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.

12 oz bottle pours a brownish black with a small head. Good carmel malt doughy and toasted but citrusy aroma. Bready flavors are dominant, medium bodied, carmel and toffee contrasted with a citrussy hops and spices. Surpisingly tasty.

This ok but too biter for me. I found it a little hard to drink though I liked its coffee notes. Just too hoppy.

Pours very dark brown with inner ruby hints, contrasted nicely by stark white head. I love this color combo more than almost anything, for some reason. Smooth mouthfeel, somewhat light body. Toasty with only a hint of a wintery dark fruitiness and spices.

light brown with a tan head. not too much in the aroma. slightly roasty toast aroma. flavor is a bit weak. mostly sweet roasted malt. body seems a bit light and the finish is slightly watery. not a horrible beer but nothing great.

dkoonce (911) - People’s Republic of Athens, Ohio, USA - MAR 10, 2006
Dark brown with a dark tan head that holds for awhile. The aroma is rich malt with caramel and citrus. The body is heavy with a sweet rich flavor that lingers. The finish is a bit sour, when the sweetness finally fades.

tronraner (2459) - Walland, Tennessee, USA - MAR 7, 2006
Bottle. Pours a bold cherrywood color with dissipating beige head. It has a strong caramel and malt aroma along with some dark fruit and burnt wood. The flavor is very roasty and has almost a charcoal quality, but is kept within reason. The finish has a bit of a twang to it as some spicy hops kick in. As I get farther down the glass, it gets a little bit of chocolatey sweetness and the aftertaste gets piney. A decent brew.

TerryR (383) - Oswego, Illinois, USA - MAR 6, 2006
Deep amber with an off white head. Aroma is roasted malt with an odd note (spice?). Roasted caramel flavor. A bit sweet. Nice hop finish.

oldrtybastrd (3225) - Fort Walton Beach, Florida, USA - MAR 1, 2006
Pours a dark amber. Aromas of malts/toffee/spice. Flavors of malts, caramel, spice, and a lightly bitter finish.

Nate (3553) - Indiana, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 27, 2006
Fruity aroma of apple and pear. Mild malt sweetness with an undertone of almost turned milk. Lactic apple cider from a distance. Dark reddish brown clear with thin off-white or light cocoa lacing head. Medium bodied with medium-high carbonation. Starts with some muted sweetness. Coffee and chocolate notes, a bit of caramel and licorice. As taste grows, starts to become a bit too sweet. Sugar and sticky anise, rootbeer. Mild to medium hops finish. Floral but not overly bitter. Mild smoky coffee finish and sweetish after. Very little spice but a bit of cocoa.

roasted flavor, can’t shake the resemblence to coors winterfest, carbonation throughout, another decent summit product
