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.

hondajunkie (89) - Tinley Park, Illinois, USA - APR 14, 2013
Bottle from Winter Sampler 12 pk. Pours a dark, coffee like brown with a 2 finger dark khaki head with some decent lacing. Has aromas of cereal grains, a subtle hint of toffee, touch of pine. Medium carbonation on the tongue if roasted malt, touch of spice with a smooth creamy texture. Aromas and flavors more pronounced as the beer warmed up. Good beer.

Tap at Pizza Luce. Red brown with a thin off-white head. Caramel, bread, and light mineral aromas. Quite sweet with mineral bitterness. Lighter body with a watery feel. Typical malty sweet beer.

Dark red color, no real head. A little chocolate flavor, a little spice. Nothing special.

So my impression of this brewer is that they make very pretty brews where the loveliness tends to be skin deep. This one is remarkably unremarkable, save for the odd confluence of candy and burnt bark.

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.

JoeM500 (1906) - Crown Point, Indiana, USA - SEP 7, 2004
Jay and i agreed that it smells like paste. Cola brown, thick body. Caramelly, scotchy, malty brew with hints of toffee and a very dry finish.

PattyBoy (302) - North Liberty, Iowa, USA - JAN 25, 2005
Dark Brown, thin head. Flavor is sweet, raisins and plum, with a hint of roasts. Hops are slightly spicy. There are a few things going on in the beer, but they don’t seem to be working real well together. It was OK.

roder60 (1288) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 30, 2005
Pours a clear dark brown color with a small amount of wispy white lacy head. Aroma is a bit of brown sugar and nothing else. Flavor is very sweet and brown sugary once again, with bits of caramel. Overall, pretty watery and weak, but decent enough for a session winter brew.
