COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This unique seasonal beer offers the warmth of an old English pub to help ward off the chill of a winter’s night. It has its origins in British neighborhood pubs where villagers would gather to shake off the damp cold of the bitter English winter. They’d share a pint or two of winter warmer ale by the fire, catch up on local gossip, and stay inside, where it was warm. We’ve brewed our version in the tradition of those winter ales, with a robust, full-bodied flavor and a tangy hint of spices.

Bottle at home. Pours a brownish amber with one finger of off white head. Aroma is malty and caramel. Flavor follows. Very very slight note of any spices, if at all. Nice beer overall.

Like a baby English Bwine. Great. Enjoyable. Un toasty. Un roasty. Just a malt bomb with nice dark fruit flavors. Good. Enjoy ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

nellycale (206) - Caledonia, Minnesota, USA - JAN 12, 2015
From bottle. Pours a dark brown hue with a beige head. Decent lacing that slowly secedes. Aromas of dull spice, caramel, nutty and light dark chocolate and a hint of root beer, and cherry. Taste of chestnut, toasty malt, light smokey , moderately sweet, toffee, coffee, licorice and cola. Mouthfeel is light to medium with light to medium carbonation. Finishes fairly dry with a light hop spice. Well balanced. Malty, nutty up front with some hop spice on the finish. First time I had this, hated it. 2nd time around it 'a actually a very enjoyable winter beer. Temp outside -10 degrees = perfect beer to be drinking ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

On tap. Pours a clear deep amber with a light brown head that dissipates slowly to the edges and laces. Aroma has lots of bread with a bit of sweetness and light spice. Flavor has bread, toffee and sweet grains with a bit of spice underlying.

MNAle (46) - Minnesota, USA - JAN 2, 2015
Dark brown, 1/2 inch tan head with a "drippy" lacing. Moderate to light carbonation. Pleasant malt-fruit-tinged aroma. Thickish body and mouth feel. Take a drink and the hops bitterness hits first, followed by lightly roasted malt flavor. Then more bitterness comes through, but not overly so. This remains a nicely balanced ale front to back. Aftertaste is a mild lingering bitterness fading on the tongue.

Bottle. Pours clear rich chestnut, medium creamy tan head, dissipates slowly, good lacing. Aroma is malty and nutty, dark breads and a bit of smoke. Flavor is similar, medium sweet, light bitter, a bit smoky, nutty, pumpernickel, molasses, touch of orange zest. Medium body, low acidity and a bit creamy in the mouth. Solid beer.
