4.72/5 rDev +22.3%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5
Poured from a 750ml bottle (purchased at CCB on 1/9/11) into a Cigar City snifter.
Appearance: Pours a dark cola brown with a 2 finger creamy tan head with small bubbles floating on top. Excellent lacing.
Smell: Floral hops, cocoa, roasted malt and a hint of alcohol.
Taste: The flavor is extremely complex and well balanced. The main flavors I'm finding are sweet dried fruits up front followed by molasses and brown sugar in the middle and ending with just a touch of hoppy bitterness at the finish. The aftertaste is a mix of bitter and syrupy sweetness. The alcohol doesn't come through in the flavor, but you feel it warming up in your chest on the way down. This is one of the best tasting beers I've ever had.
Mouthfeel: Full-bodied with just the right amount of carbonation. Very thick and creamy. Goes down quite smooth.
Drinkability: Excellent drinkability. Obviously this is a sipper, but I'm not wanting to stop after my 8 ounce pour. This could easily sneak up on you because it's hard to put the glass down.
Overall: Excellent beer overall. There is really nothing negative I can say about Warmer Winter Winter Warmer. Perfect for a cold evening (or a 77 degree afternoon like today in southwest Florida). If you see it, try it. It's that good. Once again, Cigar City does not disappoint.

3.78/5 rDev -2.1%
look: 3.25 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75
~25ml portion of a 2013/14 bottle served in a Belgian snifter. Bottled on date: 8 Nov. 2013.
Pours a murky dark brown, leaving hardly a trace of sediment in the bottle.
Aroma: sweet and roasted grains, alcohol esters, cooked peaches and other fruits.
Flavor: sweet, bordering on too sweet, with plenty of soft and dark fruits, some alcohol esters, dark bread, chocolate, fruity hops, and hints of toffee and brown sugar.
O: Distinct, complex and interesting. Would likely benefit from some further aging.
