Heated? Quelque chose is the only one I had, I enjoyed the experience but haven't bothered repeating it. High room temp? I will drink a stout off the shelf with no issues normally.

I had the beer cold and warmed, my preference was clearly for cold:

In general, I have no desire for room temperature beer, although I like to sip on a cool barley wine as it slowly warms up.

I've had the mulled quelque chose and I liked it. To be honest, I don't mind Bigfoot at room temperature.

This seems to very much love or hate it beer. I have not seen in for awhile, I wonder if it should be retired.

Had liefmans gluhkriek recently. Much preferred it cold to warm personally

this. label says it's an "apres-ski" beer. We tried various ways of warming it up, but they method on the label resulted in the tastiest product

I ticked it last christmas, and about 3 months ago, a Munich bottle shop added it to their range, so no. Definitely not retired yet.

But the last ratings from the US seem to come from 2014.

Cold temperature and carbonation aid refreshment.

Warm temperature and no carbonation aid flavour.

If I'm simply thirsty I'll happily drink a cool (not cold) lager or pale ale. Hopefully not too carbonated, but a little fizz can be attractive. For thirst quenching I like those fruit flavoured ciders straight from the fridge. Great fun.

If I want flavour, then it's room temperature. None of my beers go in the fridge. Not even lagers. But it's each to their own.

I've not tried a warmed up beer - ie, a beer higher than the ambient room temperature. I'm wondering what the advantage would be? I sometimes drink coffee that has cooled down, and I find that room temperature coffee tends to have more flavour than warm/hot coffee. But I like the associations and comfort I get from the warmth of a coffee, so prefer to drink it warm. I suppose a warmed up beer can offer the same comforts as a warm coffee or hot chocolate. There is already the comfort from the warmth of the alcohol in a strong beer, which we traditionally drink when the weather turns cold. But warming up the beer sounds interesting.

I'll give it a go.

We did a "Glühwein", so a mulled wine with a Doppelbock, added some spices and it was quite okay, better than many of the shitty Glühwein served on german Christmas markets.

Facebook just showed me a post from Schneider Weisse from yesterday about Glühbier!

Got to:

https://schneider-weisse.de/schneider-blog

And look for the article:

Sommelierwissen: Wie man sich für Glühbier erwärmt...

It is in German but the recipe should be easy to translate. They also wanna sell their own spice mix in the shop.
