The best winter ale so far tasted in 2013! Nice cinnamon, clover and spices flavor. This beer begs to be drink in front of a fireplace! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

islay (2331) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - DEC 7, 2016
12 oz. bottle, consumed on 12-6-16. Enjoy By 02/15/17. Pours a clear, slightly amber sable. Moderate to large amount of taupe-colored head. The head has a golden hue that reminds me of golden egg nog. Nice color and nice head. Spicy aroma features scents of ginger, raisin rice pudding, and pumpkin spice. The smell does evoke Christmas but also is somewhat artificial. The flavor is more subtle than the aroma in its spiciness; rather, the flavor is dominated by malt flavors. Toffee and some wood and leather. Cinnamon comes on strong upon multiple sips. Nutmeg too, I suppose, although thats a less distinctive flavor. Light to medium body. Perhaps a touch undercarbonated. Forgettable palate effects. Fits the bill. Very good appearance, pretty good taste, average aroma, and below average palate. Overall, an acceptable although not inspired craft beer.

badgerben (4921) - Blaine, Minnesota, USA - DEC 5, 2016
Dark copper color wih a thin head. Aroma of cinnamon and allspice. Flavor has strong toasty caramel and warm spicing. Seems like allspice and light orange peel, then moderate cinnamon. Bready. Finishes dry. Medium body.

Harpoon Winter Warmer has a moderate, bone-colored head, a clear, bubbly, copper appearance, and minimal lacing left on the glass. Aroma is of pie or holiday cake spices, with a brown ale under-aroma. Taste is of the spices, a bit of white pepper, very low bitterness, brown bread crust, and a touch of chocolate cake. Mouthfeel is light to medium, and Harpoon Winter Warmer finishes crisp and highly drinkable! RJT

onceblind (7896) - Denver, Colorado, USA - JAN 16, 2016
Deep nutty Amber with a thin white cap. Gingerbread and pseudo-pumpkin spice aroma with more spice than malt on the nose, and light cinnamon apple. Light and crisp body with cinnamon apple flavors and a little earthy caramalt, and a fair dose of holiday/pumpkin spice tones. Really meh.

Nice color and taste. The winter spices are well done; not over done as in many winter brews. Tasted on draft at Churchill Tavern, New York. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

DrSilverworm (9671) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - JAN 2, 2016
12oz bottle, from my local Kroger. Enjoy by 1/15/16. Clear brown red color. Thin off-white head. Leaves decent ridges of lace. Red / amber ale kind of aroma to it. Some caramel, more toasty malt though. More cinnamon and nutmeg though, all else is mild underneath that. Medium body. Kind of soft, lighter to moderate carbonation. Moderate sweet taste, very mild bitterness, some spicy edge. Alright winter ale. But pretty basic. Not much to it at all.

Bottle. Pours red with a half-inch head. Aromas of cinnamon and caramel. Flavors are caramel, spice, ginger and bread. Finishes with a bit of earthy hoppiness. Clean, fizzy mouthfeel. Not bad, but not exceptional.

Pours hazy blonde with a white head. Nose is sweet and slightly citrus and herbal. the flavor is fairly thin and leans toward light citrus and a touch of coriander. light carbonation not quite sure how this is considered a winter warmer
