finish. Smooth.
