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.

Pours very dark reddish-brown with good lasting head and nice lacing. Right out of the fridge, aroma is subdued, a little dusty and metallic. However, given time to warm up, it becomes much nicer and clearer. Roasted nuts, chocolate, and mild winter spices. Taste continues with the subtle stout qualities coming through - caramel, malts, and slightly bitter dark chocolate. More warming than expected, and appropriate for winter. Winter spices are not in-your-face, but the subtlety works here. Let this warm up - it’s like night and day. Aftertaste is great.

chinchill (4271) - South Carolina, USA - SEP 2, 2013
12 oz bottle, a few months past BB date, served in a snifter. Pours clear but nearly opaque ruby-brown. The light tan head settles down to a thick ring and partial top coat but leaves full coating on a robust looking the side of the glass. Aroma: rather floral and unlike the flavor, a little boozy. Also more spicy than the taste., T: Nicely rich with chocolate, dark bread and a touch of coffee. More coffee in the lingering dark roasted malt aftertaste. A touch too sweet before the finish. Mouthfeel: medium-full bodied; very smooth with soft, medium carbonation. Semi-dry finish sometimes felt just a little too thin. O: very enjoyable and flavorful that resembles a porter. Recommended.

Inspired by the frigid temperatures (clocking in at a balmy 1 degree Fahrenheit) and because I hadn’t had a Summit brew in quite awhile, I gave this a shot. Overall a pleasant beer , deep brown with an rich malty character, the beer finishes cleanly with a hint of spruce, caramel with carbonation lingering on the tongue. No complaints.

The appearance is a clear reddish brown with a large beige head, and the aroma blends toasted and caramel malts, earthy hops, and clove. The taste blends a mild umami, a slight sweetness, and a touch of sourness; the palate fuses a medium body, malty finish, slick texture, and a soft carbonation.
