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

Twelve ounce bottle from Biggs. Sweet aroma with hints of licorice, spices and alcohol backbone (even though at 5.9% it isnít THAT strong), dark ruby/brown color, minimal but lasting head with no appreciable lacing, light to medium body, light to medium bittersweet flavor with spicy notes, nice bittersweet finish. This isnít the biggest or boldest winter brew you can find but itís pretty decent--Iíve paid more for some other winter season beers and gotten less.

Tap at Luce Hopkins. Dark black winter variety. Very faint aroma and light head. A common option in Mpls and traditionally one of the better winter ones. Light roasted flavor, heavy on malt. Good sweetness. No coffee to be found in this one. Kind of like a comfortable winter sweater. Enjoy when applicable.

Tap. Pint. Black with tan head and good lacing. Slightly sweet aroma. Starts bitter, with typical winter flavors. Has some toffee notes, then finishes clean. A Minneapolis winter staple.

Dark Clear Brown with a semi fluffy head, sparse lacing and very light carbonation. The nose is mainly spices, caramel, toffee, a touch of vanilla and some mild hops. Taste is Rich Chocolate, Toffee, Coffee flavors with some barley and yeast notes. Fairly lightweighted body and mild carbonation so itís very easy to drink. Good Beer!

Ohhh my this is one delicious brew!! Complexity in flavors makes this one a truly superb sipping brew! Very easy on the palate but go slow and enjoy this brew. Surely one of the best offerings from the Summit Brewery line-up. A delicious lingering of cocoa in the aftertaste as well. One of the best English strong ales (ESAs) that I have savored in quite a while!

UPDATED: JAN 7, 2010 12 oz bottle from the Four Firkins. Deep red color, aroma is malty with a slight caramel note. Flavor is mostly hoppy with some roasted caramel coming through. Finish is bitter/hoppy. **re-rate Had some of this on tap at Bostonís last night and it was really good. I got a lot more of the roasted/nutty/chocolate flavors out if it.
