pours very dark brown (almost purplish in my light), with no head to speak of. the aroma was mostly air, with a twitch of medicinal sting. not much flavor, but what is there was smoky or oaky or both. watery mouth feel. the 8% abv is way too high a price to pay for this weak effort.

Tap at the source. Pours black. Small head. Aroma is caramel, fig, dark fruits. Flavor is fair fruit, fig, raisins, totally an English ale. Yea, I mean its an English style winter warmer. You should know the flavor of this before trying it. Oh, its fine

fly (1465) - austin, Tejas, Texas, USA - DEC 23, 2006
Nice. Malty and fair if seriously non-west-coast hop profile. Good beer, nothing wrong with it, perhaps a tad heavy on carbonation - wouild rate higher, but its just not exactly my style nor what Im in the mood for rihgt now. (in the mood for a bit more hops, other than that Im just being evil)

TChrome (1448) - Bedford, Texas, USA - DEC 22, 2006
Beer pours an attractive mahogeny color with a dark beige colored head that is mostly diminishing. Aroma is nice and rich with significant malt notes, mostly along the smokey and chocolate also a bit of spices. Flavor is nice and full with roasted nuts, chocolate and a very subtle but well done hoppy/spicey finish. No hint of the 8% ABV. Palate is full and rounded, no thin beer here. I agree with everyone else, Rahrs best to date. My only suggestion is that this might be best classed as an Old Ale? What do yall think?

dyetube (1374) - Hurst, Texas, USA - JUL 27, 2010
This beer pours a very deep amber/ almost black with a medium tan head. The aromas are bourbon, chocolate and a touch of cinnamon. The mouthfeel is sweet and watery. This was a great beer! Cant wait to have another! Cheers!

ttoadee (1335) - Austin, Texas, USA - JAN 3, 2016
Dark pour, finger of tan head. Nose is roasted malt. Bittersweet. Middle is coco and dark fruit. At the finish, "Someone got malt in my chocolate; someone got chocolate in my malt." Worth the effort.

sherm1016 (1273) - Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USA - DEC 12, 2011
12oz bottle. Pours a deep brown color with a tan head. Aroma is malty, nutty, a little roasty. Medium on the palate with soft carbonation. Flavor is sweet, malty, a little holiday spice, with a warm roasty finish. Nice.

SPDickerman (1219) - Texas, USA - MAR 22, 2012
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.

Strong yeast aroma with a slight coffee scent. Deep brown with a medium head. Light bitter coffee flavor with some tangy roasted malts.

UPDATED: NOV 28, 2011 re-rate (original was 2009) either I changed or this beer changed; MUCH better than my original rate (below). malty aroma with a hint of cocoa. Pour is black with big beige head with long lacing. many levels of flavor - not much sweetness; beer starts smooth, some dark fruit flavors followed by chalky chocolate and beer ends dry. med-thick palate. I LIKE!! Dissapointed; my first winter warmer and it was... bland nice aroma of cloves? malts but there was none of that in the taste..
