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.

(Bottle) Pours virtually no head and is a ruby-brown colour. Typical ale aroma of malt and molasses. Initial taste of watery malt, as stated below, then a mid-flavour peak of spice and strong malt. Finishes with a fizzy, hoppy and red wine flavour that fades into dry. Very delightful mix of flavours. Thanks to Crit for this great West Coast experience.

Bottle courtesy of chickencoop. Reviewed from notes. Pours a medium brown with a thin, off white head. The nose brings a small amount of spice forward. I think Im getting cinnamon and nutmeg, but never entirely sure. I really need to start having these beers with my spice rack nearby. A bit of caramel and toffee in there as well. Taste is a bit of doughy bread with light caramel and some spice. Light to medium body with good carbonation levels. Not at all overspiced, this drank pretty well.

Bulk_Carrier (5032) - Essex Junction, 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 Im usually not that into the darker ones of this style, however I would definitely take this one over most of the darker winter warmers

Pours a dark amber. Aromas of malt, caramel, fruit. Flavor is kinda sweet, fruity, mildly spicy, with a nice hop background.

kidmartinek (4999) - austin, Texas, USA - DEC 21, 2009
Dark maple brown color, small head. Very fruity aroma. Flavor is malty and molasses. Small bite, small carbonation. Smewhat tasty. The palate is a little bland and the texture is slightly rough.

travita (4956) - Dallas, Texas, USA - JAN 4, 2008
Dark brown in color and cloudy with an average size head. Hop aromas with slight caramel hints. Hop flavors dominate. Not the best as a winter warmer.

ChainGangGuy (4881) - Woodstock, Georgia, USA - DEC 18, 2007
Appearance: Pours a clear, dark red-brown body with a medium, fizzy off-white head. Smell: Dark caramel with freshly-grated cinnamon, a whiff of hops, and notes of dark cherries. Taste: Mild malt flavor with a slight dark caramel sweetness. Hint of chocolate. A pinch of mulling spices blends with the cherry pie fruitiness. Only a very faint hint of hops near the semi-dry finish. Mouthfeel: Medium-body. Medium carbonation. Drinkability: While not the most remarkable example of the style, it is still fairly easy-drinking for a lighter winter warmer.

chinchill (4759) - South Carolina, USA - APR 7, 2014
12 oz bottle poured clear, red-amber with a very good head. Malty, very lightly spicy (perhaps just from hops). Chocolate by the finish, is quickly joined by a hint of coffee. Aftertaste is dominated by dark roasted malts. O: decent but unexceptional brown ale.
