A winter warmer is a traditional malty-sweet English Strong Ale that is brewed in the winter months. It is usually quite dark, but not as dark as a stout, with a big malt presence. Sometimes, winter warmers have a few spices, especially in the United States, although spices are not necessarily a required ingredient in a winter warmer. The primary characteristic is strength; the average alcohol content by volume ranges from 6.0% to 8.0% ABV and some Winter Warmers reach 10% ABV or more. Christmas beer is another type of winter warmer, similarly strong in alcohol content and usually spiced.
The above is copied from Wikipedia, I use this as a starting place since this is my first Winter Ale. Pray for snow meets most of that...I will definitely ugly add Winter ales to the list to find the best of them.

12 oz bottle from my Beer of the Every Other Month Club poured into a tulip glass.

A -- Dark amber body, pretty clear. Nice tan head pours about an inch and then settles down. Pillowy. Good lacing.

N -- Smells like a tree. Not a pine tree, but one of those trees from the forest with the snow. A cold tree. Figgy too. A little booze smell. An old smell.

T -- Little boozy. A little sweet. Kind of fruity. That same tree note from the nose is present here too. Spicy on the back end -- didnt expect that. Probably a little too harsh.

M -- Harsh, like I said above. Drinkable. Big gulps are possible if you want them.

O -- Not bad. I would drink this again but it didnt blow me away. Cheers!

Poured from a 12 oz brown bottle into a Samuel Adams Perfect Pint glass. No freshness date evident. Received from Microbrew of the Month shipment courtesy of my sister Tami's generosity.

A: Ruby-brown with 1-finger of beige, foamy head with decent retention but spotty lacing.

S: Mild dark maltiness, some raisin and fig/date, medium and dark caramel crystal malts, and floral and light citrus/pine notes.

T: A very substantial and enjoyable beer -- reminds me of Avery Old Jubilation Ale but a little less old ale-ish. Excellent medium and dark crystal malt caramel notes with a little bit of a rum raisin and date profile. Hopping is pretty hefty but balanced with mostly floral but accents of pine, honeysuckle, and orange/grapefruit citrus. A little bit of yeast ester, nothing too much but a little fruity, and alcohol is well-hidden. Moderately bitter but well-balanced.

M: 10 Barrel does a nice job of keeping this beer smooth and drinkable, body is medium leaning toward medium-full, but it finishes very dry for a beer of its ABV without seeming watery. Carbonation is low-medium which also helps the drinkability.

O: I was very pleasantly surprised by this beer -- not a overspiced winter ale, just a solid higher than average ABV moderately hoppy ale. A really enjoyable beer.
