I know Americans typically think of cellar temperatures as "warm". This is not what I'm talking about.

What's more interesting to me is the idea of having a late Fall or Winter, seasonally appropriate beer at warmer than ambient temperatures. Quelque Chose comes to mind, as do Gluhbiers as holiday spiced beers intended to be served warm, but what else is there like this in the wide world of beer?

Has anyone had stout, spiced or not, warmed in a mug while out in the snow? I haven't but it sounds pretty attractive.

We have had this served in the U.K. Over the past few years. Warm mulled cider.

Serve with a side of milk and crumpets.

This and sake are all I can think of.

There are 2 or 3 Glühkriek’s in Belgium or at least there used to be, I haven’t seen them in a while. Like a warm lemonade, sweet candy, quite enjoyable, they never found much commercial interest.

I have once had a quadruple warmed up to 150 Farenheit, it was utterly revolting, one of the worst things I have ever tried. I don’t think that I want a warm stout.

Bottles in the microwave, start at around 30 seconds. Cans should not be put in the microwave; better to warm them up on the stove top.

I drink beers on the warmer side. Microwave, no.

Actually, microwaving beer is a thing, and some Ratebeerians take it seriously:

Well. I can imagine Deschutes Jubel Ale from the microwave could be stunning.

Never a stout (though I'd be open to trying it). Unibroue's Quelque Chose and Cascade's Gluh Kriek are the only two hot beers I've had off the top of my head, and I really liked them both.
The closest I've come to a hot stout is an Americano in one hand and a nitro Rasputin in the other, sitting on the deck of Crow's Feet Commons in Bend, overlooking Mirror Pond.
