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.

Not mush body or kick for a winter beer. PLeasant spices are notable.

Nice super dark amber or i guess you could say reddish brown color.Foamy long lasting tan head.Spicy malt aroma,with mild hints of coffee.Very strong coffee flavor little bite to it with a mild hint of vanilla in the tail end of the taste,slight amount of hops in the flavor but the most pronounced flavor is the coffee and possibly some dark chocolate.It also has a some what thin feel in the mouth.Not bad,but id rather have a great divide hibernation over this one.

Hammster (187) - Eagan, Minnesota, USA - NOV 16, 2007
Bottle. Poured a nice chestnut red with a pretty big near brown head. Aroma is pretty milod--rost malts and only a little spice. Taste is burnt caramel malts with a little smoke flavor. Subtle spice. Finish is smooth mild smoke. Not too bad for the first winter beer Iíve had this season.

Tap. Pours a deep copper with tan head. Aroma is roasted malts but nothing overwhelming. (I couldíve been a bit plugged up from being outside.)Taste was decent, creamy, nutty, and finishing with a light coffee taste. Not overly carbonated and excellent lacing throughout. Great way to end a day on the slopes or ice-skating...sitting by a fire and putting up your feet!

Drjohnrock (549) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - DEC 18, 2007
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.

Drught at pub in Ida Noyes. Pours dark brown with nice tan head. Aroma is coffee, caramel. Flavor is coffee, nutty and roast, very sweet. Seems a little out of balance and a bit thin. Nothing special but goes down easy.
