3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Tap... Poured a hazy ruby with a beige head. Floral aroma with leafy hops and maybe brown sugar, well, something sweet. Highly carbonated and it had a foamy texture. Flavors of dry hops, caramel, malt, and plums for an extra sweetness. Besides the intense carbonation, this seemed pretty close to a Barley Wine.

Draft at TFD Boise: Pours a muddy orange color with a large sandy head. Aroma is intense with floral and citrus hoppiness, just a little malty sweets. I really liked the hop presence here, potent, but in balance with the caramel malt. This was really enjoyable.

Thanks to Gareth for the taster--Poured a deep brown-mahogany hue with a small rocky off-white head. Nose of sweet malts and biting piny hops. Sweet and fruity notes with mildly nutty flavors. Pretty good, as most TG beers are.

Well executed winter brew. Nice nutbrown color with fine carbonation. Sweet, thick, hoppy all in balance. Not overwhelmingly inspiring, but one of the best winter seasonals i tried this year.

Mmmm...this amber American Winter Warmer is darn tasty....sweet with a softly hoppy nose and body. really easy to drink so I had another pint.
Very nice and I liked it a lot. Nicely caramel with the hops keeping the malt from going overboard. Doesn’t coat the mouth so it’s tasty in that good way without being smackingly overwhelming.
