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.

Pour from a 12oz bottle. Medium brown brew with two fingers of almost white head that settles to a consistent smaller head. Aroma of malt, nuts, spice. Taste is sweet malt, nuts, spice, a little dry in the finish but sweet throughout. Very tasty and pleasant.

December 8, 2012 bottle at haskell’s tasting. Light brown pour with nice amount of head. Roasted malt and hops but the aroma and taste were very mild. Not what I was expecting based on the name, but oh well it was free.

Good old local winter seasonal. Had on tap at a movie theater (Skyfall). Roasty malty goodness, light on hops, dark coloring (or maybe that’s just because the theater was dark...) $5/pint

12oz bottle - pours brown with thin ivory head and thin lacing. Nose is roasted chocolate and herbal hops. Flavor adds coffee and a general malty goodness. Taste is moderately sweet with decent bitterness. Medium body with soft carbonation. Mildly spicy aftertaste. Sticky mouthfeel. Decent.

Dark red/copper colour. Malty, a bit of a bitter finish. Nothing too interesting here. A touch watery. Okay.
