Bottle. Pours a clear amber with a small frothy beige head leaving sticky lacing along the glass. The aroma is a bready malt with caramel and roast. Thin mouthfeel with a rich malt and chocolate with a bready finish. Easy to drink hiding the alcohol well. A good English strong ale from Rahr.

Bourbon aroma. Dark brown appearance. Mild bourbon flavor. Sweet malt. It is ok. Sweet malt aftertaste. alalvarez75 (57) - New York, USA - APR 22, 2012
Decent for Rahr, but not worth trading for. Smooth sweetish taste, that comes close to a strong dark.

Pours dark brown with hints of red at the edges of the glass and a small yellowish tan head. Smells of rich malt, hints of caramel and chocolate, and a touch of woody hops. Taste is sweet with a nice balance of chocolate and caramel, no real bitterness present. Full-bodied with a smooth texture and very soft mouth-carbonation, Rahr and Sons Mild Winter Winter Warmer finishes with a lingering soft bitterness. dfinney23 (3395) - Houston, Texas, USA - MAR 20, 2012
12oz bottle pours cola brown with a very thin tan head. Aroma is dark and sweet, roasted malt and raisins. Taste adds a bit of spice and wood.

22 oz. bottle courtesy of a trade with crajun. Pours dark brown with a thin-moderate tan head that lasted through the first quarter of the glass and left partial lace. Pleasant aroma of lightly roasted malt, caramel, and some bourbon vapors. The flavor is a bit sweet with malt, caramel, a bit of vanilla, and some mild roast. Mild bitterness at the finish. Fairly well-rounded. Enjoyable. rougeau13 (3158) - Richmond, Texas, USA - FEB 2, 2012
Really dark brown with a small light brown head. Aroma of chocolate, roast, caramel, coffee and light spice. The taste is akin to a thin imperial stout. Rich chocolate, wood, roast and coffee dominate. Then there’s a mild bitterness in the finish. Medium-full bodied with low carbonation and a mild alcohol presence. Nice.

This beer has all the same great quality of the end of winter warmer minus the bourbon. Vanilla, chocolate, raisin, and super smooth. Love it. Styles (2014) - Lincoln Park, Michigan, USA - DEC 23, 2011
Courtesy of rayl101. Mahogany, film, spotty lacing. Vegatal and spice in aroma, nothing else. Flavor loaded with spice, nothing else. Can’t get past the vegetal character. Really nothing going on here.
