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.

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.

Pours dark brown with a light tan head mostly lasting. Very creamy and full bodied on the palate. The taste is malty, of dark roasted malts, with some molasses and caramel overtones. A bit of hops and spice on the finish. A fine sipping ale on a winterís eve. Pairs well with nuts or pretzels.

Living in Minnesota my whole life I have had many of these, however, itís been years since I had my last one and couldnít remember the taste. Great balance and drinkability. Light spice, nice ale, Summit is a fine brewery.

JoshuaB (476) - Detroit, Michigan, USA - OCT 29, 2005
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.

Itís dark enough, but a tad thin in "flavour".
