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.

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

Slick (1969) - Thief River Falls, Minnesota, USA - MAY 17, 2003
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.

Had this on tap over thanksgiving, this beer had virtually no head and was dominated by an off malty sweetness. I really like to support Summit, but this is one I skip.

Dark brown, opaque. Small frothy head, moostly diminishing. Malt nose, touch of hops, slightly sweet. Not bad but I prefer the other offerings from Summit.

SuIIy (1983) - Burlington, Vermont, USA - MAR 12, 2005
UPDATED: MAR 23, 2005 Pours very dark with a fluffy light head that subsides quickly. Aroma is lightly hoppy. A bitter aftertaste is the best part of a less then average flavor.
