UPDATED: OCT 25, 2009 This is an amazing tasting beer. It was a perfect mix of caramel and spices, with the right touch of alcohol. Yes. Fratto (2845) - Arlington, Texas, USA - SEP 22, 2009
Bottles, tap, brewery. I have a ton of this each winter. Dark, dark red pour. Cinnamon and malt aroma. Tastes of caramel, malts, a little sweetness, and a hint of alcohol. Thick feel with a lasting aftertaste. SPDickerman (1239) - 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. GODiSSOUTHERN (390) - Virginia, USA - JAN 5, 2012
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. michaelc1945 (2) - Arlington, Texas, USA - JAN 7, 2013 does not count
Pours dark brown with a small tan head with allows for a very savory aroma. Best drunk from a glass with a large mouth for better enjoyment of this ale’s sweet, malty fragrance. It tastes great and will be my go to winter seasonal in the future.

Great beer. The only thing I wish for this beer is that it had more aromatic malt. It is perfect for a cold night. Great beer overall. Namespayne (65) - - DEC 2, 2014
Long Neck--> pint glass. Dark brown, large head. Aroma of rum raisin and molasses with notes of vanilla and pecan, very complex and hard to pin down. Hoppy taste, aftertaste brings back most of the aroma plus subtle spices and notes of espresso at the finish. Alcohol well concealed. Too much hops for the interesting mix of flavors but I don't notice it so much after a couple sips. It's a very decent ale and very tasty.

From a 22 oz bottle. Pours dark brown with large head in a Lost Abbey chalice. Aroma of chocolate, vanilla, amber malts, light bourbon. Significant carbonation and mouthfeel. Flavors of rich malts, milk chocolate, oak, light bourbon. Rich, flavorful, relatively easy drinking and not too big in alcohol. TXHomeBrew (1) - Houston, Texas, USA - JAN 11, 2016 does not count
@ 45 deg F, cocoa dominates aroma with hints of toasted bread. Has a nice coffee-like bitterness, but it clashes with the up-front sweetness of the dark malt profile. Medium body. Goes down easy. Very solid beer.
