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 mahogany with some tan head. Smells of roast, dry chocolate, and maybe nuts. Thin and watery in the taste dept. Some roast and dry chocolate are noticed, finishes bitter.

HomeBrewHawk (464) - De Soto, Kansas, USA - MAR 21, 2008
12oz. brown bottle served in a shaker pint glass. Poured a deep brown with less than a finger of white head. Deep malty aroma, molasses and caramelized sugar. Rich malty flavor and mouthfeel. Plenty of caramel malt. Not a lot of hop bitterness, but enough to balance out the malt sweetness. Very easy drinking, solid beer.

Deep amber color with a rocky off white head. Tastes like toffee with hints of chocolate and coffee. Has a sweet malty aroma with a robust taste and roasted finish.

It’s dark enough, but a tad thin in "flavour".

Sampled at Food and Froth. Good. Exactly what it claims to be, nothing more, nothing less. Nice for a cold snowy night.

lilannie (384) - Adamstown, Maryland, USA - DEC 2, 2003
Aroma: Kind of smells like cleaning supplies or rubbing alcohol with a bit of carmel and chocolate malts mixed in. Appearance: Dark brown, reddish with a small head. Flavor: Kind of watery, dry, and burnt tasting with slight chocolate and coffee flavors. Palate: Smooth with a bit of a harsh aftertaste, slightly carbonated like soda. Overall: Not very good wouldn't buy it again.
