Wintertime Fun Ale is a deep brown English Strong Ale. It is brewed with milk chocolate, marshmallow, cinnamon and peppermint. Attractive aromas of each specialty ingredient are abundant on the nose, complemented by big malty sweet fragrances. Full flavors of chocolate and marshmallow coat the palate, accentuating the overall sweetness of this beer. However, it’s the lingering spiciness from the peppermint that grabs the drinker’s attention and leaves the last impression.

tap at 2012 michigan winter beer festival. i love the crazy ideas that joe short’s come up with. this one is a little bit of a mess flavorwise. luckily, i was also a bit of a mess by this point, so i was still able to enjoy it.

On draft at EBF. If I’m not mistaken Short’s probably had more beer on tap then any other brewery at EBF. Many of their beers were pretty solid. This one seemed exciting but was just sort of middle of the road. All the flavors (chocolate,peppermint,cinnamon,marshmallow) were just sort of unbalanced and not in your face. Wanted more from this beer.
