Erzengel (7126) - Wuppertal, GERMANY - JAN 25, 2016
Many thanks to my "Santa 2015" jsquire for this bottle! The beer starts mild and smooth. Not too intense with a nice malty body. Smooth and a bit grainy, easy to drink. Round and fresh with a dry and slightly roasted malty aftertaste. Not much bitterness, dry with hints of caramel. Nice though.

Turboninja (427) - Tampere, FINLAND - JAN 15, 2016
Bottle@home, from Little Italy Wines, Cleveland, USA. Medium aroma with honey, cinnamon, cardamom, cherry and other Christmas flavors. Deep orange color with small light beige head and hazy liquid. Medium taste with smooth slightly sweet Christmas flavors like in Aroma. Medium taste spectrum and medium/short aftertaste with cinnamon and some sweet malts. Medium/Light palate with medium/light carbonation. Overall, quite mediocre with basic Christmas flavors in a bit watery style. Alcohol is masked quite well.

Pours dark copper with a thin tan head. Aroma of coriander and cinnamon. Initial taste of mild "Christmas cookie" spices. Soft and delicate on the tongue and NOT overpowering. ---Rated via Beer Buddy

Panzuriel (1698) - Westerville, Ohio, USA - DEC 21, 2015
on tap at Melt Bar & Grilled Easton. The Brew Kettle Winter Warmer is a Darker copper red clear brew with a decent head of white bubbles. Nose is Nutmeg, cinnamon and ginger. The taste is a sweeter medium malt with a good amount of the afore mentioned spices. A pleasant amount of spice, which is a fine line to walk. Medium body. A decent winter beer, but not greatly different than a number of similar products.

Bottle thanks to DrSilverworm. Dark amber pour with a thin ring of head. Aroma is heavily spiced with cinnamon and ginger but there’s a really nice sweetness that comes off like apple cider, honey, and donuts. Taste is decent. Too much spice like most winter ales. And this one seems like it’s covering up something really nice too. Strong cinnamon and ginger, light honey and apples. Reminds me of cinnamon, apple cider from a mill but just too much spice here..

Aroma: Very sweet, with hints of honey and spices. Appearance: Dark amber with no head. Taste: Heavy sweetness with hints of sourness. Palate: Full bodied, slick oily texture, soft carbonation, long sweet finish. Overall: Very saccharine. I'm not thrilled about this one at all. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bottle from a recent trade. Poured into a snifter at home...hot as balls in South Florida...95 today. Good day for a Winter beer. Aroma is heavy breads, sweet malts, orange, cinnamon, candy dark sugars, and gingerbread. Taste is similar with the bread, gingerbread, orange, sweet candy, and dark caramel malts. Booze finish with spices. Medium to full body. Tasty.
