The Winter Warmer is a full-flavoured dark brown beer with a round, malty flavour. Its nose is dominated by hops and alcohol, with notes of chocolate, citrus and plum on the palate. The fruitiness then gives way to a bitter finish. Colour: dark brown (light malt, Crystal and chocolate)

Enjoyed a few 4oz samplers at the new brewpub in Ottawa on Sparks st. then proceeded to rate this great winter seasonal. Arrived with a big foamy head and goas away quickly but leaves a small layer with some bubbles. Has a pretty dark amber appareance with reddish hues. Good lacing. Has aromas of malts and hops for sure. Quite flavourful with a good balance of hops and malts, notes of caramel and bit of chocolate and coffee but just enough, and not too abundant. Smooth creamy malty mouthfeel. If it’s 9% abv, sure doesn’t show that much, which is a good thing but deceiving as well. Good stuff but too bad only a seasonal.

Eructoblaster (3891) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - DEC 30, 2014
On tap at the Ottawa brewpub. Dark brown body with a thick, lasting, beige foamy head. Good malty/hoppy aroma with brown sugar and spicy hints. Alcohol is subtle. Its robust malty/hoppy taste carries spicy, brown sugar, and woody notes. Ends with a decent, moderately warming, bitter sweet finish. Not bad.

Peach, plum, hint of cocoa. Caramel malt, peach, red fruit, candy, mild hoppy finish. More decent than I expected, a bit too sweet maybe.

Pours a ruby-colored with a thin white head that leaves good lacing. Nose is of alcohol, caramel. Taste is not really sweet and lightly spicy, feeling somewhat fresh. Quite bitter. Caramel and herbs/spices finish. Body is light to medium, carbonation way too high. Or maybe it is some alcohol showing? Nah, this is the carbonation. Anyway, not a success.

(bouteille 750ml, nommée Chaufferette 2013 Bourbon, 9.1%) - Bière rubis, semi-voilée, coiffée d’un mince col de mousse blanche. Le nez présente des fruits rouges, un peu d’alcool et des houblons herbacés. En bouche, les houblons renvoient la balle à des saveurs de caramel doux. Le boisé-vanillé surclasse le bourbon qui se fait surtout sentir en finale avec l’alcool qui s’étale en arrière-goût. Plus la bière se réchauffe, plus l’alcool est persistant. Trop? Peut-être un peu oui. Sinon, c’est très bon!

[5056-20130111] Tap. Mild grainy malt aroma. Clear, bright auburn body with a medium-lasting foamy off-white head. Lightly buttered grains flavour has a floral booze background. Medium body is fairly boozy. Interesting, quite bold. (6/4/6/3/14) 3.3

jercraigs (9872) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JAN 18, 2013
2013-01-11. Crisp dark red amber body, nice beige head and lace. 3++ Aroma is prominently spicey, lightly alcoholic, muted malt. Flavour is similarly quite spicey and moderately alcoholic. Dryness of the beer accentuates the spice. Mild malt eventually comes out as you go, very lightly leafy whispers to the hops on occasion. Average palate is a bit light for the beer. Body and dryish overall impression suggests an aggressive fermentation, a bit more malt character would add to the drink ability, alcohol is noticeable but relatively mild considering the strength. Decent. On tap at 3 Brewers, Toronto
