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.

Satisfying without being quite distinctive: not worth a special search, but worth drinking if it is in front of you. (Downgraded after I finished the sixpack I bought: it just wasn’t a beer I looked forward to every day.)

hotstuff (4058) - Indiana, USA - DEC 18, 2003
A small sized tan head that creamy and smooth with fine-medium sized bubbles that completely diminished. The body was carbonated with a mahogany hue. The nose malty with some caramel notes. The flavor was malty and caramel as well with a smooth mouthfeel and it was a medium bodied beer with fair lacing.

This smelled like glue. Mostly flavorless and dry. Some bitter notes in the end. Medium finish. Also, there were some baked raisin pie flavors, which was nice.

light brown with a tan head. not too much in the aroma. slightly roasty toast aroma. flavor is a bit weak. mostly sweet roasted malt. body seems a bit light and the finish is slightly watery. not a horrible beer but nothing great.

maltdog (616) - Colorado, USA - NOV 26, 2007
Portlike ruby-brown and glear as glass. Tired head is composed of large bubbles. Gentle caramel, maraschino, and smoke scents. Surprising nutty flavor with cream soda, raisin, and fenugreek. Body is creamy and on the light side of medium, but a little chalky and drab. Zero carbonation. Subdued aftertaste sports roasty coffee-chocolate and seasalt flavors. Not bad, but not that good either.

Opaque brown pour with a thin head. Aroma of very light vanilla. Taste is thin mouthfeel, slight coffee, little else. Taste tails into slight bittering.
