ChillCoat (1029) - Concord, California, USA - NOV 2, 2005
Bottled. Pours a bit murky. Amber colored with a white head. Yeasty aroma with notes of cherries, malt and caramel. Flavor is malty with planty of dark fruit notes. Somewhat watery and the carbonation seems somewhat flat. Finishes sweet but clean.

MoritzF (8493) - Bochum, GERMANY - NOV 2, 2005
(bottle) Clear copper colour with a foamy slightly off-white medium head. Dusty slightly sweet malty aroma with lemon peel. Light sweet fruity flavour, medium body. Smooth sweet malty taste, drying out towards the finish; slightly bitter and hoppy aftertaste with a consistent and almost complex malts character. A tasty seasonal brew, nothing great but well quaffable.

TheBeerGod (5249) - Newport News, Virginia, USA - OCT 23, 2005
Bottle. Amber bodied with a small whitish head. Nose is malty and sweet with caramel notes, dried fruits, light nuttiness and a bit of grass. Taste is just as malty and sweet with a nice caramel flavor lingering throughout. Mild grassiness and more dried fruit notes. Hint of nuttiness comes through here as well. Almost has a flavor like a beer mixed with a trail mix. Body is medium with lots of carbonation feel. Finish is more malts and caramel, light grass and fruit. Nothing too original or outstanding but very drinkable quenching.

Papsoe (25085) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - JUL 18, 2005
(Bottle 50 cl) Light, amber colored beer with distinct, floating impurities. Quite small head. This is probably what we in Denmark call a "Christmas-pilsener". Malty aroma and flavor, pleasant light caramel-sweetness and also a distinct bitterness. True to tradition, an excellent beer from Weltenburger. 051103

JonMoore (1858) - Loughborough, Leicestershire, ENGLAND - JUL 14, 2005
Bottle. Light amber colour with large white head. Nice strong malty caramel aroma. Taste is sweet, malty, chocolatey and some raisin. Light softly carbonated mouthfeel. Light bitter finish. I like these winter-traums, but don’t really see the "winter" bit. It’s 30 plus degrees centigrade here at the moment and this fits the bill nicely.

bierkoning (10201) - La Tropica, NETHERLANDS - JUL 13, 2005
Bottle provided by Dortmunder - many thanks!. Amber color. Malt and chocolate in the aroma. Bitter chocolate flavor. Hint of raisin. Rather thin. Malty, chocolate and bitter aftertaste.

Crosling (1863) - Loveland, Colorado, USA - JUN 20, 2005
Clear light orange. Fine, voluptuous white foam, which settles into a light ring. Light aroma, evoking a lightly grainy caramel and fruit character, with an herbal, lightly floral aromatic hop scent. Malt accented, with caramel and toffee malt flavors, soft apple and a touch of honey covered fruit.

leaparsons (8070) - Leicester, Leicestershire, ENGLAND - MAR 13, 2005
Red/brown with a small white head. Aromas are sweet malty and doughy with hints of fruit. Flavours are sweet and malty with a roast character, bready dough and some smokiness coming through. Has rich winter fruit, quite Xmassy. Quite light on the finish but all up to that point is very good.

dortmunder (961) - Herdecke, GERMANY - MAR 11, 2005
Bottled. Clear copper colour. Frothy, lacey, medium-sized head. Cookie malt aroma with what could be hints of cinnamon. Honeyish, slightly sweet taste with a cookie malt background. I really like the honeyish notes. I find it amazing how they put typical winter flavours into a beer, while staying with the reinheitsgebot. This is what German winterbeers should all be like. Thanks to joss for this late winter-season treat. Though this style fits the current weather better than the already avaiable maibocks.

jasonp (1555) - Leesburg, Virginia, USA - DEC 6, 2004
Cloudy amber with white head. Aroma is somewhat reminescent of molasses and dirt. Has has notes of caramel, toasty malts and some hints of fruit. Light/Watery palate with subtle carbonation.
