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.

Pours a dark reddish brown with a tan head that quickly fades to a ring. Streaky lacing. Aroma is nutty with some smokiness to it. Taste is wood, roasted malts, and some sweetness but a bit thin. Not bad overall.

Frank (2733) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - FEB 28, 2012
This pours a red brown color w/ a small head of fine bubbles. Overall, this is a subdued and relatively malty ale somewhat reminiscent of a strong bitter or maybe a less roasty brown ale. Nose is just a touch of roast malt and sweetness and a very mild tartness imply cherries and fruit once it is tasted. Full bodied w/ gentle carbonation, this feels like it is meant for moderate paced enjoyment and would go great w/ food. Pretty tasty beer.

12oz bottle from Pick’s poured into an English Pint. Pours black with a half finger of off-white head. Aroma of coffee, caramel and roasty malt. Taste is light bitter. Coffee and caramel. Medium bodied with a somewhat thin texture. Lively carbonation and a long coffee finish. Overall, I’m digging this beer. Great for tonight when it’s a solid 15 degrees outside.
