COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This unique seasonal beer offers the warmth of an old English pub to help ward off the chill of a winter’s night. It has its origins in British neighborhood pubs where villagers would gather to shake off the damp cold of the bitter English winter. They’d share a pint or two of winter warmer ale by the fire, catch up on local gossip, and stay inside, where it was warm. We’ve brewed our version in the tradition of those winter ales, with a robust, full-bodied flavor and a tangy hint of spices.

16 oz tap. This tastes more like an IPA than anything. Bitter, fairly one-note. Not sure where the winter ale comes from.

Bottle @ a charity event. Deep amber pour with a small off-white head. Nice nose. Muted chocolate and a bit of caramel. Mellow spice, some red fruit, raisin. Similar flavor. Balanced chocolate, toffee and a some toasty malt richness. Slightly dry spiciness 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.

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...

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.
