8% ?? Wow never noticed. Caramel and butter scotch. Dry finish. almost not entierly not at all like hazelnut in there. A malty beer with a bit of spice. The best beer from this brewer so far.

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.

Poured deep brown/red with no head.Carbonation??? where was it. Aromas of malt and burbon. Thin body with flavors of malt and a little bit of hops. Not feelin this beer at all. The only good quality about this one is how it hides the 8%ABV!

Pours dark brown with small tan head out of bottle. Aroma of malt, caramel, and toasted nuts. Flavor similar to aroma with emphasis on the toasted nuts. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

aroma was weak and faintly sweet. looks highly carbonated/bubbly with little head. flavor is good, grapefruit hop bitterness with roasted malt finish. fair enough deal.

This one reminds me alot of the Trader Joes Winter beer. Light in color, body and mouthfeel with not a whole lot going on. Wouldve liked to have seen alot more body and spice character. With the previous in mind, this still does exhibit some decent malt character with notes of caramel, dates and candied fruit.

redgold07 (308) - Irving, Texas, USA - DEC 10, 2007
Pours a dark ruby color with a very small tan head. Aroma is malty with some caramel. Flavor is rich of roasted chocolate and caramel, with a hint of the 8% alcohol. One of my favorite Rahr brews, as good, if not better than the Oktoberfest. 12 oz. bottle.

On tap at the Alamo Drafthouse Lakecreek and poured into a Trappist-style glass, this seemed somewhat misnamed as a winter warmer. It has little in common with the flat, fruitcake-ish tastes that you get from, say, Sammy Smiths annual offering of the same name. Instead, it reeks of heavy roast aromas and flavors: molasses, dark chocolate, hints of espresso. All of these met just enough hops to avoid cloying your throat, making this a nice sipper hat evoked a chocolate stout.

UPDATED: DEC 18, 2006 Pour is deep copper/caramel color with a rocky off-white head that doesnt last long. Nose is slightly roasty with a bit of dried fruit smell. A small amount of spices can be detected. Palate is smooth and medium bodied. Taste is caramelized malt with just a touch of alcohol in the finish.
