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.

Poured from a 12oz bottle. Carmel notes and malty. Had over Christmas with family. Wouldn’t need to have it again

Sampled at Food and Froth. Good. Exactly what it claims to be, nothing more, nothing less. Nice for a cold snowy night.

Like a baby English Bwine. Great. Enjoyable. Un toasty. Un roasty. Just a malt bomb with nice dark fruit flavors. Good. Enjoy ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Full reddish brown pour, with a thin tan head. Aroma is dark roasted malts, nuts and fruits, with a tootsie roll chocolate note at the end. There is also some metal scraps in the aroma that isn’t very good (I had a couple of bottles with this issue). Chocolate, medium roast almost lightly burnt. Sweet and spicy finish. Slightly syrupy. This is a fair offering from Summit.

Deep amber with an off white head. Aroma is roasted malt with an odd note (spice?). Roasted caramel flavor. A bit sweet. Nice hop 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.

lilannie (384) - Adamstown, Maryland, USA - DEC 2, 2003
Aroma: Kind of smells like cleaning supplies or rubbing alcohol with a bit of carmel and chocolate malts mixed in. Appearance: Dark brown, reddish with a small head. Flavor: Kind of watery, dry, and burnt tasting with slight chocolate and coffee flavors. Palate: Smooth with a bit of a harsh aftertaste, slightly carbonated like soda. Overall: Not very good wouldn't buy it again.

This deep dark savory winter treat comes from my home town. I really like this year’s vintage and look forward to enjoying the season with it. Great winter beer.

Tweety (377) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - MAR 18, 2008
A good winter brew. Dark in color with a somewhat bitter brown sugary body. Warms the insides. I like Summit, and this is their best seasonal in my mind.

A decent ale. At first I did not think I would like it. It poured a dark color but was not as...flavorful as I thought it should be. I may have over-rated this one but it is not bad.
