16 oz tap. This tastes more like an IPA than anything. Bitter, fairly one-note. Not sure where the winter ale comes from. jackl (8597) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - NOV 16, 2015
UPDATED: NOV 29, 2017 Bottle @ a charity event. Deep amber pour with a small off-white head. Nice nose. Muted chocolate and a bit of caramel. Mellow peppery spice, some red fruit, raisin. Similar flavor. Balanced chocolate, toffee and a some toasty malt richness. Slightly dry earth / pepper hop character on the finish. Medium body, active carb. Enjoyable.

Pours a dark mahogany color with a good tan head. Aroma of roasted malt, bit of dark fruit and spice. Taste of roasted malt, dark fruit with trace of spice and citrus. Decent bitterness and a clean finish. Medium body, smooth with a bit od a warming feel. Nice beer for the cover time of the year. Dacrza (1086) - Great Meadows, New Jersey, USA - APR 25, 2015
DATE TASTED: April 25, 2015... GLASSWARE: Barley Creek pint... OCCASION: saying goodbye to the last of the winter bees in the fridge... APPEARANCE: dark mahogany body; effervescence is tough to gauge; thick, creamy off-white head holds firm long after pouring; tracings are symmetrical and clear... AROMA: an alluring mix of bright, citric scents, nutty malts and floral aromas--caught me off-guard with its complex array; some damp berry and ... PALATE: begins with an ESB’s smoothness, but returns to the teeth with a whiplash bite; medium-bodied, creamy, soft,, and flirting with a porter’s cola-like presence... TASTE: a reasonable blend of malts and fruits---cranberry, pear especially--merge with vanilla, some playful hops, pepper and cola... OVERALL: not as warming as the aroma suggests; the profile overall is useful but not memorable--finishes with rocky malts and the enjoyably creamy aspects of root beer... abcfan (928) - New Jersey, USA - APR 23, 2015
Pours brown / red with a tan head. Aroma is sweet malt and spice. A bit thin in the mouth. Light spice finish.

Pours a ruby red with brownish hues. Roasted malts and spices on the nose. Caramel, molasses, brown sugar. A nice ale for cold weather. gripweed57 (3052) - Hamilton Square, New Jersey, USA - MAR 12, 2015
12 ounce bottle. Dark reddish brown color with a big rocky beige head. Earthy roasted malt aroma. Tasty roasted malt flavor has notes of caramel, dark bread and dark cherries. Complex and spicy with a creamy mouthfeel and full body. Finish is slightly dry and has notes of dark chocolate. Tasty. miyauchi38 (1117) - chicago, Illinois, USA - MAR 11, 2015
