kaser (6409) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - NOV 21, 2013
Draft at Murphy and sons. Tons of head on dark body. Carmel earthy aroma. Taste is somewhat bland. Not strong. Just not much going on I can distinguish. Not bad not good

riversideAK (6265) - Shoreline, Washington, USA - NOV 22, 2007
Pours a nice dark mahagony color with a thin head. The aroma is fruity with hints of brown sugar and perhaps a little roast. A initial bitterness is followed by a sweet toffee like malt flavor. Accompanying the toffee sweetness are notes of bitter fruit, chocolate, and a little roast. Smooth, full bodied with a touch of alcohol in the finish.

Cybercat (6211) - Georgia, USA - DEC 18, 2009
Aroma is quite strong, mainly spicy and slightly sweet, and has an evergreen component making it smell somewhat like a good IPA. It pours a dark, somewhat hazy, warm mahogany with a fairly thick off-white head. Spicy, malty flavor has a decided hoppy undertone and is a little sweet and a little bitter. Texture is fizzy and zingy, yet smooth and slick. Happy whatever-you-celebrate-this-time-of-year!

Skyview (6099) - Papoose Jct, Minnesota, USA - DEC 11, 2007
Picked up a single 12-oz bottle at the Papago Brewing Company tavern in Phoenix, AZ. Pours a semi-clear, dark copper amber brew with a creamy and thick off-white head that has some good retention and lacing. Aroma of dark caramel malt, some flowery hops, apple skin, and some pitted dark fruits. Taste is medium bodied, light carbonation with flavors of dry caramel malt, apple skin and some dried lemon zest. Finish has a dry bitter aftertaste with a caramel malt and apple skin aftertaste.

3.3
Bulk_Carrier (6065) - Vermont, USA - DEC 16, 2013
Pours dark red/brown and leaves the same colored body with a two finger foamy white head that rises a bit and falls at a nice pace but ends up creating a nice soapy looking valley with a ton of speckled foamy lacing all over the place (nice show); the smell is full of malty breadiness up front, light raisin and molasses enter in the background with some extra dark fruitiness entering in the aroma; the taste has caramel and sweet breadyiness with some added earthy orange and nutmeg; sweet sticky caramel aftertaste; sweet dry finish; its pretty easy on the palate for being a darker Winter Warmer, carbonation is pretty smooth and good for the style and for me; overall not bad for a darker Winter Warmer as I’m usually not that into the darker ones of this style, however I would definitely take this one over most of the darker winter warmers

notalush (5929) - Lakewood, Colorado, USA - DEC 2, 2009
Hazy amber pour, with a fizzy head that disappears rather rapidly - mildly oaky nose, with a lot of toffee and treacle sweetness, mild fig, a touch of obviously intentional oxidized character, slightly buttery notes - flavor of semi-dry, biscuity malts up front, followed by light cask-ish notes, moderate toffee, a touch of plum, light chocolate - finish is lightly bitter, with mild buttery notes - quite authentically british - fairly tasty.

hayduke (5701) - Eureka, California, USA - NOV 25, 2009
From a 12 oz bottle this beer had a coca cola brown color with a fat head that settled to a soapy scum on top with lots of lacing on the side of the glass. The nose it the aroma of malts. Medium body and mouthfeel. The flavor is mostly malts but there is some bitterness that continues over into a dry bitter finish. Good winter seasonal.

2.7
BrewDad (5667) - Olympia, Washington, USA - DEC 4, 2005
Dark bown with a slight haze to the beer. Nutty with a strong Caramel flavor. Liiked the light hops but seemed to be lacking a winter flavor that you look for in this type of beer. Did not get that overall good warm beer flavor that these should and will give off. Better luck next time Bridgeport.

3.4
stevoj (5636) - Boise, Idaho, USA - JAN 20, 2014
Nice and malty with s touch of spice (nutmeg?) , makes this a nice cold weather brew. Smooth, Aroma is malt and spice, taste is more of the same, dark amber/light brown with thin beige head, Just the right amount of spice makes this one of the better ones.

2.6
BückDich (5477) - McCall, Idaho, USA - JAN 17, 2003
A nice attempt at a winter ale, but had a poor musky aftertaste that was unsettling for me.
